RestArt Chef Lab November, 15, 2019
Chef’s Lab lets you watch famous chefs in their natural habitat – namely, in action! RestArt 2019 has set two sessions for you – with David Carter, who left Gordon Ramsey restaurant network to roast meat at his own place in London. And Cristina Bowerman, who holds a Michelin star and a title of Best Female Chef Europe 2018, and manages the kitchens of several wonderful restaurants in Rome.
David Carter is a top barbeque chef. He quit a managerial position at Gordon Ramsey’s restaurant network, went to the USA to learn how to grill meat and came back to London, where he opened Smokestak, an affordable meat restaurant. Two years ago it received a nod from Michelin Bib Gourmand – the “younger brother” of the Michelin guide that compliments small establishments. In November 2019 David is going to open his new restaurant Manteca – again, all about meat. At Chef’s Lab David’s menu is going to look like this:
1. Charred pork belly with cucumber pickle
2. Smoked pastrami, mustard and dill
3. Ox cheek on toast, bone marrow, beef dripping gravy
4. Coal roasted aubergine, red miso butter, toasted cashews
Cristina Bowerman is one of the few ladies-chefs with a Michelin star. It took her a long way to become the chef of Glass Hostaria, Giulietta and Romeo Chef & Baker in Rome. Cristina left Italy for the USA, where she worked at a coffee-shop, then studied law and worked as a graphic designer, and only then mastered culinary arts. She came back to Italy and presented her fresh approach to traditional Roman cuisine at Glass Hostaria – and got the Michelin star in 2010. At Chef’s Lab Cristina will make:
1. Risotto with cauliflower, turmeric and pomegranate molasses
2. “Pasta mista” with miso and seaweed
3. Beef fillet tartare, smoked sardine, celery, nashi pear and dried mullet roe
4. Daikon ravioli stuffed with goat cheese, almond milk and raspberry
5. Condensed milk, espresso jelly and Baileys
Being at Chef’s Lab is somewhat like going to a séance: you witness the magic, you feel it and get inspired by it. Watching chefs work is a true pleasure not only for other chefs. It’s a show where making each dish becomes a performance, accompanied by an overwhelming story, with theory and techniques intertwining with the chef’s unique experience and insights.
