On Tuesday 5th July, James was joined in the kitchen by specialist grower and “King of Crops” Ken Holland. The evening was an organic tasting journey of vibrantly coloured vegetables and intense flavours, resulting in a 12 course sought-after tasting menu.

Ken provides only a very few selected restaurants in the UK with his fresh and unusual crops, with Kitchen Table only one of two Michelin starred restaurants in London, that North Country Organic supplies to.

Here are a few snaps from the evening that highlights the amazing world of veg and all that comes with it.

James and Sandia are very honored to invite some trans-Atlantic friends over from NYC this August for Kitchen Table guests to sample the very best in American fine dining.

On Tuesday 23rd August and Wednesday 24th August, Chef James Knappett and Chef Jonathan Benno and his celebrated Pastry Chef, Richard Capizzi from Lincoln Ristorante in New York will be creating a Michelin starred tasting menu that even mentor, Thomas Keller would not want to miss out on this August.

Described by Vice as “One of New York’s most important fine dining players and an established force in American cuisine in his own right”. Benno is currently Head Chef of the Lincoln Ristorante, a modern Italian restaurant in the heart of the Lincoln Centre, that sources the best local ingredients and prepares them with authentic Italian methods and spirit. His career has spanned two decades and the width of the USA. Having trained under the guidance of John Farnsworth and at the renowned Culinary Institute of America, before embarking on this solo project in 2010, Benno worked with Thomas Keller at The French Laundry in Napa Valley and at the legendary Per Se in New York.

Benno will also be bringing his distinguished Pastry Chef, Richard Capizzi over to join in all the fun. Capizzi learnt his trade as a pastry chef at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. He has since gone on to work with world renowned chefs including Thomas Keller, Jean Louis Palladin and Pascal Brunstein with a career covering the US and France before joining Jonathan Benno at Per Se and later Lincoln Ristorante .In 2003 Capizzi won US Pastry Chef of the Year.

The team at Kitchen Table are incredibly excited to bring the old Per Se gang back together, for two nights only at Kitchen Table.

Both evenings will consist of one sitting at 7:00pm, tickets are priced at £150 per person for 12 courses, beverage and service not included. Regretfully, during our special events, we are not able to accommodate any dietary requirements.

On Tuesday 5th July join us for an intimate evening where James Knappett and Ken Holland from North Country Organic will be creating a unique vegetarian tasting menu. Described as the “King of Crops” the evening will be an organic tasting journey of vibrantly coloured vegetables and intense flavours.

Ken Holland is a specialist grower from Northumberland, UK. He grows unique and lesser known foods for chefs and grows over 80 varieties of vegetables in his walled garden, situated on a 300-year-old property in Little Harle.

Ken and his wife Tracy Holland have been running the family vegetable business for over 10 years, making his name with his super-fresh organic vegetables, in particular his weird and wonderful heritage varieties, and more recently the micro living baby vegetables. Ken provides only a very few selected restaurants in the UK, including Michelin-star restaurants such as, Simon Rogan’s L’Enclume in Cartmel, Cumbria, Tom Kitchin of The Kitchin in Edinburgh and of course our very own Kitchen Table with fresh and unusual crops – With a waiting list of about 40 restaurants rooting for his sought-after vegetables, Ken is somewhat of a legend, a true local food hero.

The evening will consist of one sitting at 7:00pm, tickets are priced at £125 per person for 12 courses, beverage and service not included. Regretfully, during our special events, we are not able to accommodate any dietary requirements.

Shaun Searley

Shaun Headshot

On Wednesday 1st June Shaun Searley of Quality Chop House fame is bringing his inventive, farm to table cuisine to Kitchen Table –  BUT expect the unexpected with Shaun’s refined take on nose to tail eating, dayboat fish and seasonal vegetables transformed into a Kitchen Table tasting format.

Lauded as one of the UK’s upcoming chefs, and described by The Top 50 2016 for his take on mince toast “ like no mince you’ve had before, the most insanely meaty mince imaginable”, we’re incredibly excited for Shaun to introduce his off-piste tasting menu for one night only at Kitchen Table.

Shaun describes the food he serves at Quality Chop House as being “traditionally creative” with his produce driven menus, focusing on British, locally-sourced and sustained food, allowing the excellent meat, seafood and vegetables to shine at their seasonal best.

“I enjoy using unusual ingredients such as monkfish liver or cod chitterlings, along with different animal fats. Some examples being ‘beef fat brioche’, ‘langoustine hollandaise’ and ‘chicken butter’, because we don’t want to see anything go in the bin. We respect and use everything possible to maximise the use of all our products.”

The evening will consist of one sitting at 7:00pm, tickets are priced at £95 per person for 12 courses with an optional £38 for 3 additional supplement courses, beverage and service not included. Regretfully, during our special events, we are not able to accommodate any dietary requirements.
