Details of the menu – a seven-course vegetarian meal – are not fully known yet. What we do know is that Adam is passionate about using the best quality produce, drawing on inspiration from his global travels to create British dishes with an original twist. On this occasion, he has already pickled and preserved a few top quality ingredients, including Hen of the Woods mushrooms and Seablite capers. But the final ingredients of their menu creation will be kept a surprise until Friday.

Adam and Anton themselves will go out and explore the British marshes and forest, hand-picking the seasonal delights that will make up their tasting menu, such as wild mushrooms; wet walnuts; geisha quince; wood sorrel; rosehips; and nasturtium, alongside baby seaweed; sea beets; and other wonders from the waters. To give diners a sneak preview of what’s in store at this exclusive seasonal supper, their discoveries will be documented on their Instagram accounts, during their expedition.

Somewhere Over the Reignbow: LGBT Rights Protected in Queen’s Speech

With all the recent sombre news, coupled with the feeling that communities in cities are experiencing particular oppression, it is indeed heartening to hear the following words in the Queen’s speech: “My government will make further progress to tackle the gender pay gap and discrimination against people on the basis of their race, faith, gender, …

Oh to be at Camino Bankside Now that Summer is Here

With temperatures set to soar as though it was 1976 (SEEN remembers sweltering through that), your best bet is to get anywhere by the river Thames, where the views are gobsmacking, and the food is fabulous. Like last year, London is awash with marvellous gins – and let’s remind ourselves, if you drink gin you are partaking in a resonant and historical pastime that is inextricably linked to London’s rich, vibrant and – dare we say it – dark past.

Kieren Hughes: Urban Dreamscape

SEEN was instantly captivated by the work of the Cheltenham-born artist Kieren Hughes recently. His unsettling images seem born of modern-day anxieties about urban living, as in Chicago Fever Dream or the privileges accrued by a rich elite, as in The Last Privilege of an Oil Man.
