Gastropub Paradise by Way of Kensal Green is to hold a supper club focusing on game to celebrate new chef Cat Ashton's first game season at the venue.
The club, named "Cat's got game", is planned for 14 October, and will include a four-course menu with dishes such as pheasant rillettes, wood pigeon saltimbocca, venison Wellington and mallard bresaola. The cost will be £35 per person.
Ashton, who joined the 130-cover restaurant as head chef in March 2015, was previously head chef at Petersham Nurseries and also worked at Melbourne's Momo and Atomica Café in her native Australia.
She has also designed a seasonal game menu for the main restaurant, with dishes including wild boar and gruyere cheeseburger with smoky tomato mayonnaise; and pot-roast black pepper and honey partridge with autumnal root vegetable, pear, prosciutto and sage butter.
There will also be game additions to the pub's Sunday roast ‘sessions', with dishes such as slow-roasted venison haunch marinated in crushed green peppercorns, and lighter options, such as seared pigeon salad with roasted baby beetroot.
Part of restaurant, bar and club company the Columbo Group, Paradise by Way of Kensal Green is located at 19 Kilburn Lane and owned and operated by Steve Ball and Riz Shaikh. Its other venues include the Cat & Mutton in Hackney, XOYO club in Shoreditch, and the Blues Kitchen sites in Camden, Shoreditch and Brixton.
