On Sunday 24th November, chef and YBF winner Giles Clark (Young Turks, St John, Koya) and Tutto Wines are hosting a 4 course Sunday Lunch with paired wines at The Rooftop Cafe on London Bridge Road. A rare chance to experience this fast-rising talent away from his regular restaurants.
"Even by todays standards, chef Giles Clark has covered a lot of ground for a young chef. While studying at Trinity College in Dublin and working at the 2 Michelin Star Patrick Guilbauds, Giles would spend his summers staging in the kitchens around the world that inspired him. These included Alice Waters' Chez Panisse, New York's Union Square Cafe, Alinea in Chicago and Copenhagen's Noma.
Since returning to London he has worked for the Young Turks as part of their residency at the 10 Bells and more recently at Spitalfields' St John Bread and Wine. He is currently sous chef at Soho restaurant Koya, where he and head chef Junya Yamasaki do wonderful things combining British produce with Japanese technique. Giles was recently voted Best Chef 2013 by a panel of peers in the Young British Foodie awards, where he was praised for his innovation and is undoubtedly one of the most exciting talents cooking in the UK today.
Alex Whyte and Damiano Fiamma started Tutto Wines to share with London the wines of Italy that they love to drink. These are wine from growers who have a respect for the grape, the land and Italy's winemaking traditions. From the delicate alpine Nebbiolo of Valtellina to Marsala's thewy, salty Grillo. Thrilling wines from grapes and places you may not have heard out but will undoubtedly love.
They travel to Italy regularly to seek out wines of balance, grace and most of all drinkability. Wines that speak of where they are from and complement the food on the table. Tutto Wines supply many of London's top restaurants including The Rooftop Cafe and we can't wait to see what they'll be pouring at this event."
