A Cookbook Dinner
at The Marksman
Wednesday, Feb 23rd, 8pm
Chefs Jon Rotheram and Tom Harris, both beloved St. John alumni, are holding a new monthly series of Cookbook Dinners at their critically acclaimed Marksman Pub. And the first will feature Fergus! The principle is as follows: a guest chef chooses their favourite book, from which Tom, Jon and the chef will cook on the night.
Fergus' choice is Ma Gastronomie by Fernand Point. Very much a man after Fergus’ heart, M. Point reportedly shared a magnum of champagne with his barber every morning. The book is an extraordinary one compiled from the extensive annotations and ramblings from his hand written notes. Fergus has never cooked from the recipes before; he’s taking the opportunity that Tom and Jon have presented to go way outside of his usual repertoire. As he puts it himself,
“a flourish, a moment of way-hay”
The menu features Oeufs à la Gelée, Crème de Volaille Truffé, Choucroute d’Ammerschwihr, Crêpes Suzette, Marjolaine… and Trevor is putting together the French wine pairings, naturally! Both Trevor and Fergus will be on hand with Jon and Tom to guide you through the evening.
£75 pp for four courses with wine.
