Bad chefs get a lump of coal in their stocking.
Good chefs get a lump of coal in their… well this analogy breaks down here, but the gist is that they get invited to The Coal Shed in order to collaborate on a series of dinners held monthly throughout 2018.
One of the newest additions to the Tower Bridge development, TCS has snatched up some rather excellent reviews in its short time with us so far (you can read all about the place right HERE), and is aiming to build on that critical lavishment by bussing in a few of the country’s finest chefs to each put together a five-course feast.
Things have already kicked off via a partnership with Great British Menu winner Michael Bremner, who’s lineup includes monkfish with kelp butter & mussel sauce; jerk roasted butternut squash; 71-day dry aged rump of longhorn with braised short rib & bone marrow; and some rum & vanilla coal-roasted pineapple.
In February, the reins will be handed over to Tom Brown (formerly with Outlaw’s at The Capital, opening his first restaurant Cornerstone in Hackney Wick) who’ll be feeding his lucky diners with octopus cooked in cider; BBQ duck with blood orange; raw scallops with tarragon dressing; coal-roasted oysters; and a pauper cake with Yorkshire rhubarb & clotted cream.
Which all sounds like it belongs on the nice list.
NOTE: The Chefs Collaboration series is available now. The five-course menu is priced at £55 per person with wine pairing available for an additional £30 per person. You can find out more, and book a spot at their website right HERE.
