Stellar Line-up of Chefs to Appear at The Coal Shed Dinners

The Coal Shed London is set to welcome a line-up of esteemed chefs to its open kitchen at One Tower Bridge with a series of collaborative dinners held monthly throughout 2018.

Welcoming a different visiting chef each time to collaborate on an exclusive five-course menu for one service only, the first chef of the series will be Michael Bremner of 64º in Brighton, who will appear on Friday January 26.

The collaborative menu will celebrate meat, fish and fire with standout dishes including monkfish with kelp butter, Jerusalem artichoke and mussel sauce and a delicious 71-day dry aged rump of Longhorn beef (to share) served with braised short rib, roasted hispi, bone marrow mash and hollandaise.

An innovative and experimental chef originally from Scotland, Bremner cut his teeth in celebrated kitchens in Australia, Canada and London before settling in Brighton and opening debut restaurant 64º, which has retained a Michelin Bib Gourmand since opening in 2014.

Seen on TV screens in BBC Two’s Great British Menu, Bremner sailed through the heats last year with a series of top scores from the judges, clinching a finalist spot and the prestigious honour to cook the main course at a banquet celebrating 140 years of Wimbledon.

Each visiting chef will collaborate with The Coal Shed London’s Executive Head Chef Dave Mothersill, Head Chef Chris Ditch and Head Pastry Chef Laura Petersen on a creative five-course menu.

Diners will be welcomed by a drink on arrival before sitting down to five outstanding courses, each dish a collaboration between The Coal Shed London team and the visiting guest chef. Peering into the open kitchen, diners will be able to watch the chefs in action cooking meat and fish over hot coals and plating up each course delicately.

Each evening begins at 7pm with advance booking required. The menu is priced at £55 per person with wine pairing available for an additional £30 per person. Dietary requirements can be catered for on early request.

Following Michael Bremner, The Coal Shed London will welcome Tom Brown (former head chef of Outlaw’s at The Capital, who is opening his first restaurant, Cornerstone in Hackney Wick) on February 17 and Pip Lacey (former Murano chef opening first restaurant Hicce in London) on March 24.
