They made a great team when they co-presented from Marrakech in the BBC show Remarkable Places to Eat. Now Fred Siriex and Andy Oliver are joining forces for a one month pop-up in East London.
One Love will be a combination of Caribbean family cooking and French influences, taking over the Clapton Country Club for a month.
As Fred explains: "I am very excited because Andi and I are opening a pop up here at the Clapton Country Club. It's called One Love and we're going to create a brilliant exciting experience. It's Caribbean food, cooked by Andi, French touches, beautiful French pastries like you have in Paris, great French wines and delicious rum cocktails."
Andi adds: "The Caribbean meal this is called - not Jamaican, because there's more than just one island. The ethos for One Love is quite simple - great food, wonderful people, amazing drinks and good good good vibes."
Dishes on the menu include:
- Wadadli orange & ginger sticky wings
- Aunty linnette’s salt fish fritters & mango chow
- Saucisson and wadadli gherkin relish
There'll be rotis with a choice of BBQ chicken, tofu, merguez or Cubano pork and larger sharing dishes include a must-try Andi’s chocolate curry goat with loaded french fries. And the sandwich section features a selection made with Coco Bread from Dalston's Rainbow bakery.
Desserts are more French inspired - so you can try Fred's mum's chocolate mousse, a tarte aux fruits and an assiette de noix de coco along with a cheese platter picked by Fred.
In addition to the restaurant there'll also be a separate bar called The Department of Life that you can visit for pre or post meal drinks.
