Creative culinary connoisseurs the Wandering Chef, the brains behind Head, Shoulders veal and toes at the start of summer, return with Opium Nights — a series of mischievous autumn evenings at Kensington hangout La Maison Des Artistes, every weekend throughout September and October.
Pairing decadent aesthetics and delicious dishes with heavy oriental hints, the proceedings are a heady mix of burlesque, DJs and a seven-course Asian-inspired menu of Absinthe soaked sashimi, a modern take on the Japanese nasu miso and Chinese crispy duck with roast pear and dandelion.
A word of warning: the ‘seriously sexy dessert’ of profiteroles is definitely not for the prudish – a pastry laden twist on the infamous Nippon-style nyotaimori, where sushi is served on disrobed ladies, means you might want to brush up on your table manners.
Opium Nights runs every Friday and Saturday at La Maison Des Artistes, 17A Harrington Road, South Kensington, London, SW7 3ES, until 11-12 October.
Tickets are £50 per person and include a welcome cocktail, club entry, seven-course feast and burlesque show.
Please note the event is billed as 7.30pm, with the show commencing promptly at 8pm. Latecomers will forfeit their first plates.
