The London Shell Co.'s All-Female Dinner Cruises

The London shell Co All-Female Dinner Cruises

Women’s suffrage was ratified 100 years ago this year.

And it ended a lot of women’s suffering.

And to celebrate that fact, the London Shell Co. are going to launch a very special series of dinners onboard their canal-cruising boatstarant, with some of the city’s finest female culinary talent.

They’re invited guest chef Elizabeth Haigh (née Allen) – former head chef at the Michelin-starred Pidgin – onboard to helm the kitchen, while the decks will remain un-manned… because they’ll be staffed entirely by women, too.

The evenings week take place on Wednesdays throughout April from Paddington Central, and the wood-fired, Asian-inspired menu will include:

  • Roasted oyster, sake, vinegar, butter
  • Smoked mussels, courgette flower, togerashi
  • Burnt spring onion pancake, lardo, peas, chilli, peashoots
  • Purple sprouting broccoli, wild garlic miso, cured egg
  • Barbecue beef onglet, 24-hour smoked cabbage
  • Sides of bitter leaves and jersey royal new potatoes
  • Strawberries, meringue, pandan mousse, sorrel

If you want, you can have it all paired with wines from female-only wine producers, which will be carefully chosen by top sommelier and head of Stannary Women’s Wine Club, Caroline Brangè.
