In this last part of our current journey with Jeremy Lee we were invited to Quo Vadis to talk kitchens, herbs and foams mousses and creams!
Jeremy took over the helm at this revered Soho restaurant in 2012 and has revamped, lightened and simplified the décor and revamped, lightened and simplified the food. Jeremy has many fans and no one who followed him from his previous outpost at the Blue Print Café has been disappointed. Lived in at one time by Karl Marx and housing kitchens that are ‘a cumbersome beast from another era’ it was interesting to talk to Jeremy about the heritage and the culture he is creating for new young chefs.
However the hero of the film is certainly the herb omelette created by Jeremy with Frances’ herbs. Devoured in minutes by his hungry brigade and instantly on the menu, Jeremy as always expressed it perfectly; ‘To elevate something so familiar and so friendly into something else is just fantastic’.
