Keeping Food Interesting
Upcoming Events, Workshops &Tastings
Join us for North Sea Saga dinner series. Esben Holmboe Bang, head chef and co-owner of Norway’s ground-breaking three Michelin-starred Restaurant Maaemo comes to Edinburgh to explore our larder, and share his delicious creativity.
Blanch & Shock like to do things a little differently. As neither a restaurant nor a caterer, but something like both, they have made diverse food projects around the UK and beyond, from Edible Cinema events to exploding cakes to recreations of artistic meals served in 19070s Soho, New York.
Based in London, they often collaborate with performers, designers, scientists and historians to produce dinners illustrating disparate ideas such as the four humours, Anglo-Norman food, neuroscience, and the world of Twin Peaks.
At their heart of even the most playful of their dinners is a love for British terroir, and the chance to apply techniques from around the world to the best ingredients, both wild and cultivated.
This is a unique collaboration. On 17, 18 and 19 November we are joined by three of the world's best bar tenders - who will serve our guests a unique drinks menu. Alex Kratena, Simone Caporale and Monica Berg are real superstars of the industry. If you already know them, you'll know you want to book. If you don't know them, read a little about them here, then book.
