BLANCH & SHOCK at ARTICHOKE MEWS
After almost nine years of cooking in fields, warehouses, offices, museums and WWII bunkers, we are ready for our own place. Somewhere that can encapsulate all the work we do, from dinners to workshops, tastings and talks, and which will have our identity stamped on it a way that was previously not possible.
In a former office in a mews in Camberwell we've built an open kitchen and dining room. Everything is on show - there is no back or front of house. A small kitchen, packed with possibilities. At the end of each month we will open our doors for a series of dinners, served on two communal tables.
We will be cooking a set menu of five courses with some snacks at either end of the menu, and our homemade bread and butter. Mike has put together a drinks list, and we will also offer a non-alcoholic drink pairing. For our inaugural month, we shall be exploring and updating some of our favourite dishes from the 267 menus we have created since 2009.
Tickets for dinner cost £48 per person for the full menu and a glass of something fizzy to start. There is no additional booking fee. We can accommodate most dietary requirements and allergies but we must know about them at the time of booking.
Our first dinners will be on Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th February
