TASTE SOMETHING DIFFERENT: On Special At Larry’s
This summer’s hottest chef collaboration series is taking place in Peckham. ‘On Special’ launches this month with Larry’s restaurant hosting an array of culinary talents including Selin Kiazim (Oklava), Nud Dudhia (Breddos Tacos), Rob Casson (King of Feasts, Edinburgh) and Ixta Belfrage (Ottolenghi). Each chef’s dish will appear on Larry’s dinner menu for one week only. This week Selin Kiazim has drawn upon her Turkish Cypriot heritage to offer up crispy pomegranate glazed lamb breast and yoghurt. Next week, Rob Casson has created a ‘Kings Patty Melt’ of juicy beef patty with caramelised onions, pickles, his own burger sauce, and slabs of gouda sandwiched in rye bread.
