Just moments away from Royal Hospital Chelsea where the show is hosted, Tom's Kitchen Chelsea will be serving a floral inspirted menu showcasing the best British seasonal ingredients. Tom's dishes also make superb use of the spring's finest flowers.
On the menu will be crab marinated in basil mayonnaise, cucumber, and nasturtium leaf; cod with apricot rose and saffron and a stunning courgette and pistachio risotto with courgette flowers. Diners can finish their meal with a vibrant dessert of rose-poached cherries, elderflower served with lavender panna cotta (pictured above).
If you'd like a wonderful drink to round off your experience try Toms’ Garden Cocktail. Presented in a charming porcelain planter for two to share this gin-based cocktail features hibiscus syrup, lemon juice and a dash of violet syrup.
Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester has re-launched its classic lunch hour menu to celebrate the Chelsea Flower Show.
The dishes pair traditional French delicacies with seasonal ingredients inspired by the show. The menu features delicate Vegetable Tarte in Bloom; a classic French COOKPOT of Hereford Snails marinated in wild mushroom and parsley butter; Lemon sole with a side of spring garden; and a dessert of Pistachio and Wild Strawberry field.
All dishes are perfect examples of Ducasse’s passion for cooking with the freshest seasonal ingredients and offer diners a great opportunity to celebrate the start of summer.
The set menu is served Tuesday to Friday and is extremely well priced at £55 for 3 courses, 2 glasses of wine, half a bottle of mineral water and coffee or tea.
Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester have very kindly shared the recipe for the strawberry dessert for you to create at home.
