Course Description

HIDE restaurant's executive chef Ollie Dabbous teaches you how to make some of the favourite appetisers from the menu at HIDE, including charcuterie and bread.

"The appetisers we serve at the start of the meal encapsulate our approach to cooking. They offer a bold minimalism, a sophistication through simplicity." – Ollie Dabbous (co-founder and executive chef at HIDE)

By the end of this course, you will have created some home-cured charcuterie, freshly baked bread, a warm comforting broth with crystal clear flavour, and some crisp ice-cold lettuce served with a moreish dip. Ollie will guide you through wine pairings to enhance and maximise the flavour of each dish.

During this course, Ollie will take you behind the scenes of his Michelin-starred restaurant HIDE in Piccadilly. He will walk you through some of his signature starter dishes, demonstrating ways to impress your guests with humble everyday ingredients, and exemplifying his ethos of sophistication through simplicity.

  • how to make the gem lettuce and cured meats appetiser

Meet Ollie Dabbous

Ollie Dabbous - Food & Drink
Ollie Dabbous is the co-founder and executive chef of HIDE restaurant in Piccadilly. Previously, he was the Michelin-starred chef/owner of the highly esteemed Dabbous, famed for its stripped-back fine dining and industrial decor.

Dabbous closed in 2017 after five years to allow Ollie and the team to concentrate their energies on HIDE, which opened in 2018 to great critical acclaim. HIDE was given a coveted five stars in the Evening Standard, was named a GQ restaurant of the year, and was awarded a Michelin star…all within six months of opening.

HIDE is a restaurant and bar, created in collaboration with Hedonism Wines. Set over three floors, flooded with natural daylight and enjoying views across Green Park, HIDE offers stunning food and drink in a refined but relaxed setting. It regularly serves more than 500 covers per day.

Ollie says: “The food I cook is entirely product-driven, taking the very best ingredients, questioning why we like them, and then highlighting those qualities in the most organic, restrained manner. It is food that respects the integrity of the ingredient and the toil that goes into producing them…the challenge and possibilities were too compelling to deny.”

Previously Ollie worked at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, Hibiscus, Mugaritz, Noma, L’Astrance, The Fat Duck, WD-50 and Pierre Gagnaire, before returning to London to take the position of head chef at Texture.
