There are Moroccan flavours in the food at The Shed, and Korean, and German, and French, and before you start thinking, how could that work, don’t worry: it does.
That’s a real skill, of course, for a chef to fill her culinary imagination from different wellsprings and make it all work out well, but Bronwen Laight isn’t short of skills. Her signature dish is slow-cooked lamb and it’s a pretty terrific accompaniment to Te Motu Bordeaux, which you can enjoy in a vertical tasting. As for the setting — really, it’s so pretty you might as well be in Tuscany.
A favourite dish: Braised lamb shoulder with cauliflower, freekeh, nigella, dates, pistachios, figs & yoghurt.
