R and I always believe in bringing you, the guest, as close to the kitchen as possible (without having to do any of the cooking of course!). Our Modern Dining ethos is built on breaking down the barriers between cooking, serving and eating; thus you will often find one of us in the dining room serving food or talking to you lovely guests. Anyway we can connect with those that support us, with what we do, is one of the most rewarding parts of running Smoke & Salt. With that in mind we have a little teaser video for you to enjoy.
It's without a doubt pie season so why not get out your summer fruits and bake a pie. Only a few more weeks left in summer to do so!
Make sure you check out our previous post with all the full recipes.
This has been one of those headers that we’ve had in the back of our minds for a while now and we always seem to find a way to bump it along the chain. Finally, I’m pulling on my flak vest (I can only assume there will be massive out-cry here!) and try to explain what it is that ACTUALLY creates something from nothing by turning the mundane in nature to insane through nurture…
Last weekend, R. and I were invited to celebrate 1 year of Canele production from the guys over at Babelle. If you follow us of Twitter or Instagram, you'll know how much we enjoy those delicious, crispy bundles of joy. If not, check out the video above to see a sneak-peek, behind the scenes look at canelé construction.
These biscuits (I hope you've watched the video for the correct pronunciation) are a Scandinavian treat in the winter time. Thin, crisp and full of flavour, they pair well with a mug of hot chocolate or coffee, but watch out, you may end up eating more of them than you intended!...
Sometimes we forget how spoiled for choice we can be when it comes to weekend plans and when we’re not behind the stoves in the kitchen getting ready for a dinner service we seem to find ourselves twiddling thumbs as to what to do. 2 weeks ago I found myself back on Teatime in Wonderland, a blog run by our favourite canelé queen Chocoralie, of course I took here up on her suggestion of a few beers as part of the London Brewery tours, I mean, how treacherous can the Bermondsey Mile be?!...
You know that feeling of being so much more full than at any time during the year at Christmas? Imagine being able to train for that feeling (or should I say “feeding”!) 4 weeks prior, at Thanksgiving. A few days ago we shared some of our recipes and planning ideas and now that the day itself has happened we've definitely got that over-filled feeling...
We were back on the road again this week, this time in Shoreditch, with another pop-up. We were invited to be a part of a new supper club series hosted at Barber & Parlour, a venue that is part of the very impressive Soho House Group. The space has a particularly "Shoreditch" flare to it, but presented as a mature space for guests to grab a coffee, catch a movie in their very own basement-cinema, drink eat and generally chill-out...
Welcome to our latest Smoke & Salt video diaries, this week we thought we'd give you a break from Pigs Heads and Pumpkins, with Halloween being right round the corner. Although if you still haven't made plans you are more than welcome to join us for a truly memorable banquet! R has put together a great video showing the step by step process of on of our best selling dishes throughout our residency...
