The evenings will each feature four courses, created in collaboration with Craft London head chef Anna Garcia Cortes, Parle, and the month’s guest chef.
Hill, now at the Michelin-starred restaurant The Walnut Tree Inn in Abergavenny, was head chef at Gidleigh Park for nine years, and chef patron at the Merchant House restaurant for 10 years.
His Craft London menu will feature dishes from his new cookbook Salt. These will include pressed salmon with chard and dill pancakes and ‘pork in shirtsleeves’.
All dishes will aim to demonstrate the curing, preserving and fermenting ethos of Craft London, which, since opening two years ago has also developed its own smoking and pickling processes. It also harvests its own honey and grows its own herbs and vegetables.
Each monthly event will also showcase a new selection of cheeses from Neal’s Yard, new cocktails using homemade ingredients, and a wine flight from the Craft London wine list, which is curated by wine expert Ruth Spivey.
If the Thursday event happens to coincide with a gig at the nearby O2 Arena, the a la carte menu will also be served.
Craft London opened in 2015 as a Tom Dixon-designed café and roastery, quickly followed by the restaurant, cocktail bar, and shop.
Its activities include coffee roasting, fish smoking, bee keeping, meat curing, vegetable fermentation and pickling, and the creation and maintenance of a kitchen garden.
Chef and restaurateur Parle opened his first restaurant the Dock Kitchen in London’s Ladbroke Grove, in 2009, and now also runs Rotorino in Dalston, Sardine in Shoreditch, and Palatino in Clerkenwell.
