On Wednesday 18th March, Sager + Wilde and the Typing Room will join forces to host a collaborative wine dinner for one night only. An eight course tasting menu will pair Chef Lee Westcott’s signature style of innovate cooking with Californian wines selected by Michael & Charlotte Sager-Wilde, as featured on the list at Sager + Wilde, their neighbouring wine bar and kitchen. The menu is priced at £150, inclusive of wines and service, and is available throughout the evening.
Michael & Charlotte Sager-Wilde, of both Mission and Sager & Wilde in East London, are known for their role in an emerging trend of wine focused bars and restaurants in London. Together with Lee Westcott and the team at Typing Room, they are proudly at the fore of building Bethnal Green’s food and wine credentials. This event will showcase the talents of two teams in an area which is fast becoming a go-to destination on London’s foodie map.
“I’m really excited about these guys coming in and pairing their wines with my menu, and dishes they wouldn’t typically work with.” explains Lee. “This event stems from a desire to show off the food and drink our local community has to offer.”
Charlotte Sager-Wilde adds “We love how Bethnal Green is emerging not just as a neighbourhood but also as a new destination for food and wine. With this dinner, we will show how Lee’s precise cooking can be beautifully matched with our wines at Sager + Wilde.”
Lee’s menu of eight dishes such as mackerel, passion fruit and kohlrabi and Celeriac, foie gras, mustard and walnut will be paired with some of Sager + Wilde’s rarest bottles including Scholium Project, Pierre Breton, JJ Prum and Pierre Morey.
