MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

The fire that swept through the Mandarin Oriental hotel in 2018 mercifully left this restaurant largely untouched but, not a team to rest on their laurels, the chefs took the opportunity afforded by its closure to develop recipes and gain experience in other kitchens.

Heston Blumenthal’s culinary quests led him to ‘The Forme of Cury’ – one of England’s oldest recipe books – and it is from this and other historical works that dishes such as ‘rice and flesh’ and ‘frumenty’ (c.1390) come – although the latter’s ‘grilled octopus with spelt, smoked sea broth and pickled dulse’ wouldn’t sound out of place in any 21C restaurant. Obsessed with consistency, the kitchen works with intelligence, efficiency and attention to detail to produce dishes that look deceptively simple but taste sublime.
