Fairtrade Fortnight: Plate London Fairtrade Feast

March 5th

As part of our range of Fairtrade Fortnight offerings, we’ll be hosting culinary up-and-comer Yianni Hoffstead D’Gama of Plate London for a 3-course chocolate-based feast.

Since being set up in 2016, Plate London has gone from strengh-to-strength and built a strong reputation for putting subtle twists on classic dishes.

Yianni is fresh off the back of a successful month-long residency at the award-winning Duke’s Head in Highgate, and we’re excited to welcome him into our kitchen for one night only.

Guests will be treated to a decadent chocolate-rich banquet, featuring a starter of chocolate fried chicken, followed by beef sirloin and oxtail in a chocolate and red wine sauce, all capped off by a self-indulgent chocolate tart with hazelnut ice cream and boozy, boozy cherries. Vegetarian options are also available upon request.

Full Menu:

Starter – Chocolate fried chicken, sweetcorn purée, BBQ sweetcorn salsa.

Main Course – Sirloin of Beef, Oxtail toast, pomme purée, blackberries, chocolate & red wine sauce.

Dessert – Chocolate tart, hazelnut ice cream, boozy cherries.

At the banquet’s conclusion, guests will be invited back downstairs into our Cellar Bar where they will be able to discuss all they’ve seen and tasted, and sample our exclusive FAIRtrade fortnight serve.

Definitely one to keep tabs on for all you chocolate lovers out there. Tickets will be £45 per head, a portion of which will be donated towards the Fairtrade Foundation.
