Whole Beast ’Not Native’ Dinner in SE1


On Monday 30th September 2019, Whole Beast, the nose to tail specialists, are cooking at London Bridge’s Native as part of their ongoing ’Not Native’ chef series. In what seems like a perfect pairing, Whole Beast will be collaborating on a menu that uses ingredients considered ‘invasive’ to the UK alongside their signature fat, bones and offal.
Tickets are just £50 from the link below - and you can see other collaboration nights being held on Mondays at Native here.

"Sam Bryant and Alicja Specjalna met at Coal Rooms Peckham.
Now the duo are going properly primitive with their nose-to-tail concept, Whole Beast. Using flame, smoke, ember and ash to achieve subtle variances in flavour and texture - like pyromaniac sommeliers, matching different woods to different cuts for maximum taste – the pair pride themselves on using every element of the animal to ensure that absolutely nothing is wasted. Fat, bones, offal and all. Using both of their Norfolk and Polish heritage to create menus with both provenance and frugality over live fire."

When - Monday 30th September 2019

Where - Native, 32 Southwark St, London SE1 1TU

Tickets - £50 from Native here
