Chef Robert Wiedmaier headed over across the pond to cook at a private reception for the new U.S. Ambassador to the U.K., Matthew Barzun. The exclusive event took place the evening of April 3rd and guests included such luminaries as Boris Johnson, the mayor of London.
In addition, Chef Wiedmaier collaborated with michelin-starred British Chef Simon Hulstone (Elephant in Torquay) on an elaborate menu for a series of intimate ‘pop up’ dinners at Grosvenor House Apartments on Park Lane, the week of March 31st. Created by Jumeirah Living, these ‘at home’ experiences with the chefs consisted of eight tasting courses for a maximum of 14 guests per night. Situated in the ‘Chef’s Penthouse’ perched at the very top of the building, they were an extraordinary way to experience the cuisine of both chefs.
Imagine a dinner party set in a room with a view and two incredible chefs at your beck and call! Highlights of the night included Wiedmaier’s egg shell with cauliflower mousse, mixed with lemon essence and topped with Osetra caviar, and his roasted pigeon with diced potato risotto.
