Chef Luke Selby to host pop-up dining experience at National Theatre

The National Theatre has partnered with Sauce Supper Club to deliver a pop-up dining experience at the theatre’s House Bar and Restaurant from 9-10 October 2019.

The event will be curated by celebrated chef, Luke Selby and his brothers Nathaniel and Theodore.

For the first time, the supper club will also be available as a pre-theatre option, meaning that diners can enjoy this pop-up experience before heading to productions of Hansard, ‘Master Harold’…and the boys or Faith, Hope and Charity.

The former head chef at Hide Restaurant and a star of the BBC’s Great British Menu, Selby has designed a collaborative menu with his brothers (who were also sous chefs at Hide Restaurant), which feature seasonal flavours and showcase the trio’s “outstanding creativity”.

Dishes will include favourite’s from Luke’s appearance on the Great British Menu, such as the ‘Banquet Starter’ (barbequed sweetcorn combined with meadowsweet and butter and served with a meadow scent; using dry ice for a theatrical finish) and the ‘Going Platinum’ dessert (a contemporary take on classic millionaire shortbread flavours).

Main courses include roasted loin of venison, celeriac choucroute and purée, seasonal blackberries and a bitter cocoa sauce.

George Cardwell, deputy director of enterprise at National Theatre, said: “This is an incredibly exciting event for food lovers visiting the National Theatre.

“The Selby brothers are truly talented and world-renowned chefs, and the Sauce Supper Club taking place next month will give diners the rare chance to taste some of their celebrated creations as well as some new, seasonal dishes. We can’t wait to welcome guests to House Bar & Restaurant to taste this unique menu.”
