To celebrate Salon’s 5th birthday, Chef Founder Nicholas Balfe welcomes five of London’s hottest chefs and closest friends to their Brixton kitchen to create a one-off celebratory feast on Sunday 28th January. The stellar line-up sees Lee Tiernan from Black Axe Mangal, Josh Katz of Berber & Q, John Chantarasak from som saa, Silo’s Dougie McMaster, and pudding queen, Rav Gill from Llewelyns, each serving up a course in homage to Salon’s seasonal cooking, whilst putting their signature spin on it.
On arrival, award-winning bartender, Mr Lyan will be on the shaker, kicking off proceedings with a celebratory cocktail of ‘Salon 75’ made with Colombo gin, red ‘British citrus’, butter and Crémant, garnished with a slice of fresh fennel. Resident Chef Nicholas Balfe then takes to the pass with snacks of January king cabbage taco with beef short rib, buttermilk & kraut; a celeriac skewer with blood orange & fermented chilli dip, and pheasant popcorn with sea buckthorn ketchup. Next, Lee Tiernan steps up to the plate with sweet and savoury doughnuts, flavoured with Szechuan spices, followed by John Chantarasak of som saa who will be dishing up crispy fermented pork belly, granny smith and sour leaf salad with sea buckthorn and orange chilli dressing. Douglas McMaster will be preparing one of his signature plant-based dishes, followed by Josh Katz’s barbecue mallard with smoked carrot, orange and pistachio. Last but by no means least, Rav has created a pre-dessert of lemongrass and rhubarb and for that extra sugar injection, a chocolate and chestnut choux bun.
To see that no one goes thirsty, Matt Bushnell and Mark Gurney, co-directors of Salon, will be at hand to recommend interesting wines by the bottle including delicious volcanic whites from Tenerife and vibrant reds from Jura. For those who fancy a cocktail or two, guests can choose from their Negroni triptych or a Scot’s Pine infused martini, and other spirit based concoctions.
Nicholas says, “Five years feels like such a huge milestone. So much has changed at Salon in that time, let alone the restaurant scene as a whole. The fifth birthday marks an occasion where we can all celebrate the work we’ve put in, and give thanks to everyone – guests, colleagues, suppliers, peers and our friends and family, who’ve helped make it happen. What better way to do so than by inviting some of my talented chef friends for a big party at our place. We can’t wait!”
