Now in it's third year, Chef Alyn Williams of Mayfair restaurant Alyn Williams at The Westbury, will create culinary magic by combining the individual talents of each guest chef as part of the CHEFstock collaborative dining event, 2016.
Together, Alyn and his guest chef for each evening will produce one unique tasting menu every Tuesday throughout the month of April. Following the success of previous CHEFstock events, the 2016 line-up will involve a host of influential talent from both the UK and abroad. From the UK’s home-grown talent, Fraiche’s Marc Wilkinson and Nigel Hayworth from the Northcote in Lancashire, to Sasu Laukkonen from Helsinki, Finland and Riccardo Camanini from Ristaurante Lido 84, the never-before-seen collective promises rare London appearances from chefs collectively boasting four Michelin stars, and countless national and international accolades.
Arrive to a welcome Champagne reception and canapés created by both chefs, then take a seat in the chic rosewood-accented dining room and savour each of the crafted eight courses from the one-off collaborative tasting menu – four courses from each chef, with a few surprises along the way!
