INTRODUCTION – A TRIBUTE TO GARY RHODES
Thirty or something years ago at the ripe old age of twenty and near the start of my career, I had the privilege to train as a Commis Chef for a while under the influence of our very own Michelin starred and best of Great British Chefs, Gary Rhodes OBE.
I worked as a Commis Chef at The Green House Restaurant before Chef Gary arrived in Mayfair 1989/90 from the Castle Hotel in Taunton, Somerset and after having proved my worth to him in a short space of time, he made me a member in his new team.
I spent a year with Chef Gary and although my time with him was short considering I have now been cooking for over thirty years, I can honestly say it was definitely sweet and with his energy and professionalism it helped shape me to be the chef that I have become and I am so grateful for the education.
So as a tribute to him I want to show a little of what he taught me to say thank you for the privilege.
GOURMET EVENING – A TRIBUTE TO GARY RHODES
As this will be a tribute to the late Gary Rhodes I am making the night a non-profit event and all proceeds will be to cover the costs of the food and the hire of the event space.
On 28th March 2020 I am holding a pop up restaurant in East Dulwich for 24 guests where I will be cooking some of the dishes that Chef Gary taught me. The whole idea is that you will choose one dish from each course to make your own menu. The whole menu will consist of 3 choices of starters, 3 choices of main course and 3 choices of desserts, and what with Chef Gary growing up in and around East Dulwich himself, it could not be more fitting to bring it back to this part of London.
The space that I have hired only has room for 24 guests and I am sure it will fill fast so please do not hesitate in securing your seat for this special occasion.
This event is ticketed and the price per ticket is £40 each and as we do not hold a liquor licence to sell alcohol on the premises, on this occasion we are allowing you to bring a bottle of wine or your own liquid refreshment. (BRING YOUR OWN) and to kick the night off you will be greeted with a glass of Prosecco before we get start so please arrive early to the venue.
As I think I have covered all of what I need to be said at this point, it just leaves me to say thank you for taking your time to read.
Please follow the link below to Eventbright to claim your ticket and remember this works on a first come first served basis.
THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED- GO HERE TO BE NOTIFIED OF FUTURE POP-UP SUPPER CLUBS IN LONDON
See you soon, all the best!
