june 2022

This month the ever imaginative Gabriel Waterhouse gives us three plates of seasonal ingenuity to taste. With summer firmly in mind, Isle of Wight tomatoes, strawberries, basil & fresh Puglian burrata are perfectly attuned for warm evenings and grazing.

A smooth and rich Comte fondue can only be shared, and drizzled over leeks roasted with apple syrup, is both decadent and fun in equal measure. Catching the end of white asparagus season, these spears are served with a rose petal and fennel dressing and is as aromatic as it is piquant.

Three plates. One table. Two friends. These dishes are designed for the intimate and communal, shared experience of dining

Gabriel will tell you about his creation, below:

Wild Radish · Gabriel Waterhouse - Whole Roast Leeks
this month's playlist

**Next Gen Soul**

Chopped up samples, nostalgia through a palpably different lens and lyrics that afford a vertical glimpse through a formative life of lockdowns, global insecurity and a new generation finding its feet.

Sonically today’s young producers are seemingly as likely to be influenced by James Blake as Erykah Badu, Ashanti or Ray Charles. In fact one core, defining feature of these musicians, is that rather than directly rebel against what has come before, they allow multiple influences to wash through their music at once; creating a rich tapestry of sounds and, notably, vibes.
