What is it?
Located in a three-storey airy space just off Exmouth Market, Kitchen Party is a fully immersive dining, drinking and entertainment concept with a mission to gather some of London’s most exciting chefs and culinary entrepreneurs under one roof.
The Great Indian Peninsula Railway is a seven course culinary journey from one side of the Indian Empire, to the other. The setting is a colonial railway carriage, staffed by uniformed waiters in traditional dress and each course from the tasting menu takes in a different stop along the way, from Rangoon in the east to Kashmir in the west. It’s a journey of the senses: indulgent, immersive and full of surprises.
From the hapless chai wallah to the officious ticket inspector, guests will enjoy a variety of entertainment as the imaginary train steams its way across the subcontinent. Passengers will be given a complimentary cocktail on arrival and with each fantasy stop they are invited to disembark the train and wet their whistles at the Bourne and Hollingsworth bar; as well as refresh their palate with complimentary local tea infusions carefully selected by the on-board team.
The seven course tasting menu is expertly prepared by Oliver Templeton, with each dish inspired by his own travels across the subcontinent. The Great Indian Peninsula Railway have also partnered with Cocoa Hernando India, purveyors of the finest chai-infused chocolate, just to make your journey that little bit sweeter…
