About Time You Tried: East Meets West at Tom’s Kitchen ChelseaBy Angelica Malin
Looking for something fun and different? Well, this February, Tom Aikens and the Typing Room’s Lee Westcott are hosting a collaborative, one-off dinner at Tom’s Kitchen Chelsea, which is going to be fantastic. Here’s what you need to know:
The evening will begin with Tom and Lee introducing the five course tasting menu, and talking through the produce and skills involved in creating the Modern European dishes that combine the best of their experiences and creativity.
The menu will include scallops with fermented grains and lardo, Foie Gras mousse with ham hock jelly and lentils, smoked and braised beef cheek with baked beets and beet mash. Sea Trout with kohlrabi, sprouting broccoli and pear and a dessert of chocolate and blood orange. The dinner will take place at 7pm on Tuesday 2nd February, priced at £80 including matching wines throughout.
Lee Westcott spent the formative years of his career working together with Tom Aikens at his eponymous two Michelin-starred restaurant. After stints working abroad with Jason Atherton, Lee returned to the UK to become Executive Chef of the hugely successful Typing Room in Bethnal Green, as well as starring on shows such as Saturday Kitchen and Great British Menu. Tom meanwhile has been busy opening the Tom’s Kitchen restaurants across London, as well as heading up projects in Hong Kong, Dubai and Oxfordshire.
