HEUTE KOCHT :: IAN CALLAGHAN – British Evening – 19.00

Datum: Do, 13.01.2011
Veranstalter: raj & Verein Innenhofkultur
Ort: raj, Badgasse 7, 9020 Klagenfurt

Born and raised in London, Ian spent many years working in bars, restaurants and hotels in London and Cambridgeshire. Now living in Klagenfurt, he brings some of his skill and flair to Raj.


For one night only, he““““ll be presenting his interpretation of traditional British cuisine with a modern twist, accompanied by quality cocktails and wine recommendations.

Ian wrote me today – 4/1/2011 – the following email:

The menu will be as follows – und wir werden 18 Euro verrechnen:

  • Optional Aperative: Gin Cocktails
  • Starter: Potted Shrimp
  • Main: Pressed Belly of Pork with Seasonal Vegetables
  • Desert: Fruit Crumble

As far as getting people interested, I would mention something about the new wave of chefs in England like Jamie Oliver, Gordon Ramsey and Marco Pierre White who have done a lot to change the way people eat and cook. Like I said to you yesterday, a lot of people have a bad impression of British food based on experiences in tourist traps in London. Imagine a tourist landing in Klagenfurt and having their first meals in Wiener Wald and the SB restaurant at the strandbad.
