THE ART OF SLOW - LEE WESTCOTT & RON ZACAPA (PR)

TTF Features - THE ART OF SLOW - LEE WESTCOTT & RON ZACAPA (PR)

11-April-2016

This Spring, luxury rum brand Ron Zacapa is partnering with Typing Room’s pioneering Head Chef Lee Westcott to showcase and celebrate the gastronomic art of slow dining. Together, they will host a unique and exclusive luxury supper club experience for consumers that will take guests on a culinary journey through the art of slow cooking and exquisite cocktails.

 

 

The Art of Slow is about taking the time that is required to create meaningful and pleasurable experiences in life. In our ever-busy modern way of life, there has never been a greater luxury than carving out the time to savour not only what we eat, but also the company and conversation with whom that meal is being shared. For Ron Zacapa, time matters more than anything. Aged 2,300 metres above sea level in the House Above The Clouds, this rare liquid is the result of a unique combination of soil, climate and natural materials which are brought together with skilled distillation and craftsmanship and a unique high-altitude, slow ageing process.

The luxury supper club experience, to be held on 9th May at East London’s renowned Typing Room, promises a not-to-be-missed opportunity to feast on culinary fusions from a bespoke menu created by Lee Westcott. The sublime three-course menu will focus on slow cooking techniques and feature a rare ‘edible wonder’, perfectly encapsulating the essence of Zacapa. Each dish will be carefully paired with World Class cocktails crafted by Brand Ambassador, Dan Dove using the incredible flavour profile of Ron Zacapa 23, Ron Zacapa XO, and the newly released Zacapa Limitada. The delicious ‘Zacapa & Leek’ cocktail from the evening combining Ron Zacapa 23, honey roasted leeks, chestnut, allspice and balsamic vinegar will then remain on the menu at Typing Room for three months, allowing visitors to savour the serve right the way through the summer.

 

 

Ron Zacapa has a rich history of working hand-in-hand with high-profile chefs to create some of the most cutting edge culinary fusions. With a focus on the highest quality seasonal ingredients, an innovative approach to cooking, and experience in some of the finest restaurants in the world, Lee Westcott is the perfect partner for Zacapa. Last summer, the brand also hosted a luxury supper club in conjunction with Jason Atherton at Pollen Street Social, which encouraged diners to take time to savour each and every mouthful, sip and scent and to appreciate the unique relationship between the slow cooked menu and hand- crafted cocktails.

Tickets for the showstopping dinner with Lee Westcott at Typing Room will be available to purchase for £100pp at billetto from 1st April.

Founder of TryThisFor.com - An 8 year stint as a food writer not only waged a constant war between Lateef and his waistline but resulted in daily requests for restaurant recommendations. Something had to be done about one of these, and considering a life without food was unthinkable, creating a food-guide was the next logical way to go. Having worked for numerous food-magazines, night-life guides and websites; it was time to create his own.
