Aiken’s acclaimed restaurants have long emphasised the importance of British fare, and the use of seasonal ingredients. It is this ethos which makes him perfectly suited to a culinary celebration of Constable’s work and its relationship to the English countryside. Aiken’s chefs all uphold the importance of environmentally sustainable cooking, and support local agriculture by remaining loyal to local fishermen and community farms.
Dishes on the Constable menu include potted smoked and poached salmon with pickled cucumber, and Blythburgh Pork Belly served with caramelized parsnips and garnished with a spiced honey glaze. We suggest you keep a little room for pudding, too, however, as we are particularly excited by the prospect of a sticky toffee pudding topped with salted caramel ice cream.
Aiken is deservedly renowned in the world of British fine dining, having first made his name at Michelin-starred Tante Claire.
