GREAT BRITISH MENU
4 courses served with matching wines
A SUMMER MEADOWS
Courgette Flower, stuffed with Burrata, courgette puree, courgettes
fermented in whey, cured & dehydrated egg yolk and a horseradish snow
“A dish inspired by my time in Australia walking with my two dogs through the meadows. A vegetarian dish showcasing the best of courgettes done in different ways, probably the dish that encompasses my philosophy on food the most on my GBM menu. It is served in a TV with a black and white screen picture of the dish, which when you lift the screen the dish is full of colour. This is to symbolise Wimbledon being the first program to be screened in colour on the BBC in 1967.”
STRAWBERRIES & CREAM
Cured Amberjack, Fermented Strawberries, Strawberry Gel, White Chocolate Aero and Caviar
“It wouldn’t be Wimbledon without Strawberries and Cream, however I wanted to buck the trend of serving this as an ordinary dessert and make it a savoury fish course. Served in a glass bowl reminiscent of the offering at Wimbledon.”
Blackmore Wagyu Sirloin, Cured Red Prawns, Sweet corn and Mini Jacket Potatoes
“My first Wimbledon memory was watching the Australian player Pat Cash win it in 1987. Fast forward 30 years and my ties to Australia have grown, I’m now married to an Aussie from Melbourne where we lived for a few years. This dish was very much inspired by the great Aussie BBQ using for me the finest Australian Wagyu beef.”
Coconut Sago, Smoked Mango, Yoghurt Sponge, White Chocolate & Elderflower Mousse, Yuzu and Milk Crumb
“Wimbledon is the only Tennis competition in the world to still enforce the all white rule. I pay homage to this tradition with an all white dessert, but with the flavours of a Caribbean summer, drawing on memories from summers spent in the Caribbean with my family growing up.”
