SkyMarket inspiration for the final 3 weeks…

COLONIAL CUISINE

Without the need or desire for socio-political debate, our featuring chefs retrace their routes to discover the origins and development of their own culture and the impact colonisation, trade and assimilation had on their particular cuisine.

Focusing on the East Indies (namely Indonesia) colonised by the British, Portuguese and Dutch to the West Indies (Caribbean islands) colonised by the Spanish, British and French, one can start to understand how, what, when and why certain food products, cooking techniques and dining styles became established and gained such popularity.

From the Dutch colonist’s conception of the rijstafel (rice table) designed to enjoy 7 to 40 Indonesian dishes in one meal to the British colonist’s  introduction of tea drinking and African food staples loved by Jamaicans, our inspirational market menu invites you to a taste experience through time and space- exotic yet familiar, distant yet close to home, historic yet timeless!

Last chance!

Running until 17th November, this 3 week menu concludes our gastronomical SkyMarket journey.

Booking in advance offers a complete meal where you may choose between the East Indies taster menu, West Indies taster menu or East & West combo menu each priced at £30 per person. Go to http://skymarket.eventbrite.com to view our full menu details and to book. Only 40 spaces available for dinner per night!

Pre-booking guarantees a table, however you are equally welcome to casually come along if you would prefer to order a la carte or simply come up for drinks (winter warmers now also available).

 

SkyMarket opening times:

Wednesday to Saturday 12pm to 10pm
