The Hawksworth Restaurant team will welcome Michelin-Star Chef Philip Howard to their kitchen for a two-night guest chef appearance on February 28 & March 1, 2013.
Chef Howard is the driving force behind The Square in London’s Mayfair, a two-Michelin-starred restaurant with a distinctive modern rench flair, which has enjoyed great ritical and consumer success for over 21 years. Numerous personal accolades have followed for Chef Howard, including Chef’s Chef of the Year 2012 at the National Restaurant Awards, Chef of the Year for The Catey Awards, the AA Restaurant Guide Awards and The Craft Guild, anchoring The Square as one of the leading restaurants in Europe.
Chef Hawksworth and Chef Howard will together create an exquisite six-course tasting menu, available exclusively for two evenings at Hawksworth Restaurant. Costing $175 per person, dinner includes a personalised copy of The Square, The Cookbook, Volume 1: Savoury by Phil Howard ($50 value).
This won’t be the first time the duo have cooked together; Chef David Hawksworth spent a year working with Chef Howard during his ten-year tenure in London. “I admire his poise and command of the kitchen and honest approach to work ethic,” praises Chef Hawksworth. “Chef Howard has a contemporary plating style, which feels in keeping with the elegant plates at Hawksworth Restaurant. I am very proud to share with him BC’s bounty of produce, as well as the talents and technical skills which are present in professional kitchen across the city.”
Chef Philip Howard’s will be the first Guest Chef appearance at Hawksworth, but international connections are nothing new: the Hawksworth team spent two weeks at SEVVA in Hong Kong in February 2012; Chef Hawksworth travelled to the Napa Valley’s Cakebread Cellars in September 2012, for their American Harvest Workshop; and September 2013 will see Hawksworth Restaurant showcased at the prestigious James Beard House in New York City.
