Salt Chuck Presents Loaves and Fishes


12 Wednesday 12th November 2014

Why should the pop-up dining experience descend into lazy food, paper plates and paltry portions? Just because it lacks permanence, doesn't mean it should lack quality. Luckily, brother/sister duo Jack and Anna Stevens-Smith think the same, and are offering a solution to the sorry state of pop-ups in London with their new endeavour Salt Chuck.

A lot of pop-up dining is average, served on a bun off Brick Lane with a side of Rokit rip-off and a £4 Red Stripe. Salt Chuck is different.

Their first showcase of wintry flavours comes in the form of 'Loaves and Fishes', hosted at the Old Tram Depot in Clapton from the 11th-13th December. The venue was once a Victorian horse-drawn tram depot turned local business hub. But as with most historic buildings in London, it's being knocked down to make way for luxury flats.

To say celebrate its final days, 'Loaves and Fish'  is one of many events happening there over the next year before the bulldozers come in. Mayfield's sous-chef Jack is cooking up something good in the form of a four course meal and a beer from the guys at Clapton Craft (or whatever your heart desires to lubricate your meal, they've got lots on offer), made with the freshest of fish. 

The Menu: 

Bread, pickles & sauce

Duck ham & horseradish

Bay leaf cured sea trout, samphire, pomegranate & ricotta

Mackerel, ricepaddy herb, chilli & soy cured yolk 

Rosemary smoked mussels, dashi broth 

Shortbread, mascarpone & bergamot

All of this can be yours for a mere £30, but booking is essential. Get your tickets here:
