Description

THE CHEF

Santiago Lastra is a young, nomadic Mexican Chef. After working for years in Mexico he carried out joined the Nordic food lab in Copenhagen researching how to make tortillas with the local grains of Scandinavia. He has cooked in internationally recognized restaurants such as Mugaritz (in the Basque Country), Bror (in Copenhagen), Hotel Europa (in Pamplona), and recently worked for restaurant noma as project manager of their last pop up in Tulum, Mexico. There he worked side by side with René Redzepi and Rosio Sanchez organizing research trips, and oversaw logistics and sourcing of the best ingredients in the country.

Straight after that he came to London as guest chef at the Tate Modern Museum, making dinners for around 600 people; since then making collaborations and dinners around Europe in places like Hija de Sanchez in Copenhagen, Meteri in Italy and Good Bank in Berlin.

Santiago is putting an end to his nomadic life, having recently moved to London where he plans to open a restaurant.

THE COCKTAIL MAESTRO

Joining Santiago for this dinner will be Alex Smith, a Copenhagen-based cocktail master and bartender. Having worked at the famous Barking Dog (celebrated for its tequila and mezcal cocktails), Alex then moved on to Restaurant Barr, in Copenhagen, as bar manager, where he devised the restaurant's opening cocktail list.

Alex is here to teach us a thing or two about tequila and mezcal, and hopefully change your perception about the both of them.

///

The dinner itself. Because we can’t forget that can we?

  • Family style (big dishes served at communal tables, make some new friends etc.),
  • 5 courses (likely to beà ceviche, taco(s), another snack, a main course, and of course dessert)
  • The event will be BYOB, BUT Alex is gonna whip up some complimentary cocktails and you wouldn’t want to miss that would you?
  • We can cater to vegetarians, we can't guarantee the menu will be suitable for vegans / plz ask ahead before booking if vegan.

Cheers & see you then!
