Fiend restaurant to host guest chef supper clubs with Ollie Dabbous and Gareth Ward
Innovative Notting Hill restaurant Fiend is hosting two special dinners with celebrated chefs in the coming weeks. Ollie Dabbous and Gareth Ward will visit the venue to present contrasting menus, carefully devised by the culinary icons, as part of the restaurant’s Supper Club series.
The first dinner, which takes place on 17th May, will see Chris Denney cooking with Dabbous. Formerly of 108 Garage, Michelin-chaser Denney is the owner of Fiend, his guest the man behind Mayfair sensation Hide. They will prepare a spring-inspired menu in a demonstration of their unique style and approach.
Next, on 30th July, Denney will be joined by Gareth Ward, head chef and co-owner of Welsh restaurant Ynyshir, and the winner of Good Food Guide’s Chef of the Year award in 2019. With two Michelin stars and five AA rosettes, Ynyshir is the most highly decorated restaurant in Wales, and one of the very best in the whole of the UK. This dinner will focus on primarily on meat.
Both nights will feature a guest appearance by Jose Sol, master slicer at Pata Negra (the family-owned Putney restaurant that specialises in authentic tapas). The industry expert on Spanish cuisine will be hand-slicing a special jamon for diners.
Meanwhile Fiend’s brilliant “wine boss”, Beth Brickenden, fresh from her starring role on Amazon Prime’s new series The Three Drinkers in Ireland, will be proffering equally inspired pairings for each of the courses on both occasions.
The Denney/Dabbous event in May will be priced at £100 per head and Denney/Ward’s in July at £140 per head, with an optional wine pairing at £50 per head.
These supper clubs promise to be truly unforgettable experiences, with the opportunity to taste cuisine by some of the UK’s most successful chefs.
