Chris Jordan, who runs many events around London under the 'A Taste' banner, is popping up for two days at Startisans market in Covent Garden for a four course tasting menu. It runs on Fri 27th & Sat 28th February - plus it's BYOB
"On Friday 27 and Saturday 28 February, Startisans will be giving diners the chance to enjoy a themed evening of fresh, seasonal food at its first-ever pop-up restaurant. The restaurant, called ‘tasting room’ will be celebrating something quintessentially British: tea. Apart from the obvious tea-smoked dishes, you can expect to find a clever but subtle use of the essential ingredient, bringing an element of fun and surprise to the evening.
The pop-up restaurant is being held by London company, A taste. run by Australian head chef, Chris Jordan. A taste. sources its ingredients from nearby farmer’s markets and small business. Chris says, “I set up A taste. to give a new twist to traditional British cooking. I make delicious food based around different themes that give the evening a fun, quirky feel.”
Chris also believes that eating should be a shared experience, so his ‘tasting room’ restaurant will have a relaxed atmosphere with food being served at large, communal tables. The 4-course menu offers good value being priced at just £35 per head and will include a welcome cocktail.
Startisans is an indoor food market on Shelton Street in Covent Garden that showcases artisan food producers and street food stalls. Chris Jordan was formerly chef at the acclaimed Flying Fish & restaurant in Sydney.
