Genevieve Taylor to set things alight at Stafford London Courtyard Fire series

Following on from the success of its first events with Hawksmoor, Lisa Goodwin Allen and Norma, The Stafford London hotel will be welcoming chef and best-selling author, Genevieve Taylor, as part of its Courtyard Fire series.

On the 5 June, Taylor will be joining forces with Culinary Director Ben Tish and Executive Chef Jozef Rogulski to cook a collaborative menu from the outdoor grilling area in The Courtyard at The American Bar.

Taylor will be serving up dishes which feature in her newly released cookbook, Foolproof BBO: 60 Simple Recipes to Make the Most of Your Barbecue.

Alongside the Stafford team, she will be dishing up snacks of Harissa lamb, pepper and date kebabs and Stuffed bell peppers, mojo verde and crispy marjoram.

Taylor will be following that up with starters of Salmon, courgette and lemon kebabs with a herbed Greek yogurt and Grass fed beef tartare, pine nut puree, tallow crisp and aioli.

Main courses are Pork, fennel and lemon burgers with grilled aubergine and tomato relish or Chargrilled octopus, grilled romano pepper, borlotti beans and a fennel gremolata.

Guests can finish off their experience with a dessert of Grilled pineapple with a chilli, rum and butter sauce, served with vanilla ice-cream.

As well as her latest book, Taylor has published another nine cookery books including the bestselling Charred, a complete guide to vegetarian BBQ. She also runs the Bristol Fire School, a cookery school dedicated to cooking over fire.

Taylor said, “I’m delighted to be returning to The Stafford for another day at the BBQ with Ben and the team. It’s great to be cooking from Foolproof BBQ which was a great lockdown project, it will be fantastic to see people eating my food in real life at last!”
