Hix comes to Clerkenwell Design Week with a foodies and wine lovers’ extravaganza
Celebrated chef Mark Hix’s various London restaurants have become some of the hottest places to dine in the capital since he launched his first establishment, Hix Oyster & Chop House in Smithfield in 2008. His various venues offer a wide choice of gastro delights for foodies, complemented by an extensive selection of fine wine.
With Clerkenwell Design Week kicking off this month (20-22 May 2014), Hix has teamed up wine cellar curators The Perfect Cellar to create a special culinary and wine experience at The Clerkenwell Collection, just a stone’s throw from his Smithfield eaterie.
Each tasting session features three dishes created by Hix served alongside a select wine to complement the flavours. As well as the chance to sample the delicious dishes, there will also be tasting notes and discussion. Example dishes include Wye Valley Asparagus with Chervil Mayonnaise, De Beauvoir Smoked Salmon ‘Hix cure’ with Corrigan’s Soda Bread, Roast Glenarm Estate Sirloin Steak with Bobby Beans and Julian Temperley’s Cider Brandy and Venezuelan Black Truffles.
Each session costs just £15 and lasts 45 minutes. All those who participate will also receive a 25% discount voucher (valid until the end of May 2014) off their food bill at Hix Oyster & Chop House. Sessions take place daily during Clerkenwell Design Week, at 12pm, 2pm, 3.30pm and 5pm.
- The pairings are only available during Clerkenwell Design Week (20-22 May 2014) at The Clerkenwell Collection, 155 Farringdon Road, EC1R 3AD. Nearest tube: Farringdon. Bookings must be done in advance. For more information and bookings, visit The Collection website.
