Greg Malouf, ex-Michelin-starred chef at Petersham Nurseries, will be taking over the kitchen at The Imperial on August 11, 12 and 13 for a brief but exciting summer residency.
He first rose to fame in his native Melbourne, Australia, at the award-winning MoMo Restaurant and was credited as a major force behind the new wave of modern Middle-Eastern cooking that swept through Australia in the late 1990s – and which has continued to show its influence around the world ever since. He is the author of seven acclaimed cookbooks. His food is heavily influenced and informed by his Lebanese roots.
During his residency at The Imperial, diners can expect a four course sharing feast with 12 dishes in all, including signatures such as roasted giant gulf prawns with green chermoula; salmon kibbeh; and pavlova, lemon posset, black figs and pinenut praline.
The four-course menu is £60 per head on the 11th and 12th, and £110 per head on the 13th with wine pairings by Lebanese wine maker Chateau Musar.
