KitchenAid kicks off new food series, TWO x TWO

27/09/2017 - 07:00
KitchenAid has partnered with the online ticketing platform, RSVP, and Jon Spiteri for its ‘TWO x TWO’ foodie festival – celebrating culinary talent from around the world in a series of pop-up events.

Tasked with designing a menu that “showcases their individual styles” and “encompasses classic flavours from their respective home countries,” the first chefs to pair up are Andrea Zagatti - formerly of Mugaritz and Osteria Francescana - and Santiago Lastra Rodriguez - of Noma Mexico – who will co-host an exclusive dinner on 4 and 5 October at KitchenAid’s London experience store.

Starting at £25 per person, guests can sample a selection of small dishes and canapés, including: cantaloupe gazpacho; red prawn from Mazzara; crispy pantelleria capers; carnitas bun; traditional Mexican confit pig’s head and roasted parsnips with watercress.

The two chefs will also be cooking a five-course meal of British smoked eel, foie gras, langoustine, oxtail and Tiramisu made using porcini mushroom for a savoury twist, on 5 October for 16 guests. Tickets cost £110 per person and include paired cocktails and wines throughout, and are available via http://www.rsvp-popup.com/events/kitchenaid--two-x-two-london-zagatti-lastra-rodriguez.

Simon Langley, UK marketing manager at KitchenAid, said: “For almost a century, KitchenAid has been inspired by great master chefs, their techniques and their secrets. We are inspired by professional tools and results that you can find in a Michelin starred kitchen: stainless steel, sous vide cooking, steam ovens and more. Because at KitchenAid we know that only by truly understanding what makes the great ones great, we can offer the power of bringin creativity into your kitchen.

“This is why we are excited to announce our partnership with RSVP to activate and collaborate with a global network of chefs to deliver outstanding culinary experiences at our London flagship store. We put all this effort to reach the professional performance you need in the name of one passion. Your passion for cooking.”
