The gloves are off and the knives are out as a stable of talented young London chefs go head-to-head for three rounds of no-holds-barred culinary one-upmanship at Tom Conran’s eponymous Notting Hill hangout, Tom’s Deli.
Swapping blood, sweat, tears and toil for salted butter and olive oil, Shuttlecock Inc. - the team behind Mile High and The Great Indian Peninsula Railway - will transform this West London favourite into an amphitheatre of gastronomic guile and ingenuity.
The rules are simple. Every Wednesday to Saturday for the month of November, two guest chefs will battle it out to see who’s King of the Rings.
Starring in this talented line up of culinary Jake La Mottas will be Shuttlecock Inc.’s ex-Moro prize fighter, Ollie Templeton and his talented team of scrappers, plucked from some of London’s top restaurants (Bocca di Lupo, Trullo, St John, Pétrus) for a shot at the title.
Inspired by the flavours of Italy and using the same raw ingredients bought from the market that morning (no two days will be the same), the two challengers will create their own three-course menu for the evening’s diners, with each course going to a vote when the plates are cleared. Best of three: primo, secondo and dolce.
Hosted by a larger than life MC – “let’s get rrready to rrrumble” – diners can look forward to an evening of high jinx and knockout food. The winner soaks up the applause, the loser washes up the pots and pans.
Your £55 ticket gets you six dishes (a starter, main and pudding from each of the evening’s two chefs), a DISARONNO sour on arrival and a digestivo once the dust has settled. There will be a vegetarian option, but due to the 'live' nature of the event we will sadly not be able to offer 3 small dishes from each chef, but instead a normal size starter, main and pudding. we cannot cater for any other allergies.
