Frenchie’s Gregory Marchand launches collaboration with Sushi Shop globally
Gregory Marchand of Frenchie has launched a collaborative menu with Sushi Shop, which will be available worldwide, including London venues in Notting Hill, South Kensington, Marylebone, Hampstead and Richmond.
The menu of five dishes is inspired by flavours that fans of Frenchie – Covent Garden’s and Paris’ – will be familiar with, as inspiration for these dishes has been taken from Marchand’s own menu at Frenchie in Paris and Frenchie-to-Go. For example, flavours of FTG’s infamous fried chicken with jalapenos and spiced honey are mirrored in the Frenchie Roll (£8.90 for 8 pieces), an uramaki roll filled with crispy fried chicken, avocado, smoked paprika and sesame, topped with fondant of sweet piquillo pepper and spicy mayonnaise.
Marchand’s sushi selection will take customers on a culinary tour of the globe – with dishes such as the Mediterranean Bowl (£16.50), a combination of grilled octopus, pickled cucumber, Kalamata olive puree, Greek yoghurt, green harissa, spring onion, sobacha and smoked salt, inspired by Marchand’s octopus from Frenchie in Paris. Another dish will be the Satay Sushi (£2.90 for 1 piece), an Indonesian-inspired take on a classic nigiri with prawn, peanut and coconut sauce, enhanced with the fresh flavours of lime zest and grated coconut.
Other dishes include the Indian Spring (£5.50 for 6 pieces), a vegetarian sushi roll that subtly blends roasted carrot, dates, cheese, Japanese mayonnaise, coriander, vadouvan and lime, and the Scandinavian Roll (£6.50 for 6 pieces), a refreshing mix of smoked herring, cucumber and sobacha crunch, topped with a sprinkling of aromatic herbs.
The collaboration comes in a series of guest chefs who have partnered with Sushi Shop. In 2018 saw Anne Sophie Pic create a range of stunning dishes, with Mauro Colagreco following suit in 2019.
