You’re invited to a house party.
But before you run screaming for the hills, hear us out.
Because the One Star House Party is a bit of a misnomer – it is, in fact, a travelling pop up restaurant that is now halfway through its planned route of 20 different countries in 20 months.
It comes to you from a heart-palpitating trio of chefs, who cut their teeth at Noma, The Ledbury and Tom Aikens respectively (that part’s not a mis-Noma). Together, they’re travelling around the world, creating a pop up eatery everywhere they go, that draws on surrounding ingredients and local techniques to create a new menu from scratch each time. So far, that’s included Vietnamese night trains, Mumbai street food and the base camp at Everest – and, luckily for you, they’re also swinging by the slightly more accessible area of West London this October.
For four weeks only, they’ll be holding court in the Unit 1 Gallery | Workshop, in an atmospheric space amidst the current exhibition of the surreal works of sculptor Hermione Allsopp. As their ninth stop on the itinerary, they’ll be creating an eight-course tasting menu, with each dish inspired by a different place they’ve visited so far – so you can expect nods to China, Oman, India, Vietnam, Thailand, South Africa, Kenya and, er, Mount Everest.
But don’t worry – we’re sure they won’t peak too early.
NOTE: One Star House Party will be appearing at the Unit 1 Gallery | Workshop in West London from 5th October – 3rd November 2017. Reservations open at noon on September 15th, and the set tasting menu will cost £85pp (BYOB). To reserve and find out more, head to their website HERE.
