Say ‘celebrity chef’ and most likely chirpy chappies, effing blonde blokes and Delia rallying for her football team spring to mind. But were you in Mexico, there’s one powerhouse who rules both the airwaves and the kitchen, Martha Ortiz, the owner of one of the best restaurants in South America…
Celebrated Mexican chef Martha Ortiz has brought her delicious brand of cooking to London's InterContinental Hotel on One Park Lane in Mayfair. Known for her Dulce Patria restaurant in Mexico City, the chef has brought an authentic flavour of her home country to the UK.
Restaurant Ella Canta serves a tasting menu with seven types of 'mole' (sauces), as well as having a la carte dishes such as vampire ceviche with mango and sangrita, seafood and lobster pozole, and crispy pork with chiltomate sauce and pickled red onion. The venue also has a stand-alone bar which will serve mezcals and tequilas along with having its own small plates menu.
