Aikens to host The Pawn anniversary dinner
In celebration of The Pawn’s one-year anniversary since Tom Aikens took over as culinary director, the Michelin-starred British chef has created a four-course feast for lucky HK diners.
Wan Chai’s popular gastropub, The Pawn was revamped and its menu redesigned by Aikens last year following a three-month closure and now Aikens is back to host a “special, celebration dinner” on Wednesday 4, November.
Following Aiken’s trademark balance “between high end, but also good honest British cooking,” the menu is based around “the best of fresh produce” including fermented green lentils, lentil velouté, ham jelly, foie gras granules, “scorched” eel, onion, bread, egg yolk, poached lamb loin, curry spices, kimchi and apple and dill granite with yoghurt.
The anniversary dinner comes just before Aiken’s second venture with the Press Room Group, in the form of The Fat Pig which will open in Causeway Bay in November.
