On Thursday 10th March, we’ll be hosting “Kitchen Kick Off” in celebration of the 6 Nations rugby tournament. A one-off event for food lovers and sporting fans alike, the evening will comprise a tasting menu created by an impressive line-up of six of the countries finest chefs, each representing one of the participating countries.
Representing Scotland, Almeida’s very own Tommy Boland will be serving up Roasted Scottish lamb, charred lettuce, carrots, wild garlic and almonds. Hoping to score the winning try for Italy will be Sartoria Chef Patron, Francesco Mazzei, with a dish of Tortelli with burrata, ‘nduja and aged Modena balsamic vinegar. Flying the flag for Ireland will be Robin Gill from The Dairy with his Bacon and cabbage speciality, whilst weighing in for Wales will be Bryn Williams of Odette’s with Odette’s Jaffa Cake, marmalade and Welsh yogurt sorbet. The culinary mascot for the French team will be Michelin starred Chef Eric Chavot, offering Salmon au mélasse with chilli slaw. Finally, Andy Wilson of Ashdown Park will be cooking up his Portland crab, salt baked beetroot, lemon emulsion and hazelnut dish, hoping to touchdown on behalf of The Roses.
Priced at £95 per person, this will include a drinks and canapé reception on arrival, followed by a six course tasting menu, matching wines, water and coffee. We’ll also be holding a live and silent auction.
Profits on the evening will go to Sports Relief.
