About the Chef

Kicking off the table&candle calendar for 2019 is acclaimed plant-based chef, Bettina Campolucci Bordi, who’s bringing a seven course, gluten-free plant-based menu with paired cocktail and wines to Iron Bloom in Hoxton 18th-19th October.

Bettina spent her first eleven years in Tanzania, visiting markets with her mother and “making things from scratch like yogurts, milks and butters… and using lots of fresh herbs”. This approach is pivotal to her style of cooking now - and she combines it with the “pickling, preserving and foraging” methods she picked up during her teenage years in Scandinavia.

Bettina’s 7-course tasting menu brings to life her diverse upbringing whilst infusing ingredients and influences from various South East Asian cuisines.

Elaborating further on her cooking style and on what table&candle diners can expect, Bettina talks about her desire to create multi-dimensional dishes “with lots of flavours, textures… (and) colours that bring out emotion”.

In spite of the surging popularity of vegan food, Bettina feels it’s still a challenge to find chefs with the requisite skills to do this approach justice - which makes the highly skilled team and menu she’s assembled for her first table&candle restaurant outing something to savour, for even the most stubborn of omnivores.

Music on the night: World funk, soul & jazz with a LIVE set from a percussionist/harpist duo.
