DUKES LONDON is delighted to announce that its much-loved restaurant, GBR (Great British Restaurant), will host a one-night-only dinner on 25th February 2020, 18:30, a unique collaboration between GBR’s Chef Nigel Mendham and Chef Jon Parry of The Mash Inn.

The Chefs will showcase their combined passion for respecting the best possible ingredients, and wasting nothing. Together, they have designed a one off six-course menu using ingredients as locally-sourced as possible and with careful consideration for minimising waste – from breadcrumbs to scallop roes and celeriac leaves. Food waste is becoming an increasing concern globally; it is reported that roughly one third of all food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted.

‘Respect Everything, Waste Nothing’ is priced at £95.00 per person, inclusive of a welcome drink, a wine pairing selection and VAT.

Chef Jon Parry prides himself on his exclusive use of only the finest ingredients, from fresh fruit, herbs and vegetables to just-sourced game, seafood and meat. Jon and his team cook on an open wood fire only with ingredients available from the market or the garden that day. The Mash Inn is in Radnage, Buckinghamshire – less than an hour’s drive from London, and Parry’s cooking has been acclaimed as uncomplicated food in one sense – no Heston-style snail porridge – but brilliant in its simplicity, and imaginative in its use of foraged and British ingredients.

At GBR Chef Nigel Mendham, makes use of the finest locally sourced ingredients to create hearty British dishes with a twist. Since being appointed as Executive Head Chef at GBR in 2011, he has made his mark on the competitive London dining scene with simple, elegant food prepared with traditional technique… the result is refined and precise. Making modern British food meticulously prepared from the very best ingredients… balancing classic flavours and contemporary flair. Great British Chefs.
