April Bloomfield Is London-Bound
April Bloomfield is headed across the pond for a two-day residency at St John Chinatown, to coincide with the U.K. publication of her cookbook A Girl and Her Pig. The British chef, who completed a book tour in the U.S. in July, will work with Fergus Henderson, co-founder of St John, to create her menus.
On Oct. 30 and 31, the duo will cook two à la carte lunches and two dinners that will include classic dishes from their repertoires.
April Bloomfield is the executive chef and co-owner of three New York restaurants, The Spotted Pig, The Breslin, and The John Dory Oyster Bar, and holds two Michelin stars, one for The Spotted Pig and another for The Breslin.
Bloomfield’s residency mirrors Henderson’s regular visits, dubbed "Fergustock" to New York. Over the past four years, Henderson has brought his signature dishes to Bloomfield’s New York City restaurants.
St John begins taking reservations Sept. 1.
