From 4 to 7 July, London’s Cuckoo Club will be the location of A Piece On The Side, a new pop-up restaurant headed up by Eloise Schwerdt, formerly of Petersham Nurseries.

Schwerdt, 25, worked under Skye Gyngell in the kitchens of the Michelin-starred Petersham Nurseries for the past two years.

A Piece On The Side will be priced at £45 per person and guests will receive the following three-course set-menu dinner:

  • Starter: ​Heritage tomatoes with goats curd, zartar, purple basil and bruschetta.
  • Main: ​Fillet of beef with roasted beetroots, baby carrots, domestica rocket, horseradish cream and salsa verde.
  • Vegetarian option:​ Roasted vegetables with turmeric dressing, domestica rocket and bhatura
  • Dessert: ​Baklava ice cream with pistachios and viola flowers.

Schwerdt is currently working on a new food project with Gyngell which will launch later this year. Meanwhile, Gyngell has been announced as culinary director at Heckfield Place hotel,​the former hotel and conference centre in Hampshire which will re-open as a country house hotel in March 2013.
