Executive head chef of Jason Atherton’s Social Wine & Tapas, Frankie Van Loo, will be hosting a collaborative dinner with head chef of The Palomar, Tomer Amedi on Tuesday 13 September.
With a shared passion for Spanish cuisine, the chefs have curated a menu influenced by the rich cultures of the Iberian Peninsula, combined with the Middle-Eastern influences fundamental to The Palomar’s pioneering approach to cooking.
Second in the series of Social Wine & Tapas’ collaborative dinners and available for one night only, the six-course menu will offer guests the opportunity to experience a selection of dishes chosen by the two chefs to showcase the essence of each restaurant’s style of cooking, while working together harmoniously to deliver a unique experience for the diner.
To begin, guests will enjoy snacks such as Frankie Van Loo’s piquillo pepper croquette with saffron and Tomer Amedi’s chickpeas, octopus and amba, before sampling dishes including Social Wine & Tapas’s Cumbrian Herdwick lamb rack with spiced aubergine, and polenta with wild mushrooms, truffle and yolk from The Palomar.
For dessert, the menu will feature classic Crema Catalana served with Frankie’s twist of crystallised pistachio, followed by stilton cheesecake, apricot, chilli and pumpkin seeds served by Tomer.
Inspired by the recent interest in Middle Eastern wines, Social Wine & Tapas’ Executive Sommelier, Laure Patry, has created a dynamic list of wines from the region to enhance both the flavour profile of each dish and the experience for each guest.
Priced at £55 per person, the dinner is available to book between 6:30pm and 9:00pm. Bookings can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
