WELCOME

TO THE TWELTH EDITION OF LONDON REVEALED

The summer holidays are over, the kids are back at school (until half term) and life

feels like it returns to normal before the Christmas madness begins. It’s a nice time

to be out and about in the city when it’s not too hot or too cold.

BFI London Film Festival starts at the beginning of October on the South Bank

which always promises to bring some stunning cinema to film fans and they are

even hosting film inspired DJ nights. And if you can’t make it to Germany, don’t

worry because Oktoberfest in London gets better and better every year with

various celebrations and interpretations of the event all over town.

medium pan.

4. Add white wine and then add the

vegetable stock, cream, tarragon and

stew all together for about 20 minutes,

until the chicken is tender.

5. Garnish with freshly

chopped tarragon.

12


Burnt Honey Panna Cotta

Florentine makes this dish

with honey from their

honeybees located on

their 4th floor roof.

Makes eight.

300ml milk

700g double cream

150g honey

5 leaves gelatine

Method:

1. Boil the honey in a pan

until it’s caramelised.

2. Soak the gelatine

leaves in cold water.

3. Add half of the

double cream into

the caramelised

honey followed by

the soaked gelatine.

4. Add the rest of the

double cream and

the milk.

5. Pour into glasses and

chill for 3-4 hours.

Aubergine Parmigiana

Serves 4

You will need:

4 aubergines

Plain flour to dust

300g grated

Parmesan

Vegetable oil

Salt

For the tomato

sauce:

2 tins of plum

tomatoes

4 garlic cloves

1 chopped

onion

Olive oil

1 bunch of basil

Salt and pepper

Method:

1. Trim the aubergine and slice lengthways

about 1 cm in thickness.

Arrange the layers in a colander and

season with salt, then leave them for

an hour to draw out the water.

2. Meanwhile, prepare the tomato

sauce. In a large pan heat the olive

oil, add the chopped onion and garlic

and fry slowly until soft; add the plum

tomatoes and cook gently for about

45 minutes. Towards the end of

cooking, season and set aside.

3. Pat the aubergines dry with a towel.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and dust

each of the aubergine slices lightly

with flour. When the oil is hot, fry

the slices for 30 seconds each side

or until golden. In the bottom of a

baking dish, place a little bit of the

tomato sauce, and then layer over

the aubergines. Continue doing so in

layers – a bit of tomato sauce, a few

basil leaves, more aubergines, then

a sprinkle with Parmesan. Repeat

this four times so you will have a nice

thick Parmigiana. Press down lightly

with a spatula to make it compact.

4. Bake for 25

minutes at

160˚C.

LONDON REVEALED SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER 2019 TWELFTH EDITION

WERNER ON WAGYU

INTERVIEW WITH WERNER SEEBACH, HEAD CHEF AT CHINO LATINO

Wagyu beef is a highly prized meat known

for its marbled appearance and its melt

in your mouth tenderness. Chino Latino has

recently added a beautiful wagyu beef dish to

their menu, cooked directly at your table on a

hot Himalayan salt block. Head Chef Werner

Seebach tells us more about his newest dish.

Why is wagyu beef such an expensive meat?

The rearing method is what makes wagyu beef

so expensive. For instance;

calves are fed with milk

replacements by hand

and wear jackets in cold

weather. It’s also not a

total myth that cattle are

fed beer and massaged

to help with the marbling

of the meat.

Which cut of meat do

you use?

We use a cut of the beef

called an oyster blade

that is not used very often as it has two muscles

running straight through the meat. It takes us

about one and a half hours to carefully remove

all the muscles. That leaves us with amazingly

marbled thin pieces of beef for ishiyaki. Other

more sought after cuts of wagyu beef would

cost up to five times more but we wanted

everyone to enjoy our wagyu ishiyaki dish at an

affordable price.

How is your new wagyu beef dish served?

We are not rewriting the history books but

we are doing an authentic Japanese dish

called ishiyaki where the beef is cut into small

pieces and cooked on a rock or stone that has

been heated inside a fire. We have changed

that slightly and we are cooking the beef on

Himalayan salt blocks formed 800 million years

ago and carved out of the mountains of India

and Pakistan.

If you had to cook wagyu at home how would

you do it?

I would light up the BBQ with some Japanese

16


LONDON REVEALED SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER 2019 TWELFTH EDITION

Binchotan charcoal then add some apple and

cedar wood chips to the charcoal and just sear

thebeef, rest, slice and eat.

What is the best type wagyu dish you

ever tasted?

Other than our very own wagyu beef dish, the

best dish was kobe beef in Moscow that was so

marbled I could hardly see the red meat between

all the fat. Just grilled with salt and pepper over

open flames – delicious!

"WE ARE COOKING

THE BEEF ON

HIMALAYAN SALT BLOCKS

FORMED 800 MILLION YEARS

AGO AND CARVED OUT OF

THE MOUNTAINS OF INDIA

AND PAKISTAN."

SPECIAL SET MENU

GO TO

TO BOOK

Day of the Dead, or All Soul’s

Day, is celebrated in Mexico and

across other South American and

European countries to remember

and celebrate departed relatives.

Families use this day to reconnect

with loved ones by building private

altars called ofrendas. They also

bring possessions, gifts, favourite

foods and drinks to the graves of

their lost relations, for them to take

on their spiritual journey.

Chino Latino, with its South

American roots, will be honouring

Day of the Dead. From Friday 1st to

Sunday 3rd November, Chino Latino

will have a special menu which will

include a signature skull cheesecake

LONDON REVEALED SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER 2019 TWELFTH EDITION

THE FILMMAKER’S

GUIDE TO LONDON

London is a hot-bed of amazing filming locations,

with famous landmarks, hidden treasures and

places of movie history littered throughout the city.

Here we round up the top seven places to film,

geek out or enjoy a good old fashioned movie.

London Film Museum

All of that film making can be quite taxing, so

a great way to take a break and get a bit of

inspiration is a trip to the London Film Museum.

Situated in Covent Garden, the museum is home

to original props, costumes and sets from feature

films including Superman, Star Wars and Batman.

BFI IMAX

Sometimes you want to just kick back and watch

a good film rather than shoot one – and the BFI

IMAX is the perfect place to do just that. With the

largest screen in Britain (20m high and 26m wide),

this is the ultimate film watching experience and

perfect for any movie buff.

Notting Hill

The pastel-coloured terraced houses, spotless pavements and

beautiful streets make the perfect backdrop for any budding

filmmaker. Roads such as Kynance Mews make for stunning

shots, but a short walk around the area will uncover some secret

hidden locations that will make those scenes really stand out.

20


Piccadilly Circus

One of the most iconic places in London is

the mesmerising Piccadilly Circus. Awash

with bright lights and animated adverts, this

central tourist hot spot has been the backdrop

for some of the most famous scenes in TV

and film. Get there at night time to really

make those digital displays pop.

London Eye

Featuring in the background of huge films

such as 28 Days Later and Harry Potter

and the Order of the Phoenix, the London

Eye is another solid London filming spot.

Built in 1999, the structure is perfect in the

background – but you can also film in its

pods too for panoramic shots of the city.

Trafalgar Square

Perhaps the most incredible use of the

world-famous Trafalgar Square is the mob

scenes at the pinnacle moment of 2005

film V for Vendetta. Marching through the

square, it’s instantly recognisable and the

perfect location

for such a scene.

Do your research

before heading to

film here though,

as there is a packed

calendar of events

always happening

in the Square.

Tower Bridge

Nothing screams London

quite like Tower Bridge.

Blockbuster filmmakers

have been using this

landmark for years to

signify our great city.

Whether it’s a panoramic

high angle shot or a street

scene with a stunning

backdrop – you can’t

go wrong with good old

Tower Bridge.

LONDON REVEALED SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER 2019 TWELFTH EDITION

INTERVIEW WITH

GIUSEPPE CORALLO

How did you find yourself working as Bar

Manager at Kitchen at Holmes and getting

into the industry?

I started my career in a bar when I was 20

years-old in Italy then came to London

where I’ve worked at Nobo, Aqua

BAR MANAGER AT KITCHEN AT HOLMES

and Soho House. I then started

focusing on openings - my first

one was Mr Foggs Tavern. I

like to do openings as it’s the

best time to insert some of

your DNA into a project. I

also enjoy working at hotels

as you have the chance to

get involved with guests in a

different way.

I loved Kitchen at Holmes from

the first moment I saw it - I thought it’s smart,

easy-going and has lots of potential. It suited my

style and I couldn’t wait to make my mark on it.

“I THOUGHT IT’S

SMART, EASY-GOING

AND HAS LOTS

OF POTENTIAL. IT

SUITED MY STYLE

AND I COULDN’T

WAIT TO MAKE MY

MARK ON IT.”

24

When they offered me the Bar Manager position I

accepted without hesitation.

What can we expect from the cocktails at

Kitchen at Holmes?

Each cocktail has a character and a ‘why’

behind it. We have six cocktails on the

menu including Sherlock’s Pipe, a

negroni-based cocktail served in a pipe

and KT Time, a refreshing cocktail

with gin, cranberry and hibiscus

served in a teapot (recipe below). We

have been quite playful.

What would you choose to eat and for

the perfect accompaniment to drink at

Kitchen at Holmes?

Sherlock’s Pipe makes a great aperitif and goes

well with starters like the Ibérico Bellota or Wild

Boar Salami. The KT Time could be matched with


LONDON REVEALED SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER 2019 TWELFTH EDITION

the Yellow Fin Tuna Tartare or Red Prawns Carpaccio.

For the main course, I’d have the Adriatic Cuttlefish stir

fry with the Chai Fizz or enjoy the Take It Easy after a

Wagyu Rump Steak. And of course, we also have an

amazing selection of wines to choose from.

Tell us a bit about the Marylebone area where

you’re based.

I’m just starting to learn more about the area but it

has a wonderful village feel to it and is a fantastic little

oasis in the heart of the city. It’s home to a really great

mix of people – residents, workers and tourists, and

I love getting to know them when they stop by for a

drink at the bar.

What do you think will keep customers returning

to Kitchen at Holmes?

It’s the little touches that make a great experience.

We’re totally focused on service all day - from

breakfast to the nightcap.

What do you like to drink at home or socially?

I’m a whiskey lover and I’m into my Japanese whiskies

like Nikka Taketsuru. For cocktails, it depends on my

mood - a Tommy’s Margarita if it’s sunny or at night a

whisky-based one for the kick like an Old Fashioned or a

Boulvadier which is a twist on a Negroni with bourbon.

A bitter cocktail because I’m sweet enough already!

Turn the page for Kitchen at Holmes details and

booking information.

KT Time Recipe

Alluding to Ms Hudson’s famous clockwork

tea time ritual, a herbal and fruity tea

cocktail blending hibiscus and elderflower.

50ml Beefeater gin

25ml St. Germain elderflower liqueur

10ml hibiscus syrup

30ml cranberry juice

10ml lime juice

3 drops plum bitters

Method: Shake all the ingredients and double

INDULGE IN THE

ALL THE BEST PLACES

TO POP, FIZZ AND CLINK

When champagne-worthy occasions

arise, you’d be hard-pressed to find a

more exuberant setting to enjoy a glass

of the finer stuff than the backdrop

of London. Whilst maintaining the old

school glamour they have always been

so famous for, London’s champagne bars

have become an institution in themselves

and consequently the perfect location for

any celebration. Or quite frankly, if you

just fancy treating yourself, which we all

do from time to time…

Champagne Bar at Kettner’s

Townhouse (Soho, W1D)

If you imagine you might enjoy a glass of

champagne in the same setting as Oscar

Wilde, you’ll be happy to know that his old

haunt at Kettner’s has been revamped by

the Soho House group and turned in to the

perfect spot to enjoy a glass of bubbly.

The Iris Bar by Searcys

(The Gherkin, EC3A)

Bringing new meaning

to the term ‘living the

high life’, Searcys

has taken over

The Iris Bar on the

40th floor of the

Gherkin, where

guests can sip their

champagne amid

a 360º backdrop of

London.

28


LONDON REVEALED SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER 2019 TWELFTH EDITION

Harry’s Bar James Street

(South Audley Street, W1K)

Iconic is nowhere near enough to describe

the reputation that precedes Harry’s Bar

and although their private member’s

club in Mayfair isn’t open to everyone,

they’ve been kind enough to open an

establishment on James Street for the

general public to enjoy.

DUKES Champagne Picnic

(Green Park, SW1A)

Of all the ways to experience

the champagne life, this has

to be one of the best: a luxury

picnic prepared by one of the

most prestigious hotels in London. You

can even pay extra to have a butler serve it

to you.

Bubbledogs (Fitzrovia, W1T)

If you like the simple idea of only

champagne and hotdogs on the menu,

then Bubbledogs is well worth a visit. This

might sound like a bit of a bizarre concept

but don’t worry they do both of these

things VERY well.

The Ritz Terrace (The Ritz Hotel,

150 Piccadilly, W1J)

Last and by no means least, it really

doesn’t get any more fabulous than

the outdoor terrace at the Ritz. This

will undoubtedly be one of the most

memorable glasses of champagne you’ll ever

enjoy but you might be waiting some time for a

reservation, what with it being one of the most

sought-after places in London and all.

Bob Bob Ricard

(Upper James Street, W1F)

Would this really be a serious list about

drinking champagne if we didn’t include

Bob Bob Ricard? Their world-famous ‘Press

for Champagne’ button has been bringing

joy to its clientele for years now and even

more to their Instagram followers.

Didier Agueh,

our UK Executive

Host and

Artistic Director

welcomes you

to our especially

curated nights

in our beautiful

restaurants and

bars...

LET US ENTERTAIN YOU

What a summer it was! We had record

breaking temperatures, a new Prime Minister

and an extremely busy time across our hotels.

We were pleased to open the new front

terrace at Florentine that allowed people to

savour the warm summer days and nights

whilst listening to the UK’s best young talent

in The Lounge. Our smallest guests enjoyed

the kids activities with a dedicated puppy

themed play room with their favourite

characters.

And now autumn - a lively period in London

filled with cultural events. Fashionistas will

attend the glamorous shows of the iconic

London Fashion Week. The London Design

Festival will host some of the world’s most

talented designers and art lovers will be at

Frieze - one of the most influential art events

on the scene.

This autumn we will change the great

bottomless sushi brunch with live music at

Chino Latino from Saturdays to Sundays. Try

the amazing new menu at our latest restaurant

Kitchen At Holmes in our new Holmes Hotel

where DJs will be spinning lounge and funky

tunes in the Bar. PRIMO and Vic’s Bar have the

pleasure of hosting Jazmin Chloe, memorable

X-Factor contestant who will perform with her

elegant jazz duo.

For this edition of our magazine we have

interviewed Richard Hadfield - ex-member of the

amazing band Collabro who were Britain’s Got

Talent winners. Don’t miss his dazzling monthly

performance at PRIMO where he will perform

with his four-piece band.

As usual, if you really want to have fun, come

and celebrate Halloween with us in one of

our bars. Expect a spooky night with live

entertainment and fancy dress.

Wishing you a great autumn and I look forward

to hosting you soon!

LONDON REVEALED SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER 2019 TWELFTH EDITION

FIVE MINUTES WITH...

RICHARD HADFIELD

What has been your best gig to date?

I think my best gig to date has to be performing

for Duchess Ferguson at Windsor Castle. We had

a crazy amount of celebs in the room like Kate

Moss, Naomi Campbell, Elton John and Robbie

Williams. It was great!

How would you describe your music?

My music is eclectic - from jazz to classical but it

definitely edges more towards the ballad side

of things. Ultimately I aim to tell a true

story through my interpretations of

songs. I think that’s why people

enjoy my shows because they can

see the passion behind every

word I sing.

Who inspires you and why?

My family inspires me with all

their love and support for what I

do. I could tell you artists who have

career paths I’d like to follow but I feel

like that isn’t what spurs me forward. I sing

because I enjoy what music brings to people’s

lives.

What is your favourite cocktail?

I love an Old Fashioned. Whiskey is the nectar of

the Gods!

What has been the craziest moment in your

career so far?

It has to be finding out I had accomplished a

number one album while being part of Collabro.

I didn’t quite know how to handle that. It was

just so overwhelming when we heard it on the

radio as we were coming back from Cardiff

Pride. The car was shaking on the M25 as we

celebrated!

What are some of your favourite songs in

your set?

That’s a hard question. It’s forever changing

although Bewitched will always be one that I

hold dear as it was the first song I performed

at Ronnie Scott’s on the Late Late Show.

I currently really enjoy singing

Somewhere from West Side Story.

It really sits well in my voice and

I have had great responses

from my online audience.

Who have you had the

pleasure of working with?

The list goes on and on!

From One Direction to Andrea

Bocelli. One of my favourite

collaborations though was the

Royal Variety Performance where we

got to share the stage with Ed Sheeran, Shirley

Bassey, Bette Midler and many more. Such fond

memories.

What have you got coming up?

I’m very much looking forward to my ‘Movies

and Musicals’ night at The Crazy Coqs on 14th

September. I also have a very exciting show

alongside Alison Moyet at the Royal Festival Hall

on the 20th September in honour of the life and

work of Michelle Legrand. Apart from live shows,

an EP is in the works currently so keep your eyes

peeled for that!

LONDON REVEALED SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER 2019 TWELFTH EDITION

inspires me with

all their love and

support for what

I do.”
