This marks the first in a brand new series of tasting menus at the restaurant, taking place throughout the year. Head chef Stuart Cauldwell, one of Roast’s Sussex-based farmers, has […]

Cooking up a storm: TMRW Project Presents the Chefs of Tomorrow

There’s not many things we Londoners love more than food, new places to eat, and talented chefs with shiny new menus – that’s exactly what Chefs of Tomorrow is promising. Started in 2015, Chefs of Tomorrow was Dan Doherty’s (of London favourite Duck and Waffle) idea to find a way for young chefs to grow, develop and connect with each other and others in the industry. He has since teamed up with writer Anna Sulan Masing and Emily Underwood (of Burnt Truffle) for a collaboration entitled the TMRW project.

Jason Atherton Opens Hai Cenato

If you go to Italy and they say Hai Cenato then say no. Why? Because it translates to ‘Have you had dinner?’ and if there is the chance for more food, especially in Italy, you’ve always get to say yes. If someone here asks if you’ve been to Hai Cenato then you’ll want to say no too. Why? It’s also the name of the next restaurant from The Social Company and you then have an excuse for your friend to take you…sneaky. Opening in Nova next week, it’s the second time that Jason and Irha Atherton have collaborated with Chef […]
