It’s Lockdown 2.0 and after a few tears on Saturday night, my big girl pants are pulled up and November’s diners have all been offered alternative dates or the option of a refund.
Other than those emails it has been business as usual this morning. My Pyromaniac Prototype events sold out for September, October and November so I wanted to get some more dates in the diary. January’s event will be vegan to help those of you who fancy giving Veganuary a go.
There are a lot of things I play around with at home but feel aren’t quite “there” in terms of being added to Gloucester Studio’s menu. Sometimes this is because they aren’t cooked over fire, other times they feel too simple or not special enough. Pyromaniac Prototypes is a monthly event where I’m freeing myself from notions of what constitutes a finished or restaurant dish and instead share the ideas that I’m working on. I state that there will be three courses but this is to clarify the minimum I’ll be serving. There may be a course of tapas or mezze items or there might be ten tiny plates. What there will always be is plenty of surprises.
Tickets cost £35 and include food and mineral water. Additional drinks are available to purchase on the night. The evening runs from 7pm to 10pm.
A full refund or charge-free date change is available should any events be postponed due to Covid-19.
But for now at least I think it’s time to put the kettle on, my feet up and hopefully I’ll see you soon.
