London, 09 March 2014: The first ever Chef’s Penthouse will take place at Grosvenor House Apartments by Jumeirah Living on Park Lane from 31 March until Saturday 4 April 2014. Brought to London by TLF Worldwide (the team behind The Cube), this one week pop-up will provide an exclusive ‘at home’ experience with two of the world’s best chefs.
Chefs Simon Hulstone (UK) and Robert Wiedmaier (USA) will take up residence in the penthouse, one of the biggest in London, while guests delight in their delicious food and relax in their company.
With a maximum of 14 seats available per service, guests at the Chef’s Penthouse will enjoy an intimate dining experience at the chefs’ ‘home away from home’. Whether for lunch or dinner, each sitting will include an amazing eight course tasting menu as well as unlimited chef access for the option to watch and learn from the cooking process. As part of the luxury ‘at home’ experience, guests will also be able to take in the stylish surroundings of the hotel residence’s penthouse, with canapés on the terrace, and post-meal relaxation with the chefs. Working with each chef's Sommelier, Ellis of Richmond will supply wine pairing from around the world to accompany Simon and Robert’s dishes.
Recognised as one of the UK’s most decorated chefs, Simon Hulstone has been cooking professionally since his school days and has many awards to his name, including the Roux scholarship for young chefs and the National Chef of the Year award in 2008. In his career, Simon has worked with many big names such as Heston Blumenthal and is now captain of the British side in the Culinary Olympics. Since heading up the team at The Elephant, Torquay, the restaurant was awarded a Michelin star in 2006 which it maintains to this day.
Simon says: "I'm delighted to be given the opportunity to serve delicious south-west produce, much of it sourced from our very own farm, in such a wonderful location. London is a fantastic place to dine and I always enjoy cooking here. Chef's Penthouse at Grosvenor House Apartments is particularly exciting and I look forward to showcasing the flavours of Devon in this relaxed yet luxurious setting."
Named Washington’s Chef of the Year by the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington, Robert Wiedmaier owns the famous and multi-award-winning restaurant Marcel's. Known for serving the most refined French cuisine, it consistently wins top awards and ratings for fine dining in Washington, including ‘America’s Top 25 Restaurants in 25 Cities’.
Robert says: “I am extremely excited to be taking part in the Chef’s Penthouse at Grosvenor House Apartments by Jumeirah Living. What a treat to be able to interact with our guests in such an amazing setting.”
