As our kitchen at the Bridge Theatre goes from strength to strength we are central to the daily life of the working theatre, providing sustenance to theatregoers as well as those who work and walk around glorious Tower Bridge. In a mere two weeks the theatre will see the opening of a brand new Alan Bennett play, excitement indeed.

Setting The Agenda
Spring is coming and our fields and gardens have certainly been watered in readiness…! Since this is my first blog post of the year, it seems appropriate to set the agenda with some cultural notes.
METAPHYSICAL ALCHEMY: THE SUM of its PARTS DINNER
As Aristotle told us, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. In wine this is expressed through the alchemy of blends. Each region has their grand and ancient tradition of the assemblage, and each winemaker needs the highest intuition into the vagaries of vintage, varietal and vine. Those vignerons are the angelic sprites (some more angelic, some more sprightly) who conjure the mystic delights which we celebrate this April, as we explain how blended wines, and dishes too, become more than a sum of their parts. This dinner celebrates that alchemy.
