Spotlight on……Shelley Coleman – Food & Beverage Manager

 

Shelley is our Food & Beverage Manager, also affectionately known as our wine connoisseur. She holds a WSET (Wine & Spirit Education Trust) Diploma and has over 15 years’ service at One Great George Street. We sat down with Shelley to find out about her life inside and outside of the venue.

 

What do you enjoy about working at One Great George Street?

“The team are great to work with, I’m a people person – so that really matters to me. I also appreciate the opportunities for growth, and to learn as a team or personally. Wellbeing is also promoted and practiced throughout the company – this is something that’s not common in this industry.”

What does an average working day look like for you?

“Following a brisk walk along the river, I start with a coffee –(obviously!); and a quick team meeting, as it’s very important to prepare for the current and next day’s activities. I will then work on various projects before lunch service. I now very rarely run a function by myself, so I check the room set-ups and service throughout lunch. My afternoons are usually spent hosting tastings for clients or attending wine tastings myself, as the favourite part of my job is writing our wine list!”

What trends are you currently seeing in the drinks industry?

“Wine and spirit companies are paying more attention to their consumer’s needs, which are leaning towards making healthier choices and enjoying alcohol responsibly. There has been an increasing demand for ‘No & Low’ alcoholic products, as well as alcohol-free spirits.”

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

I enjoy going on long walks, going to the gym, and watching Rugby. I also love spending time with my nieces who are my world.”

What’s your favourite song?

“Signed, sealed, delivered – by Stevie Wonder. I saw him perform the song at Glastonbury in 2010, and it was fantastic – there was an amazing energy in the crowd that I’ll never forget.”

What’s your favourite wine/food combination?

“This is very difficult to answer as I love so many! However, if I was to try and narrow it down to a few, it would have to be slow-roast lamb ragu with a Valpolicella Ripasso in the wintertime; or a crisp Provencal Rose with fresh tomato and basil salad in the summertime.”

Recipe Time! VEGANuary at Brasserie One

Recipe Time!

Have you ever had a meal at a restaurant that tasted SO GOOD, you wished you knew the recipe?

Well, here at Brasserie One we have some delicious dishes available this VEGANuary, and we wanted to share the recipe with you!

Method

Dressing

Combine the dressing ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

Onion Rings

Heat some oil in a pan, then coat the sliced onions in seasoned flour, then dip into the milk and again coat with flour. Place the onion rings carefully into hot oil and fry until golden. Then remove from hot oil, drain off any excess liquid and set aside.

Mushrooms

Fry the onion and garlic in a pan until caramelized and add the shiitake mushrooms.  Fry for a few more minutes and add the Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, tomato puree & vegetable stock, then braise for  20 minutes.  Add the chestnuts and thicken the sauce with the cornflour mixture, stirring continuously while adding it.  Turn to a low heat to keep warm and proceed to make the polenta.

Polenta

Put the vegetable stock for the polenta into a sauce pan and heat.  Pour the polenta in a steady stream into the hot stock while stirring continuously.  It will begin cooking quite quickly and will thicken rapidly.  Season with freshly ground black pepper.

Dish the polenta onto 2 serving plates and top with the mushrooms and crispy onion rings.

Add the verde dressing to the plate and enjoy your dinner!

Take a picture of your finished meal and tag us on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook so we can share in the fun!
