Peter Joseph has left his role after ten years as Head Chef at Tamarind, one of London’s best Indian restaurants to launch his first solo project in the heart of Chelsea.
This summer, ‘Kahani’ will open opposite Cadogan Hall with an interior inspired by Hindu storytelling and philosophy and dishes using season British ingredients.
Kahani means ‘story’ in Urdu and the inspiration comes from his upbringing where eating was a community celebration. Peter Joseph introduces the finger food concept to his restaurant and diners are encouraged to eat with their fingers in the first few courses. He has taken an inventive and modern approach and combined it with philosophies of seasonality and sustainability to create an exciting and dynamic menu, containing delicious vegan dishes.
Small dishes include fusion plates such as Golden Beets Tiki, Masala Grilled Avocado and Tandoori Calamari then guests can enjoy a selection of skewers from the grill including blue crab, wild venison boti, rabbit kebabs and lemony langoustines. The desert menu has abandoned tradition and includes a ‘chilli chocolate mousse bomb’ and melt in the middle cheesecakes; a fondant twist on the classic desert, with flavours such as raspberry, rose, pistachio, mango, passion fruit and blueberry.
We shall keep you posted on the opening date!
