Adam Rawson and the Croatian National Tourist Board are hosting a one-night-only pop up experience for the public to enjoy the same eight courses that I got to experience on the 7th of September. This once in a lifetime event will take place on the 17th September 2016 from 6:30pm at The Table Café. Entrance costs £38.50 and for 8 courses that’s an absolute bargain.
The eight courses consisted of Bakalar, lettuce & celery, Seabass, Lavender & Black Rice, Scrambled Egg & Asparagus, Porcini & Truffle Fuzi, Cuttlefish serves up with Black Risotto, Braised Ox Njoki, Dark Chocolate & Olive Oil Cake and Apple Fritule & Goats Curd.
Making my way through eight courses, each accompanied by gorgeous Croatian wine was hard work and by the two dessert courses I was definitely struggling. With the overly rich Chocolate and Olive Oil Cake, I could only manage half of this and I didn’t even eat the finale dessert course. This was primarily because these were basically cinnamon donuts and cinnamon is not my friend.
Favourite courses of the evening were definitely the Porcini & Truffle Fuzi and the Scrambled Egg & Asparagus. I would have been happy to eat larger portions of these for sure, they were delicious.
Croatian food is unusual and definitely not something you’d experience elsewhere in London. So for a chance to try some food that will make you book a trip to Croatia as soon as you leave, make sure you book your seat now. Adam Rawson started cooking at 15 after having lived in France for 10 years. He has now been a professional chef for over 11 years and has worked under some of London’s most coveted chefs including Gordon Ramsy, Nuno Mendes and Claude Bosi. His most recent role was as the head chef of the popular Pachamama restaurant and in 2015 Adam won the Young British Foodies Chef of the Year prize. Given this, you’re bound to be in for a treat.
