London-based jazz-and-barbecue group the Blues Kitchen and street-food inspired brand Pizza Pilgrims are to team up throughout February and March to create a new ‘guest' pizza and burger.
The collaboration will see the groups developing a new burger for February and a new pizza for March, with each dish inspired by the other's culinary style.
Firstly, Pizza Pilgrims will create a new £15 pizza-style burger to be sold across the Blues Kitchen's Shoreditch, Brixton and Camden sites.
The creation will contain a dry-aged Angus and Shorthorn steak patty, Parmigiano Reggiano, smoked buffalo mozzarella, melted n'duja sausage from Calabria, fresh basil, and San Marzano tomato ketchup, topped with a truffle mac'n'cheese arancini. It will be named "the Pilgrim", thanks to the culinary journey it will aim to take diners on.
Owned by the Colombo Group, Blues Kitchen first opened in Camden in 2009, with the Shoreditch site opening in 2014. It opened on the site of the former Electric Social venue in Brixton in mid-2015.
Pizza Pilgrims began as a street-food van in 2011, founded at Berwick Street Market by Thom and James Elliot (sons of late pub owner, Nick Elliot). It opened its first permanent location in Dean Street in 2013, followed by Kingly Street in July 2014, and the Exmouth Market site in November last year.
