On November 8th, two of the UK’s most exciting chefs, Gareth Ward of Michelin starred Ynyshir in Wales and the much-celebrated Theo Clench of Akoko in Fitzrovia, are coming together to create a totally unique, once in a lifetime 15 course menu for one night only at Akoko.
Owned by Aji Akokomi, the food at Akoko is an ode to beautifully crafted West African flavours and cooking techniques focussing on fire, spice and umami, with Chef Theo using the very best British and West African ingredients to create stunning and constantly surprising dishes full of texture, flavour and warmth. With a Michelin Star and 5 AA Rosettes, Gareth Ward of Ynyshir has become famed and accoladed for his wholly unique culinary creations around ageing, pickling, fermenting and foraging with a Japanese-meets-Welsh flavour whilst still celebrating the British and Welsh natural larder. Both chefs share an ethos for innovation, flavour and artful intricacy – making the most out of beautiful ingredients using ancient and modern cooking techniques to create showstopping dishes and flavours.
This four hands dinner is a unique opportunity to experience the food of these two sensational chefs, all under one roof, in a truly beautiful setting in central London.
