Things got a little bit (more than) indulgent when I went to Miele's Nordic Cuisine Chef's Table with Martyn Meid last week. Martyn had prepared a 7 course tasting menu for us and each course was expertly paired with a different glass of wine by his sommelier.
I must admit, I was a little anxious when I received the invite in my inbox. The most Nordic meal I've ever eaten before would probably be from Ikea (if that even counts). On the night I was quickly swayed by Martyn's infectious passion for good, simple food. All his food is completely seasonal and organic. Utterly dedicated, he's one of those chefs who'll be up at the crack of dawn foraging or at a market for that day's ingredients.
To start we had lobster, squid ink, chicken jus, burnt onion, raw pumpkin, leek ash and edible flowers; served with a glass of Prosecco.
And there we have it! The evening was so perfectly relaxed and service so smooth I could've stayed to eat (and drink!) more. An intimate atmosphere like this is perfect for trying new things, especially in the company of some other fantastic bloggers and food-lovers!
Miele's showrooms in Central London and Abingdon host a heap of different food courses from bread making masterclasses, entertaining at home to chef's table evenings like the one I attended.

A big thanks to Hannah from White for the invite. She's kindly asked to include her Twitter page for other bloggers that would like to attend something similar!
