On Thursday, 29th October Arun Kapil, founder of award winning spice company, Green Saffron will host a Spice Night at The 3 Crowns Old Street pub. Cooking alongside Head Chef Lee Urch, Arun will create a 5-course menu making the most of Green Saffron’s fresh, vibrant spices.
The Spice Night will celebrate Arun’s unparalleled knowledge of spices adding depth and flavour to dishes and surprising the palate with unexpected flavour pairings.
The evening will begin with canapés of Venison Tartar with crisp bread, ‘Gol Guppa’, tamarind water & spice and Artichoke Croques. This will be followed by a Spiced Butternut and Autumn Leaf Salad, slow-cooked Burford Brown egg and shaved raw chestnut.
Guests will next enjoy Cornish Cock Crab Cakes with sweet cucumber pickle, Rajputi ‘split and grilled’ Red Leg Partridge, damson & bramble ‘lunji’ and chickpea game chips finished off with Triple Chocolate Meringue Cream Pie, garam biscuit, pistachio & rose.
A digestif, created especially for the evening will be ‘Mishri and Soonf’ a traditional Indian ‘Paan’ of baby fennel seeds and sugar crystals.
The 3 Crowns menu has seasonality and provenance at the heart, serving a menu of updated British and European classics in the restaurant, and a more informal menu of bar snacks alongside craft ales and cocktails in the pub. Urch’s experience spans over ten years working alongside Quo Vadis Head Chef, Jeremy Lee.
