Where did the time go? Obviously, we never intended to leave it so long between blog posts. Things just ran away with us, as we completed the changeover to simply allium, and shifted up a gear with our allium event catering service. And then there was the behind-the-scenes work developing our previous mentioned tasting room project.
At long last, we’re just about ready for the next chapter in the allium food story. The bespoke kitchen is almost complete, chairs and tables are on their way, and the final licks of paint are being applied. the tasting room opens for business on Friday, August 31st. A reservations-only private room at allium’s Fairford HQ, it will serve 12-courses menus with accompanying wines for just £80.
While simply allium will continue to serve up our own brand of British brasserie favourites, the tasting room will more closely reflect the work we’ve been doing in the allium test kitchen over the last couple of years. Expect plates that takes inspiration from nature, our culture and our heritage. Expect jiggery pokery with dry ice and liquid nitrogen. Expect ingredients with a fine pedigree. But most of all expect a sense of fun, a sense of theatre, and a celebration of food. With dishes prepared up close and personal from an open kitchen, the tasting room will hopefully give our customers dinner and a show.
