For four months from the 4 November 2014, Michelin star chef Tom Aikens will be gracing Harrods' Food Hall as their Chef of the Season. Offering seasonal dishes-to-go, Chef Aikens will be staying true to his comfort food style in his own dedicated area within the traiteur counter.
Until 2 January 2015 classic Christmas dishes will be up for grabs with the likes of roast turkey breast and trimmings, and a venison casserole with cranberry and root vegetable mash. There will also be a variety of canapés for those who want a Michelin-starred quick fix for entertaining over the Christmas period, with selections like beetroot-cured salmon, seven-hour lamb croquettes, and a sweet chocolate hot pot.
After the Christmas period, Tom will offer winter warmers until the end of February, with starters, mains and puddings, such as spicy crab cakes, braised beef cheeks, and apple and Calvados tart with maple syrup ice-cream.
