Mains include cured goose with fenugreek; salad of fennel, pollen, lemon balm & pickled rose petals and barbecued octopus with toasted buckwheat, charred brassicas and virgin rapeseed dressing. Desserts include Canales cooked in beeswax, cigar leaf caramel “BB” chocolates and a banana and custard pie.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The dishes I’ve created for Harrods are stylistically aligned with my restaurant, but with a bit more comfort and accessibility. It’s summer, so I’ve gone for a mix of cold foods, salads and baked goods with a simple, light feel where you can taste all the ingredients.
So there’s a fennel salad with lemon balm and pickled rose petals, and a rabbit pie with spring vegetables, seasoned with fenugreek.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Director of Food, Bruce Langlands adds, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Harrods continues to strive to work with some of the best chefs in the industry and our forthcoming partnership with Ollie further cements this Ã¢â‚¬â€œ a truly talented chef, Ollie will bring spice, authenticity and innovation to the Harrods Food Halls from this May.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ollie has worked in leading fine dining restaurants for more than a decade, working under the likes of Raymond Blanc and Andoni Luis Aduriz. An innovative style and creative interpretation of modern European cuisine have seen Dabbous become one of the UK’s most acclaimed chefs with an inspiring Michelin star.
