April 7, 2014 chateaumarmot



After starting the year with our sell out Market Kitchen in London attended by over 250 happy customers and journalists from The Evening Standard, Grazia, The Independent we’re taking a trip to the seaside.

This dinner marks the first of a series that we’re really excited about, taking place throughout the rest of 2014 across London and the UK under the banner of Supernature. Supernature is a celebration of nature, showcased through amazing ingredients set against the art and science of preparing them in innovative, exciting ways. Working at the edges of Chateau Marmot’s established Modern British template each dinner will identify one element of the Supernature spectrum, like a foodie periodic table, and explode it in a riot of colours, tastes and textures across a six course tasting menu. For Brighton naturally that element is The Sea, element name Se, as beautifully illustrated on the poster by Brighton based artist Kate Forrester. Each course will showcase a different aspect of the sea, seashore and everything good to eat contained within.

Overseen by executive chef Ramael Scully from Ottolenghi and Nopi, the menu for Brighton is being created by Karl Doering and Ben Harrington, two of London’s most exciting new chefs. Karl has cooked previously for Claridges and St John, currently residing at Mayfields in East London, where his food was described by The Guardian’s Jay Rayner as, “a brilliant display of intelligent cooking”. 

Ben has worked for several under Gordon Ramsey, most
recently as one of the senior chefs at Union St Cafe. He’s currently part of the launch crew for the restaurant at the prestigious Mondrian London, opening summer 2014.

Every bit as much attention goes in to the drinks list, with fairly priced matched wine pairings available (From £25), showcasing interesting and hard to find wines from independent suppliers as well as the Chateau’s own craft beers, cocktails and more. These have been created with the help of the Marmot’s sommelier, ex-Decanter editor Rosalind Cooper. There will be also be coffee from Volcano, Tea from Jing, and great soft drinks. The famous cheese cart will also make an appearance, packed with incredible cheeses from London and beyond as well as the Chateau M signature hedgerow jams, jellies and other good things.

The events will also showcase the work of local artists and maybe even a musician or two if we can steal them away from The Great Escape, with a schedule announced nearer the time on Facebook and Twitter.

Six course tasting menu dinner, £47
