CRAFT LONDON HOSTS SMOKING & CURING WORKSHOP FOR LONDON FOOD MONTH
Sunday 3rd June
On Saturday 3rd June to mark London Food Month, we’re hosting a smoking and curing workshop led by our master smoker Chris Box.
Using Craft London’s traditional wooden draft smokehouse, participants have the chance to smoke meats and seafood for themselves, learn how to build a simple smoker to be replicated at home, and prepare a delicious lunch to enjoy that day.
Start the morning with an introductory coffee at Craft London’s café and then head across the kitchen gardens to Craft London’s on-site smokehouse, where they will be treated by Chris to a mini spectacle of hot and cold smoking in action. Chris will lead a hands-on workshop showing how to prepare and cure fish while discussing the process of smoking other produce such as vegetables, vinegars, butters and creams.
Participants will also be shown how to make a small smoker that can easily be replicated at home, and make snacks from an assortment of different items smoked that day. To round off the workshop, everyone will use the hot smoker to prepare part of a lunch to be served in the Craft London restaurant.
The three-course meal will include a seasonal cocktail and feature hot smoked salmon with kale, white cabbage & apple; 50 day-aged pork shoulder with wild garlic & asparagus; and black currant leaf ice cream with milk foam & meringue.
It’s £100 per person and takes place on Sunday 3rd June
The workshop is available to book by calling 0208 465 5910 or emailing email@example.com.
A monthly feasting dinner at Craft London
FEAST #4. “MOB GRAZING & DEVON COASTLINE”
Thursday 29th June, from 6pm
For the last two years, Stevie Parle and the team have been smoking, pickling and curing, we’ve had our first honey harvest and the Kitchen Gardens are fully up and running. Now it’s time for a new project: Thursday FEASTS.
Each month we’re joining forces with great British suppliers or top chefs to create a unique one-off menu with wine pairings, cocktails made using homemade ingredients and new cheeses from our suppliers at Neal’s Yard.
We’ll be posting more info soon but keep Thursday 29th June free as we get set to sample the finest food from Devon.
We’re hot footing it down to the South West and will come back to create a menu featuring mob-grazed lamb from Village Farm (featured in The Observer Food Monthly Top 50) alongside many wonderful ingredients supplied by the local producers and friends we meet on our way.
It’s our fourth feast – we think we’re getting better each time – it’s £45 and will include all the food; info to follow and please
