Top 10 food and drink trends for 2018

Chef’s tables

As diners seek ever more personal and bespoke food experiences, chefs are responding with development kitchens that are designed to feel like you’ve been given a backstage pass to all the exciting behind the scenes action.

Chef James Knappet pioneered the idea years ago at his Kitchen Table concept behind Champagne and hotdog specialist Bubbledogs in Fitzrovia. This year will see more chefs joining the party. Among the most interesting will be Simon Rogan’s Aulis, an eight-seater no menu venue in central London.

Guests pay £250 a head and are treated to a tasting menu of Rogan’s latest creations alongside wines designed to harmonise with the flavours in the dishes. This is the nearest you’ll get to a Rogan dinner party, who will be on hand to not only cook his mind-blowing dishes, but explain the thought process behind them.

Another chef to open up their kitchen is Wahaca’s Thomasina Miers, who recently launched Wahaca Test Kitchen in Shoreditch, where diners can try her Mexican-inspired dishes before they make it to the main menu or get pulped.
