A Cultivated Plate

We are lucky to have the talented Paul Leonard join us at Edinburgh Food Studio. "A Cultivated Plate" is on the 22, 23, 24 June 2017.

Paul Leonard is the head chef of the restaurant at Isle of Eriska (*) since May 2016. He previously worked at Andrew Fairly (**) for 2 years and The Samling as well as Marcus Wareing at The Berkeley. 

His cuisine is deeply rooted into ingredients grown locally along with seasonality and sustainability. It is during his years at Andrew Fairly that Paul had the chance to start farming alongside chefing. He understood very quickly the labour and energy behind growing his own vegetables, which triggered his passion for what he grows and what he can do with it.

Paul has brought to Eriska his passion for farming. He has a daily contact at the kitchen garden of the restaurant, of which the emphasis is on the finest Scottish ingredients, cultivated and foraged along with local producers and sustainable fishing. 

Paul is preparing a full menu based on the ingredients he works with all year round. He will also be bringing with him some of his preparations that are typically made at the kitchen's restaurant. 

This event will consist of 7 courses for the outrageous bargain of £42, with an optional drinks pairing available for £35. Dinner is served at 8pm and guests are welcomed to join us from 7:30 onwards.

Four Simmer, A Night of Poetry and Flavour.

This unique collaboration series between food & poetry will use flavour, scent, and colour in response to some of Scotland’s most distinct voices. A delicious evening which will touch all of your senses.

Hosted by Salitre award winning poet  Ryan Van Winkle, 'Simmer' pairs four poets with dishes carefully selected & prepared to illuminate and echo their work. Readings will be from Emily Ballou, JL Williams, Ron Butlin, and Tom Pow.

Emily Ballou is an Australian poet, novelist and screenwriter. The Darwin Poems (University Western Australia Press) was awarded the 2010 Wesley Michel Wright Poetry Prize, highly commended in the Anne Elder Award and shortlisted for the Kenneth Slessor Prize for Poetry, the Mary Gilmore Prize, the ALS Gold Medal and the WA Premier’s Prize. She lives in Scotland.

Books by JL Williams include Condition of Fire (Shearsman, 2011), Locust and Marlin (Shearsman, 2014), Our Real Red Selves (Vagabond Poets, 2015) and House of the Tragic Poet (If A Leaf Falls Press, 2016). A new collection exploring the fine line between abundance and apocalypse, After Economy, was published by Shearsman Books in May 2017. She is interested in expanding dialogues through poetry across languages, perspectives and cultures and in cross-form work, visual art, dance, opera and theatre.

With an international reputation as a prize-winning novelist, RON BUTLIN is a former Edinburgh Makar / Poet Laureate. He has published nearly twenty books and his work has won many prizes and been translated into over a dozen languages. His previous novel, Ghost Moon, was nominated for the international IMPAC Prize 2016. This year sees the publication of a new novel,Billionaires’ Banquet; a novel for early teens, Steve & FranDan Take on the World; and a book of verse for children, Day of the Trolls! He lives in Edinburgh with his wife and their dog. His website: www.ronbutlin.co.uk

Tom Pow bySophieKandaouroff.jpg

Tom Pow has written across a range of genres, including fiction, non-fiction, drama and works for children. But he is primarily a poet. His work explores the domestic, but it also travels to other places and other periods. Dear Alice, Narratives of Madness concerns the legacy of a nineteenth century lunatic asylum, while A Wild Adventure is a speculative poetic biography of Thomas Watling, a Dumfries forger transported to Botany Bay. In The Becoming, New and Selected Poems, was published in 2009 and Recolectores de Nueces, a bi-lingual selection of poems, translated by Jorge Fondebrider, was published in Mexico in 2016.

If you would like to join in this evening of thought, lyrics and flavours, please book early to avoid disappointment. If the previous iteration of Simmer is anything to go by, it will be a surefire success, and a joy for all. The dinner costs £42 per person, with an optional drinks pairing of £35 with drinks chosen to match the menu, and of course, the poems. Dinner is served at 8pm and guests are welcomed to join us from 7:30 onwards.

Neighbouring Mountain

Neighbouring Mountain

We feel priviledged to announce this upcoming collaboration with the hyper-talented Slovenian chef Ana Roš, on 8, 9, 10 December 2016. The self taught star, featured on Netflix's Chef's Table has spent the last 16 years innovating Slovenian cuisine. During this event, Ana will give our Scottish larder a twist and flair of Slovenian technique – something we are super excited to witness.

Born in Nova Gorica in 1972, Ana Roš has persued careers in athletics, international and diplomatic sciences, and while studying languages worked at restaurant Hiša Franko. It is during this period that Ana discovered her passion for food and decided to take over the kitchen in 2000. 

Hiša Franko is a country house and estate in Kobarid which refuses to be a classical hotel or a fine dining restaurant. The estate is simply a place of enjoyment. Enjoyment of Slovenia's produce, its food culture, and its landscape.

A strong ambassador of Slovenian culture, Ana Roš works with food producers and ingredients from her local surroundings – her main ethos is to understand and preserve local tradition. However, rather than keeping these stagnating in time, she employs technical and scientific innovations to her cooking, keeping her traditions alive. 

After taking over Hiša Franko, Ana learned how to run a kitchen from scratch. She worked hard, learning from traditional and modern cook books. With time she found her own voice - some kind of reflection emerged, of her character and femininity against the backdrop of the landscape, constantly evolving through the seasons. Ana’s cooking is characterised by the raw essence of each ingredient, her playfulness comes through in her use of surprise, contrast and texture.

Since taking over Hiša Franko, Ana has received a lot of visibility. In 2010 she was awarded ‘Manager of the Year’ by Slovenian Tourism. In 2012 she joined 'Cook it Raw Poland', a unique dining experience exploring social, cultural and environment issues. In 2015 she was part of Gelinaz grand shuffle in New York. In the same year she received The Talent award from Jeunes Restauranteurs d'Europe (JRE) and shot Netflix Chef's Table, the whole episode (S2 E5) is focussed on Ana and Hiša Franko. 

It is a great honour to welcome Ana Roš to Edinburgh Food Studio for three nights of delights.  Dinner commences at 8pm, and guests are welcome from 7:30pm onwards. The set menu costs £42, and an optional drinks pairing menu will be available for £35.

To book the “Neighbouring Mountain” dinner on either 8, 9, 10 December email book@edinburghfoodstudio.co or call 0131 258 0758. To avoid disappointment, please book in advance and let us know of your dietary requirements.

Create from Nothing

We are extremely happy to host michelin-starred chef Sasu Laukkonen from Finland at Edinburgh Food Studio for a three day winter event "Create from Nothing". From 1st to 3rd December, Sasu will be exploring Scottish ingredients with a Finnish twist.

Since his 17 years old Sasu has worked in kitchens all over. Sasu has internship experiences at Château Carsin in Bordeaux, Lux and F12 in Stockholm, and was head chef to La Petite Maison and Loft Restaurant & Lounge in Helsinki. A chef de Cuisine from the heart, Sasu Laukkonen opened his own restaurant called Chef & Sommelier (http://chefetsommelier.fi) in Helsinki in October 2010, and was awarded one michelin star in 2014. 

Sasu focuses on organic and wild produce, but also uses natural and ethically sourced ingredients. A lot of his produce is grown in the restaurant's garden and foraged from the Finnish countryside. His restaurant has brought two things to the Helsinki restaurant scene: supply to the organic dining demand and give people the experience of enjoying handmade cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere. 

Self-taught chef, Sasu's cuisine is ambitious, pure in taste, handmade, original, and cooked from the heart. Finesse-dining is what he wants guests to experience.

Dinner starts at 8pm, and guests are welcome from 7:30pm. The set menu costs £42, and an optional drinks pairing menu will be available for £35.

We serve a fixed four course menu, and if you have any dietary requirements then please let us know in advance. We advise arriving with an open mind and an empty stomach. 

Dinner is £42 for a fixed 7 course menu with an optional £35 drinks pairing. Your evening meal is served at 8pm, and guests are welcome to join us from 7:30pm onwards.

For more information, please call 0131 258 0758 or email book@edinburghfoodstudio.co

The Plagiarism Dinners

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.
