Bespoke Caterers Blanch & Shock are holding a four course feast in Hackney on 22nd December. They're taking over The Russet in Hackney Down Studios for the night, to cook a Christmas dinner without a turkey.
"The last food we shall cook this year will be at The Russet, a new café opening this week in Hackney Downs, a new venture for Steve Wilson - Blanch & Shock associate chef and founder of The People's Kitchen at Passing Clouds.
We will be cooking four courses, and a few snacks at either end, and Steve will be running the bar. The menu will be not be a traditional Christmas spread but will instead serve to glorify the winter ingredients that remain despite the cold. There will be no turkey...
There are forty seats available at our table.
They cost forty pounds.
Carrots, juniper, rye, dill seed
Mussels, cauliflower and watercress
Pork, parsley root, medlars and chestnuts
Russet apples, fresh cheese, raisins
We are providing two options - a standard menu, and a vegetarian menu. If you have any allergies or intolerances, please inform us at the time of booking or e-mail - firstname.lastname@example.org"
