Stoke Newington-based Australian restaurant Wander will offer a seven-course banquet, created by owner and chef Alexis Noble in collaboration with chef Elizabeth Haigh, to celebrate International Women’s Day.
The Wander Women dinner will highlight female producers, with all elements of the evening created by women.
Alexis Noble opened Wander with the intention of developing a nurturing environment for the female chef that would allow her to “create, inspire and have fun.”
Noble will join forces with Elizabeth Haigh (née Allen), a MasterChef 2011 competitor and the face behind blog The Modern Chef, who went on to win a Michelin star at Hackney-based restaurant Pidgin.
The seven-course menu will feature burrata with rhubarb and pomello, aged sirloin steak with caramelised cabbage followed by a selection of Neal’s Yard cheeses, a watermelon and shiso pavlova, and petit fours by Cadence Chocolates.
The wine list will include a selection from female producers around the globe such as Australian producer Josephine Perry’s Dormilona Wines. Organic and biodynamic, Dormilona translates from Spanish as “lazy bones” and epitomises the Margaret River producer’s ethos of minimum interference in the winemaking process.
The dinner will be served on ceramics by female collective Ophelia Works, with a playlist comprising of female artists including Hole, PJ Harvey and Stevie Nicks.
Taking place on the 8 and 9 of March, the dinner will be priced at £40 per person, with a flight of six wines for an additional £30.
