Thursday April 29th: Homage to David Everitt-Matthias
As part of our ongoing homage series, we'll be serving a menu inspired by the food of David Everitt-Mathias, chef of Le Champignon Sauvage, Cheltenham, UK. Everitt-Matthias is a cook's chef who has reportedly not missed a service since 1987 and heads the smallest brigade to earn two michelin stars--just himself and two other cooks. The food at Le Champignon Sauvage is characterized by sensible combinations of luxury and economy and interesting departures from classic French.
