Her culinary creations have been described as “Caribbean royalty on a plate” by none other than renowned Michelin-starred chef Marcus Wareing, can you afford to miss out on Michelle Trusselle’s upcoming intimate series of Supper Clubs and Chefs Tables?
Michelle, a semi-finalist on BBC’s MasterChef: The Professionals 2018, is adding another string to her bow with the launch of Myristica, her Saturday night Supper Clubs and intimate Chefs Tables (for just four people) in Central or West London and the City.
The born and bred Londoner has spent more than a decade honing her skills as a chef, having worked at some of the most exclusive restaurants in London, including The Savoy and Claridges. However, with her new venture, Myristica, she will embrace her love for the homely and soul-satisfying food of the Caribbean which she grew up with at home in London.
Highlighting the authenticity of her Caribbean fine dining aspirations even further is the name Myristica, which is the Latin name for the trees which produce nutmeg & mace, native to Grenada the isle of spice from where Michelle’s heritage stems.
Promo for her Supper Clubs promises a unique dining experience, where the Caribbean meets fine dining, delivering stunning dishes including a butternut squash custard sphere with ginger; crab and mace crumpets with brown crab butter; textures of carrot with allspice and thyme; pan roasted cannon of lamb with curry emulsion, puffed potato and ginger and citrus salt; and baked nutmeg and brown sugar cheesecake with red wine and clove jelly.
The five-course tasting menu plus canapes and petit fours costs between £80 to £95 per person including a wine pairing.
Michelle says: “We aim to elevate the ingredients grown from the fertile Caribbean soil and create new exciting dishes. When it comes to the well-known dishes of the islands, we refine them, to push the boundaries of tradition, and yet we keep true to the core flavours that make these dishes what they are.”
Remaining dates for the upcoming Myristica Supper Clubs and Chefs Tables are 23 March, 27 April and 11 May 2019.
