Alisdair Brooke-Taylor at Carousel
They get around.
At Carousel in Marylebone, however, the concept is slightly switched up. The restaurant itself stays sedentary, and instead invites a rotating series of exceptional guest chefs to helm the kitchen. And this month, they’ve got someone really rather special lined up for you.
His name is Alisdair Brooke-Taylor, he’s Australian, and he’s worked at places like Viajante & The Harwood Arms, and has been the right hand man to Kobe Desramaults at Belgium’s legendary In De Wulf. But for the past half decade he’s been cooking off the beaten track, in extremely rural areas, in order to hone his raw skills and better understand how to source ingredients.
Now he’s back in civilisation once again, and coming to Carousel to get back on the horse.
He’s curated a spectacular-sounding 4-course menu for his eleven day stint; you can expect dishes like wild apples baked in salt merengue with langoustines & braised veal; grilled cucumbers with hazelnuts & crab butter; or a gratin of carrots, plums, and lavender.
It’s just begging you to give it a whirl.
NOTE: You’ll find Alisdair Brooke-Taylor at Carousel from August 29th – September 9th. Tickets cost £39, and are on sale now right HERE.
