London Calling

Robert Wiedmaier was invited to cook at two exclusive epicurean events.

In collaboration with HauteLife, Chef Robert Wiedmaier headed 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 London Mayor Boris Johnson.

In addition, Chef Wiedmaier collaborated with Michelin-starred Chef Simon Hulstone, of Elephant Restaurant 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 comprised 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 eggshell with cauliflower mousse, mixed with lemon essence and topped with Osetra caviar, and his roasted pigeon with diced potato risotto.
