This summer, London-based vodka distillers, Our/London, has invited some of their favourite chefs to their home in Hackney Downs for Dinner at Ours. From June to September some of London’s finest culinary minds have set up in the East London distillery hosting a series of evenings that have emulated their own, personal interpretations of a relaxed dinner party, inspired by the flavours and unique aromatics of the local vodka.
On 6th and 7th September, to finish off the summer series Sardine's Alex Jackson teams up with Our/London Vodka for Dinner At Ours. Joining some of London's finest culinary minds, Alex will set up shop within the East London Vodka distillery to host his own dinner party inspired by the flavours and unique aromatics of the local vodka.
Known for his Southern French cooking over a wood fire, Alex cut his teeth under the guidance of Stevie Parle, with a few pit stops at some of the most admired establishments in the industry: April Bloomfields Tosca Café and Chez Panisse; before returning to the UK and opening Dalston’s Rotorino.
Located in the arches of Hackney Downs, just 10 minutes from Liverpool Street and 5 minutes from London Fields, Alex will be bringing a touch of Provence with rustic, seasonal-led cooking and pared back, bold flavours. Alex will be working with in-house brand ambassador, Fliss Grandsen, to create some authentic pairings to the spirit too.
