A delicious 3-course menu that harks back
Victorian London comes to Caxton Grill
Head Chef Alex Boyd at Caxton Grill has created a delicious 3-course menu that harks back to the time of Queen Victoria, but with inventive modern twists. St. Ermin’s Hotel, where the restaurant is located, has strong links to this period, as the original mansion blocks that were the basis for the hotel were built in 1889.
Alex has delved deep into his historical gastronomic cookbooks to devise a menu that celebrates some of the Victorian’s favourite dishes, with modifications for today’s palette. Every part of the menu has a historical or social relevance to the Victorian era, a soup that recalls London’s fogs, an ale from the capital’s oldest brewery and a dessert invented to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee are just some of the highlights.
This menu is not just a culinary history lesson, it’s also a showcase of Alex’s skill at cleverly evolving original recipes into contemporary dishes, that are still recognisably Victorian. Alex has used the abundance of organic herbs, vegetables, salad and fruit harvested from the hotel’s rooftop kitchen garden to highlight provenance, seasonality and freshness, all equally important factors in Victorian cuisine. He has also worked closely with local butchers to source the finest quality meat and ale from Fuller’s, London’s oldest, still operating, brewery in Chiswick, so ensuring that while the cooking might be influenced by today, the ingredients are authentically Victorian.
