Omnivore – A First for London
Omnivore, a leading international food festival, originated in France. Celebrating young and contemporary cuisine, it has now become something of an International trip. Sponsored by Evian and Badiot, this September for the first time it will be in London giving young English chefs the chance to meet with world class international colleagues for mutual inspiration and collaboration. The best thing is, we are all invited to come along to Omnivore London and see what results from this exciting line-up of talent.
Already confirmed are London based James Lowe (Lyle’s) and Amandine Chaignot (Rosewood London) whilst international talent includes Gregory Marchand (Frenchie, Paris), Franck Baranger (Caillebotte, Paris) and Pierre Sang Boyer (Pierre Sang in Oberkampf) on the ‘chef stage’, with a myriad of rising stars of mixology on the ‘liquid stage’.
Acting as a culinary hub Omnivore will bring together 16 master chefs from England and across the globe to share culinary inspirations and experiment with innovative techniques in London’s East End. On top of that there’ll be dinners across the area for discoveries and the pleasures of contemporary cuisine.
It all takes place at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane with an outpost at Lyle’s serving the ‘Amazing Dinners’. And, it’s running from 10th to 13th September. So put the dates in your diary now.
From 10th – 13th September 2015 English chefs will meet world-class international chefs for mutual inspiration and collaboration while Londoners are invited to discover young and contemporary cuisine.
Things are still at the planning stage, but some of the confirmed chefs are as follows:
- James Lowe (Lyle’s) will open the festival with 3 preparations: “1. Scallop / 2. Grouse / 3. Heritage Plums”
- Fergus Henderson (St John Bread & Wine) will be creating a Pig’s Head Pie
- Jocelyn Herland (Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester) will cook “Roast Scottish Langoustines, broccoletti and green almonds”
- Ed Wilson (Brawn), will focus on natural and “pure” ingredients to prepare 2 dishes : “1. Mackerel, Oyster & Seaweed” and “2. Scallop, Potato & Roe” He says “We will prepare two different crudo’s of seafood sourced from the british coasts”
If the food isn’t enough, there will be some awesome mixologist on stage too, showing you how to create some of the finest bar experiences in the world. Mixologists and Bar experts include Monica Berg, Alex Kratena and Wesley Pickering and finally Nathan O’Neill
