Guest Chef Series

Head Chef Will Bowlby and the team at Kricket are excited to welcome world-renowned chefs Andrew Wong, Vivek Singh and Nuno Mendes to Kricket Television Centre for a Guest Chef Series in September. In aid of the Apne Aap Women’s Collective. Each chef will collaborate with Bowlby for one night only, with tickets available for each night at £50pp and all the profits going to AAWC.

Each of the menus is uniquely relevant to Kricket’s offering, exhibiting the vast diversity of India’s culinary culture and history. Guests are welcomed with a cocktail followed by a three-course sharing menu designed collaboratively with each dish showcasing the guest chefs’ unique cooking styles alongside Will’s approach to Indian food.

Tuesday 15th September:
Kricket x Andrew Wong

Andrew draws on China’s vast repertoire of regional cuisine to create truly unique food from his long-standing Michelin-starred restaurant, A Wong, in Pimlico. Working with Will to create a menu exclusively for this night, together they will showcase Kricket’s philosophy of Indian food as well as Andrew’s skill and knowledge of Chinese food and its influences.


Tuesday 22nd September:
Kricket x Vivek Singh

Instrumental in modernising Indian food for the British public, with five restaurants throughout the UK, Vivek Singh has also played a huge role in Kricket’s progression. On Will’s return from India, prior to launching Kricket with business partner Rik Campbell, he spent the best part of a year learning from Vivek in his City outpost, Cinnamon Kitchen. Will and the rest of the Kricket team have a lot to thank for Vivek’s generosity in teaching and are immensely excited and honoured to have him in their kitchen for this one-off event. The pair share a passion for India’s culinary diversity and favour a marriage of Indian flavours with Western techniques and produce in their cooking.


Tuesday 29th September:
Kricket x Nuno Mendes

Having opened a host of restaurants across the capital, Portuguese chef Nuno is best known for his commitment to global gastronomy. A traveller or ‘viajante’, Nuno has explored the globe in search of unique ingredients and innovative techniques. No surprise then when working together in the kitchen of Chiltern Firehouse, Will and Nuno found that the Indian region of Goa was common ground to both chefs. The Portuguese have left an impressive stamp on Indian food and culture, in particular Goa which remained a Portuguese colony from 1510-1961. A cuisine almost completely unique to the rest of India’s, this exclusively curated Goan-Portuguese menu will showcase the very best of the region.
