On Friday 18th November Farmopolis Café will launch Floating Table, an incredible new series of communal feasts set in the unique floating garden on the Jetty at Greenwich Peninsula.
Santiago-born chef, Marcelo Henriquez, will kick-off the floating table series with a Chilean inspired menu. He was inspired to create ONA in order to introduce Chilean food to the British table, but with a distinctive modern slant. After fifteen years of living and working in France, Italy and Spain, as well as stints in LA and Berlin, Marcelo has developed a lively and deceptively simple aesthetic. Inspiriting by his homeland and the roots of Mediterranean cultures, he is focused on freshness and vibrancy to deliver his inspiring plates.
ONA is named after the Ona indigenous people of the Tierra del Fuego (Land of Fire) islands in the Patagonia region of Southern Chile. A deeply spiritual, nomadic people, dependent upon hunting and gathering, who respected their food from source to plate. ONA aims to celebrate their strength, cultural identity and reflect their striking tribal aesthetic.
Floating Table will take place from November to January. Each chef will create a stunning sharing feast served on long communal tables and surrounded by thousands of plants and trees rehomed from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show earlier this year. With the iconic Thames riverside as a backdrop and space limited to 60 diners, Floating Table promises to be one of the best dining experiences of the festive season in London.
Helping all Floating Table chefs will be trainee chefs from Café from Crisis, a social training enterprise.
