Zero-waste restaurant Silo is taking sustainability even further with its latest supper club series
Following sell-out dinners in 2022, Doug McMaster is tackling invasive species again with another round of collab supper clubs featuring ingredients that are damaging the environment. The series is kicking off in June with Matt Orlando (previously of Amass in Copenhagen) joining Doug in the kitchen to cook up a six-course tasting menu centred around Japanese Knotweed, notorious for its impact on the British countryside. Dishes will include the Invasive quaver, a crisp glazed with knotweed treacle, and sweet-sour Knotweed ripple ice cream, served alongside a Silo x CRATE Brewery Knotweed & rhubarb sour beer.
In July, Skye Gyngell of Spring will be in the house, partnering on a menu featuring American Signal Crayfish, which have been devastating British waterways since the mid-1970s, and in September, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall will be heading to Hackney Wick to cook up Himalayan Balsam.
