Rhiannon Lambert’s supper club – 25th January
In addition, nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert (BSc MSc ANutr) will be hosting a nourishing three-course supper club on 25 January 2019. Having established herself at London’s most renowned health boutiques, Rhiannon leads a team of nutritionists from her Harley Street clinic, and runs podcast Food For Thought. Her recent book, Re-nourish: A Simple Way to Eat Well, is part recipe-book and part lifestyle guide, and will inspire all three courses. The supper club will be followed by a Q&A with Rhiannon, allowing guests to learn the secrets behind creating indulgent yet nutritious dishes to share with friends and family. The special menu includes fresh, wholesome dishes such as Beetroot and goat’s cheese salad, Cod with fresh mussels and kohlrabi, and a signature Searcys Bakewell tart for dessert.
Lillet and watercolour masterclass with a low ABV wellbeing talk – Sunday 27 January and 3 February
A different take on a balanced lifestyle comes from watercolour artist and Lillet aperitifs ambassador Clotilde Lataille, through her special menu of Lillet-based cocktails crafted for Iris Bar at The Gherkin. Clotilde brings art and hospitality together in a unique way, combining her two passions under one roof. Drawing inspiration from colours and nature, Clotilde has created bright and zesty cocktails using unexpected ingredients. Particular highlights are the Carrot Royale (Lillet rosé, carrot juice, grapefruit juice and cayenne tincture), and the Fresh Start (Lillet Blanc, green tea, ginger cordial, Monkey 47 gin and lemon essential oil). Available on Iris Bar menu throughout January and February, Lillet’s art-inspired cocktails and mocktails will also be the theme of winter cocktails at the Gherkin. Watercolour enthusiasts are also invited to experience an exclusive watercolour session with Clotilde at a Sunday Brunch on 27 January and 3 February. Originating in the small French village of Podensac near Sauternes, Lillet created the first and only aperitif from Bordeaux, a blend of wines and fruit macerations crafted in Podensac cellars.
