Our Head Chef Charlene shares her Winter Warmer

Roasted shoulder of lamb on caramelised onion, celeriac and sweet potato boulangère with fresh herb salsa

This recipe is one that I cook at home on those days when I don’t need to be too precious about cooking everything perfectly. It lets you indulge in the smell of roasting lamb while not spending too much time in the kitchen, but the best part of this recipe is the absence of piles of washing up!

Catering Staff – A Dying Breed?

We are lucky to have an excellent catering team at One Great George Street (one that recently helped us scoop London’s Best Private Dining Venue no less!) but over the last ten years I’ve worked at our Westminster venue I’ve noticed the process of recruiting new catering talent has become longer and longer.
