The Ikoyi Staff Food Waste Project
“Waste not, want not” is a good adage to live by.
It even recycles the word ‘not’.
And the ethically driven guys behind St. James’s critically lavished West African restaurant, Ikoyi, are taking it extremely seriously – this month they’re holding a pair of special dinners which will showcase a unique tasting menu experience based on the waste products from their kitchen.
It’s called the Staff Food Waste Project, and it’ll involve 4 courses of experimental dishes. You can expect the likes of:
- A Lamb Skin, Pistachio & Flower Sandwich
- Caramelised Fish with Sorrel & Corn Pottage
- Octopus Head Miyan Taushe with Fermented Jollof Rice
- Milk Solids, Spent Cameroonian Coffee & Salted Zobo Caramel
You can of course snap up some of their wine or cocktails to go with it all.
Just don’t get wasted.
NOTE: The The Ikoyi Staff Food Waste Project will be priced at £45 and will take place on the 13th or 27th of May – you can book tickets HERE.
