For my latest pop-up I partnered with fellow Parisian Olivier at Zinc in Harrogate. Thursday 1 March saw 22 hungry guests gather at the independently run café and wine bar on John Street.
As part of Zinc’s regular bistro evenings offering a taste of cuisines from around the world, I was invited to create a six-course menu including three canapés and a trio of desserts. Guests could buy wine provided by Zinc separately.
The venue is intimate, and the event proved a hit with diners with empty plates all round. Olivier and I will be offering another pop-up on Thursday 5 April, for more information head over to my Facebook page. You can see the menu that was on offer below.
