For those who are just as passionate about good food as they are about good music, The English Restaurant has decided to reveal a tantalising taste of the menu in anticipation of Food, Wine and Song on Friday 7 June.
Pastry Chef at The English Restaurant, Rob Meldrum, will be preparing a trio of desserts adapted from the Food, Wine and Song cookery book. He’ll be serving:
Pear frangipane tart
& Saffron cake
Rob is no stranger to spinning sugar and creating culinary masterpieces out of pastry. His impressive back story begins with him learning French patisserie skills with le pâtissier extraordinaire Nicolas Houchet. Following that, he became Head Pastry Chef at former Notting Hill restaurant Pharmacy, owned by contemporary artist Damien Hurst, and has worked at Clapham’s boutique café Le Macaron where he perfected the art of making macaroons!
Food, Wine and Song is a concert by The Orlando Consort at Christ Church Spitalfields followed by a three-course meal at The English Restaurant. Full event tickets are £59 (concert-only tickets are £12, upgrades will be available, subject to availability, on the evening at the venue).
