Now in its third year, Quo Vadis & Friends sees Jeremy Lee invite top chefs to cook up a storm at the iconic Soho members club. The first half of this year’s series has involved appearances from the likes of Jackson Boxer, Andrew Clarke, Henry Harris and Rory McCoy.
Part two of the 2019 series will kick off with a vegetarian supper from award-winning cookbook writer Anna Jones on 10 July. This will be followed by Brett Graham, who opened The Ledbury back in 2005, which now boasts two Michelin stars. Brett became known for his emphasis on wild and reared game and seasonal vegetables, which he’ll be bringing to Quo Vadis in September.
Next up is Hackney-based Marksman Public House, the first pub in London to be awarded Michelin Pub of the Year. Chef-owners Jon Rotherham and Tom Harris are old friends of Jeremy’s, and a few years back they invited him to cook at one of their Cookbook Dinners. They’ll all be reuniting on 9 October.
Later in the winter, Tom Adams from Coombeshead Farm will be demonstrating his farm to table style cooking at Quo Vadis. Set across 66 acres of Cornish countryside, Coombeshead is a self-sufficient entity, complete with a beautiful farm, guesthouse and restaurant. Along with fellow chef April Bloomfield, Tom hand-rears pigs and chickens, grows vegetables and fruit, takes honey from the hive and bakes bread using British, stone-ground grains. Tom worked with Jeremy in the past at Blueprint Café, and he will be returning to the capital on 12 November for an evening featuring sustainably grown, seasonal produce.
Events are usually held in the dining rooms on the second floor at long, family-style tables. Afterwards, guests are invited to move down into the QV Club to continue the party.
