Hunter-gathering went out of fashion even before Rod Stewart stopped doing it, but that's not stopping The Wild Food Kitchen: a new supperclub serving almost exclusively "wild and foraged" sustenance whose debut event will take place over four days in a huge, open space within the Arthaus in Hackney, where local plants will certainly be, ahem, green.
Each shindig will see a five-course menu rustled up by a Michelin-trained chef, with all the ingredients even now being gathered (in some cases against their will) by a professional forager in Kent, and a game keeper in Northamptonshire.
Those two gentlemen's hard work goes into dishes like nettle gazpacho w/ chorizo oil, venison bourguignon, confit rabbit leg & stuffed loin wrapped in pancetta w/ apple mashed pots & cider gravy, and mushroom brioche & butter pudding covered in whiskey jus, for a little sauce in your sauce.
Addlement-wise, they're happy for you to BYO, or they'll furnish you with 'tails or menu-matching wines from an entire caravan they've "smashed in" and turned into a bar. Music is seen to by "London's best buskers", including a beatboxing flutist, a Spanish guitarist, and a Czech saxophonist, all sure to have you Foot Loose & Fancy Free.
