Chef Tom Hunt will host the second in Poco’s series of Meet the Producer events – A Biodynamic Feast with Pacta Connect – at Poco Broadway Market on 25th May 2016. The bi-monthly event series launched earlier this year with a Mast Brothers Chocolate Feast. For the second event Tom is teaming up with Pacta Connect; a Brighton-based importer of Istrian wines from biodynamic and small producers.
The ‘Meet the Producer’ series is about celebrating the producers who are at the heart of Poco’s approach to food. At each event executive chef Tom Hunt will team up with one of Poco’s artisanal producers to create a special menu, giving guests the opportunity to learn the story behind the suppliers and the ethics of the ingredients used at Poco.
For Meet the Producer #2: A Biodynamic Feast Tom has created a seasonal menu which will be served with matching wines from the Istrian region chosen by Pacta Connect’s Judith Burns and Trevor Long. The evening will begin with a short talk from Judith and Trevor before Tom introduces the set menu. Some sample dishes and pairings include:
Labneh, buckwheat, pumpkin seeds, Madagascan cacao, rose, argan oil Batič Rosé 2014
Asparagus, spring onions, smoked labneh, dukka Batič Sivi Pinot 2011
Rainbow trout ceviche, radishes, chillies, wholemeal flat bread Klabjan Malvazija 2013
