Reawaken this Winter with Searcys at The Gherkin’s
‘The Art of Being’ all-female line-up of wellness events
This January we will be kick starting our 2019 wellness routine with ‘The Art of Being’ at Searcys at The Gherkin. The all-female line up of chef and wellness events offers the perfect opportunity to reboot and try something new, under the guidance of some aspiring artists, cooks and yogis, sharing their own take on how to live life to the full.
The busy month of January sees a special guest menu from Bake Off finalist Ruby Bhogal; a supper club and Q&A hosted by renowned nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert, watercolour classes in collaboration with aperitif Lillet artist-in-resident, Clotilde Lataille and biweekly panoramic yoga classes with Yogasphere.
Bake Off’s finalist Ruby Bhogal will kick things off with a special menu celebrating seasonal, ethically-sourced ingredients. Inspired by her childhood, highlights from Ruby’s three-course lunch menu include a hearty soup of Jerusalem artichokes with Burford brown egg, a Pot roast guinea fowl with turnips and winter broth and Baked squash, barley, apple, sprout hearts and walnuts.
Harley Street clinic nutritionist and author of Re-nourish: A Simple Way to Eat Well, Rhiannon Lambert will also be making a guest appearance, hosting a nourishing three-course supper club on 25 January 2019, followed by a Q&A with Rhiannon, allowing guests to learn the secrets behind creating indulgent yet nutritious dishes to share with friends and family. The special menu includes fresh, wholesome dishes such as Beetroot and goat’s cheese salad, Cod with fresh mussels and kohlrabi, and a signature Searcys Bakewell tart for dessert.
A different take on a balanced lifestyle comes from watercolour artist and Lillet aperitifs ambassador Clotilde Lataille, through her special menu of Lillet-based cocktails crafted for Iris Bar at The Gherkin. Drawing inspiration from colours and nature, such as the Carrot Royale (Lillet rosé, carrot juice, grapefruit juice and cayenne tincture), and the Fresh Start (Lillet Blanc, green tea, ginger cordial, Monkey 47 gin and lemon essential oil). The watercolour artist is also inviting fellow enthusiasts to join her for an exclusive watercolour session at Sunday Brunch on 27 January and 3 February.
Helping you balance all that nutritious food with some exercise for both the body and mind, Searcys at The Gherkin have partnered with pioneering brand Yogasphere for a series of twice weekly yoga classes, launching on 12 January. Set in a seminal glass dome, with 360º views across the city below, the morning classes are the perfect way to start your day on a high, running Saturday mornings 8.30-10am, and Wednesday from 7.15am-8.45am. Post-class, explore a sensory immersion with a 30-minute sound bath on Saturday mornings, and reset your outlook with a short wellbeing talk on Wednesday mornings.
