Former Noma Mexico Sommelier Honey Spencer is set to join forces this winter with tfp Culinary Congress speaker Elizabeth Haigh, formerly of Michelin starred Pidgin restaurant, on a series of pop-up dinners at Hackney's Narroway Studios.
Between 6-8 December, Haigh will be creating a five-course “modern" Christmas feast paired with an intricate small batch selection of wines from around the world as chosen by Spencer.
Menu highlights include pigeon, duck and goose pithivier with coffee roasted carrots and smoked XO sprout tops; buttermilk ramen chicken with caviar, miso mayo and taré sauce; and coconut and cinnamon s'mores with kaya jam.
Narroway Studio is a creative food space and photography studio and will have space for 30 guests.
Elizabeth Haigh continues to develop her Kaizen House concept, building her own restaurants and incorporating the Japanese philosophy of continuous improvement to other ancillary projects. Kaizen House's first project will be a restaurant named Shibui, due early 2019, which will promote wood fire cooking, European dishes with subtle details and bold asian flavour accents - one to watch.
