RAVINDER BHOGAL TO LAUNCH POP-UP RESTAURANT AT FRIEZE LONDON

15/09/22
Award-winning chef, journalist and restaurateur, Ravinder Bhogal will bring her much-loved restaurant, Jikoni, to Frieze London this October. Inspired by her lineage of plant-eating ancestors, Ravinder and the Jikoni team will serve an entirely vegetarian focused menu for the duration of her pop-up at London’s headline art fair, from 12th-16th October in Regent’s Park. This will also be available at Jikoni Marylebone from 5th-16th October for guests to enjoy.
  
Cooking what she loosely terms as “immigrant food,” which tells the story of cross-cultural “cooking without borders,” the menu will celebrate the power of food to improve wellbeing, to nurture, nourish and uplift.
  
Vegetables have always been the soul of the kitchen for Ravinder and her irreverent touch and masterful blend of flavours spanning a multitude of cultures are evident in menu highlights such as:
 
  
Dhal makhni and Montgomery’s cheddar croquetas
Heritage carrot achaar
  
Slow cooked celeriac, kimchi beurre noisette
Apple and pear kimchi salsa
  
Burrata, bitter leaves, figs and roasted muscat grapes
Pomegranate dressing
  
Marinated tofu schnitzel, katsu
Chanterelles, autumn truffle
  
Turnip polenta, cornbread, Cime di rapa
Lime pickle butter, pickled onions
  
Spiced cauliflower mac and cheese
Saffron bechamel
  
Hot and sour sweetcorn risotto
Lime leaf butter
  
Saffron and orange blossom crème caramel
Zaytoun date and citrus salad
  
Tahini parfait with honey poached quince 
 
 
On creating a vegetarian menu Ravinder describes how she learnt to treat even the most dull vegetables like turnips and celeriac with respect and cook them without relying on the safety blankets of meat and fish from her vegetarian foremothers, "who perfected the art of making meat-free plates jangle with flavour.
  
Ravinder will source much of the produce to be used at Frieze from Jikoni’s biodynamic farm partner, Waltham Place. She notes, “when the world feels like a wilderness, we find safety and refuge in nature. Fruits, vegetables, grains and herbs are a boon and their presence in our kitchen is life affirming and deserves our attention, respect and celebration.
  
The 130-cover pop-up restaurant will be the first time Jikoni has ventured out of its Blandford Street premises. It will be decorated with plush foliage both edible and otherwise from Waltham Place and will showcase the generous and warm hospitality lead by general manager Neel Kapur that Jikoni has become so well known for.
