PipsDish Pop Up
@ The Marquess Tavern, 32 Canonbury St, Islington, London N1 2TB
14 September – 1 October Weds, Thurs, Fri, Sat @8pm
As I progress my culinary adventures, learning about new ingredients and cooking for new audiences from Edinburgh to Brussels and Barcelona to London, I’m running a pop-up London restaurant, taking over The Marquess Tavern kitchen for 3 weeks and cooking up a daily dinner menu of seasonal dishes.
Many different pop up restaurants london wide work on different principles. With PipsDish it’s like this. There is only one sitting at 8pm every evening and like my other pop up restaurants in london, you can book individual tables for your party. This time, I’m working in a professional kitchen, where I’ll be doing the preparation. But on the night, you will be served from a central table, where you can see your dishes being put together, with the usual theatre!
My philosophy is ‘Cooking without Recipes’, which is also the title of my forthcoming book of which Simon Callow, writes “this is the first day of the rest of your life in the kitchen”.
There are no planned menus at PipsDish, I buy fresh ingredients and creates a new menu everyday with ingredients from the best markets in London and cook a range of produce and dishes and will always accommodate your needs. Whatever, I hope this will be one of the pop up restaurants London 2011, you’ll remember.
From Wednesday to Saturday 14 September to 1 October, you can book a table at PipsDish.
3-course dinner £25
We’re happy to take large bookings or birthday parties. If you are booking as a big party, you can speak to Philip in advance about what you’d like to eat.
Some reviews of PipsDish:
“this is a triumph not just of culinary skill but hospitality too.. infinite riches…highly original menu, professionally executed but with a friendly, home-cooked flourish”
“A total triumph. fabulous food and wine and hospitality…”
” I’m reminded of one of my grandfathers favourite sayings: “do you live to eat , or do you eat to live” and thanks to amazing food experiences, such as PipsDish, I know absolutely where I am blessed to sit.”
“Flavour lies behind everything Pip does – yes, shopping, menus, cooking – but also the mix of people he attracts to his pop-up restaurants. A genuine feast. And a bright memory.”
