Ash Saman pop-up, Yurt Lush (Bristol), Sunday 2 July
Yurt Lush: the unique, super-cool, Bristol-based foodie ‘experience’ co-founded in 2012 by Michelin-starred chef Josh Eggleton (patron of the highly-acclaimed Pony and Trap, Chew Magna) and local farmer Luke Hasell. Ash Saman: the unique, super-cool, Bath-based chef who boasts stints at Chequers, Casamia, Clivedon House Hotel and the Glassboat on his extensive CV. Put ’em together and what have you got? A Very Good Reason to take the short hike from Bath to Bristol on the evening of Sunday 2 July, when Ash will be hosting his very own pop-up menu event in those gert lush yurts (conveniently situated close to Bristol Temple Meads railway station).
If you follow Ash on Twitter (and if you don’t, you really should: @ChefAshSaman) you’ll already be au fait with the kind of dishes that he specialises in – twisty, turny, super-imaginative and always beautifully presented, with more than hint of surprise, wow-factor and the odd “what the heck is that?” moment sprinkled across his more experimental creations. Extraordinary? That’s Ash!
At the time of writing, Ash is developing dishes such as white gazpacho with frozen olive oil / cured hake, leek, dill / salmon, matcha, wasabi / lamb, carrot, goats’ cheese / lemon, tarragon … and white chocolate with burnt celery root (yes, really) for his Bristol pop-up menu, which costs just £49 for the whole array. But the menu may change slightly due to availability of produce closer to the time… and, of course, Ash’s inspirational flashes.
