Blanch & Shock are a couple of very skilled chefs, who have popped up at a number of events before, including at the Circus 11 Christmas Fashion Market in December, where I met them and enjoyed some of their very delicious ice cream, made 'Heston style' with liquid nitrogen. Now they're cooking a whole dinner, for one night only, as part of the West Norwood Slow Food Festival - it should be great!
"We shall be cooking a dinner in St Luke's Church as part of the West Norwood Slow Food Festival on Saturday, March 31st. The dinner will feature traditional preserving techniques such as fermentation, pickling, culturing and curing and we aim to source ingredients produced as locally as possible.
There will be four courses and some snacks, and tickets are priced 35 pounds.
Two breads and two butters
Slow-cooked egg, jerusalem artichoke,
wild garlic and chicken sauce
Mussels, pearl barley, celeriac,
