Last week saw the end of another very succesful week for Cleaner Products and to show my appreciation I treated my office team to a night out at The Last Days of Shoreditch, this amazing venue has the lot and is great experience, my good friend Chef Ben Spalding has the mezzanine overlooking the venue and spoilt us with his off the wall creations.
Chef Ben Spalding - who has trained at some of the world's finest Michelin-starred restaurants - has brought his new culinary concept Small Plates Sessions to the east end stamping ground. Expect mouth-watering dishes featuring the likes of Gressingham duck breast cooked in a chocolate salt crust, black cod ceviche with iced Kaffir lime and the outrageously moreish cookie dough milkshake in a shovel... mmm.
Black Salmon Ceviche, iced kaffir lime, full fat crème fraiche & pumpkin seeds (chilled)
White crab caught from Devon yesterday, brown crab mayo, grapes, chilli, lettuce & sticky citrus honey (chilled)
Cured & lightly blowtorched Cornish Mackerel, nutella, mango, marmite cream cheese & grapefruit zest (Room temperature)
Crispy Piggy! Skin, Korean BBQ & strawberry cream, meadowsweet flowers
‘The Chicken Skin Sandwich’ (Room temperature)
‘Duck on a Brick’ – rich & creamy parfait, crispy duck, punk drunk jerk sauce & orange (chilled)
Caramelised & glazed Lamb belly, apricot crème fraiche, super sour pomegranate, ras el hanout lentils & smoking spruce (hot)
Mr Mung – Umami creamed mung beans, aromatic tom yum, fried hotdog onions (hot)
Spicy cheesy skin on fries – Holy Fuck sauce, Montgomery Jack cheese (HOT!)
Teriyaki broccoli – white chocolate & apricot jam (warm)
Sweet ripe peaches – caramelised Buttermilk & frozen pineapple (ice cold)
