RICHARD TURNER, HEAD CHEF OF MARIBELS, BRINDLEY PLACE
£85 6 courses + snacks | £120 Chef’s Table
Former Michelin star chef Richard Turner has recently taken up the position of Head Chef at Maribels in Birmingham following the closure of Turners 69. The ethos is simple: only the finest ingredients expertly cooked with precision, flair and imagination; passion-driven service guided by the sincere desire to delight our guests in warm, opulent surroundings that immerse and envelop. The restaurant “offers accessible menus inspired by French-influenced modern British cooking in a relaxed environment” using seasonal ingredients. It serves an 11-course tasting menu, with dishes including Jersey royals, caviar, sea salt, seaweed butter; pigeon, beetroot, artichoke, orange, dandelion and burdock; chocolate, sea salt, caramel and hazelnut.
The reviews are enviable and it’s clear Richard is back doing what he loves doing best.
“…a masterly grasp of technique, a fine palate, imaginative but not outlandish combinations, a deep knowledge of ingredients and a huge respect for them. …a rice, strawberry, meringue and vanilla confection that rates among the loveliest desserts I’ve eaten.” Paul Fulford
Some Supper Club Members do not like to see the menu before the evening, however if you would prefer to see it please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy!
As a Supper Club we seat guests together to make up larger tables and therefore smaller parties may be seated with other like minded foodies. In some circumstance we are able to split tables but we cannot guarantee this – please add a note to your booking if you prefer to be seated as per your booking.
