Long gone are the days of chefs guarding their culinary secrets with their lives. We’re living in the age of gastronomic collaborations, where the country’s top cooks are happy to team up and create beautiful food together. This swapping of ideas, ingredients and techniques has helped give birth to new dishes, restaurant concepts and events – one of which is Alyn Williams’ CHEFStock.
This four-night mini-festival sees Michelin-starred chefs from all over Europe come to Alyn Williams at The Westbury in Mayfair to create a series of one-off tasting menus every Tuesday throughout April. Taking part are Nigel Haworth of Northcote, Marc Wilkinson of Fraiche, Sasu Laukkonen from Helsinki and Riccardo Camanini of Italy’s Lido 84. We caught up with Alyn to see what it’s like working with new chefs.
