Joining forces for an exclusive three date supper-club, we collaborated with American bar and restaurant Christopher’s, for a feast of venison doughnuts, chicken and truffle waffles and dessert inspired by a stateside classic in October 2017.
Fresh off the back of our sell-out Southbank pop-up, we teamed our passion for the soul food of America with the experience of Christopher’s Head Chef Francis Agyepong, who has been at the helm of Christopher’s kitchen for over 20 years, in a five-course feast.
Hosted in the heart of London’s Theatreland, the supper-club was held in the 1930s deco-inspired surrounds of Christopher’s Club Room, and focused on celebrating American favourites with the flavours of US soul street-food.
An arrival cocktail kickstarted the evening, before guests were seated to enjoy Francis, Billy and Jack’s creations including a spiced venison doughnut, with orange and cardamom; followed by a Waldorf salad like no other. We spent hours in the Christopher’s kitchen with Francis, perfecting the ultimate chicken n’ truffle waffle served with crispy chicken skin, ricotta cep mousse, corn cream, spiced buttermilk bark and a truffle gravy.
The main saw us go head-to-head with Christopher’s through a riff on Surf n’ Turf; we served up Surf of langoustine with fresh corn, whilst Christopher’s brought their Turf game to the table with grilled Prime USDA NY strip sirloin steak. Guests finished the evening with a touch of pure American nostalgia – a twist on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich - Peanut butter parfait paired with strawberry and pink peppercorn marshmallow, fresh and macerated strawberries served with strawberry jelly, peanut brittle & clusters, peanut butter sauce and brioche crisps.
‘Christopher’s celebrated its 25th Anniversary last year and the key to its success has always been to keep things fresh, whilst serving the best American food in London. This seemed like a great opportunity to celebrate both aspects.’
