Carousel Announces Stellar Line-up of Guest Chef Residencies

Carousel, Marylebone’s revolving creative hub, has announced its upcoming roster of guest chef residencies for the next two months.

As always, each of the esteemed chefs will work alongside head chef Ollie Templeton and his team to prepare a set four or five-course dinner menu that showcases their signature style. Kicking things off in February (6-10) will be Glaswegian hot spot Alchemilla, whose head chef Rosie Healey will showcase her modern, sharing approach to Mediterranean cooking.

Rosie is followed (from February 13-24) by the return of acclaimed Mexican chef Santiago Lastra, formerly of Mugaritz and Bror, and recently René Redzepi’s right hand man at NOMA Mexico.

Locavore favourites Elements from Pyrénées-Atlantiques (February 27-March 3) and Le Pourquoi Pas of Brittany (March 6-10) are up next, each demonstrating their own unique approach to French gastronomy, while guests will be treated to a fortnight of contemporary Scottish cooking in March with the arrival of Scott Smith of Edinburgh-based Norn, who takes over at Carousel from March 13-24.

Carousel’s front-of-house team takes care of wine and cocktail pairings for each dinner, tickets for which are all priced at £39.50 per person, while drinks and service are charged as extra.
