Gin Tasting and Tasting Menu Dinner at Stovell’s, Chobham at 19.00h
February 11, 2017
Opened in 2012, Stovell’s restaurant takes its name from Fernando Stovell, Chef Patron and offers contemporary European cuisine using sustainably sourced, local produce, which is prepared by a team of talented chefs and served in the unique 16th century farmhouse which is the restaurant.
Fernando is from Mexico City where he studied in a military school, and after three years he gained the rank of officer at the young age of 18. In 1997, after graduating with a degree in International Relations, he decided to move to England and pursue his passion for the culinary arts. After gaining his Professional Chef’s Diploma at Westminster College, Fernando went on to work in several different and prestigious restaurants, including Piccadilly’s Cuckoo Club which, within 6 months, was voted by Tatler as one of the top 100 restaurants.
A huge amount of time, as you will see from the bespoke tasting menu on offer, is spent on sourcing the perfect produce and ingredients to make up their contemporary menu, delivering clean, fresh tasting food that is exciting to experience, and allowing each element of the dish to sing without fuss and enhancing each individual flavour and texture.
Stovell’s Wildcrafted Gin, with lots of sustainably foraged botanicals, was developed by Fernando and Kristy, and Bar Manager Geyan Surendran, with the launch being in April 2015. The stylish bottle concept was created by none other than Jean-Paul Gaultier’s designer. Stovell’s Gin is best served with lots of blueberries! And tonic.
