THIS CHEF IS DESTINED FOR A MICHELIN STAR.
It has been 5 years since Adam Handling was a finalist of the BBC’s Masterchef: The Professionals, and he is now producing some of the best dishes the capital has to offer in his acclaimed restaurant The Frog.
With an ever changing menu it seems redundant to highlight dishes, however I must mention the Chicken Butter as being exceedingly moreish. The Beetroot, Beetroot and Beetroot dish was a pleasurable revelation, and if you are feeling particularly indulgent then do try the Cheese Doughnuts.
The Frog also has one of the best tasting menus I have sampled in a long time. I must admit I was a bit sceptical about some of the combinations, however Adam Handling expertly pairs ingredients that challenge and delight at the same time.
The tasting menu is amazing value at £45pp for six courses and it is more generous than many of the higher priced options you’ll find in the city. The Frog also has a vegetarian and vegan menu which includes one of my favourite Celeriac dishes.
“THE FLAVOURS ARE REFRESHING AND THE PRESENTATION IS IMMACULATE”
Due to the success of this restaurant The Frog has recently moved to a bigger site in Hoxton. If heading out here is a little too far east for your liking, then you can also sample Handling’s cuisine at Frog by Adam Handling in Covent Garden.
This restaurant has a brilliant balance of exquisite food with an unpretentious vibe. The flavours are refreshing and the presentation is immaculate. I also thought it was a great touch having the chefs come out explain certain dishes during the tasting menu.
I have no doubt that this highly accomplished chef is destined for a Michelin star and if you are a foodie then an Adam Handling restaurant should be on your hitlist if you haven’t been already.
