Chef Adam Handling is delighted to take the place of guest chef at the Old Fire Station in Tonbridge this October and to celebrate, is giving away two tickets as well as a signed copy of his new recipe book Smile or Get Out of the Kitchen.

A former MasterChef finalist, at only 27 years of age Adam Handling is an inspiringly ambitious chef and a rapidly rising talent to watch.

Within a year of opening his restaurant, Adam Handling at Caxton, in London’s Westminster, he has already taken a coveted three rosettes award from the AA.

He has also been awarded Scottish Chef of the Year 2015, Newcomer Restaurant of the Year in the Food and Travel Reader Awards 2015, and is through to the National Chef of the Year finals taking place on 6 October.

Well known for his love of combining ingredients that are not normally used together and for creating unexpected harmonies, his love of Asian flavours and techniques –particularly Japanese - are showcased throughout his dishes, all of which are spectacularly presented.

Adam will be hosting four special lunch (£65) and dinner (£75) events at The Old Fire Station on Tuesday 20 and Saturday 24 October, where he will be serving his nine-course signature tasting menu and showcasing some of his most popular dishes, including: crab doughnuts; salmon, peas, wasabi and frozen blossoms; celeriac, apple, dates and English truffle; wild bass with Sherry vinegar; burnt beef with BBQ potatoes and Savoy; and Yuzu with meringue, white chocolate and milk ice cream.

Adam’s pop-up restaurant will be the first in an exciting line-up of culinary experiences to be held at the iconic Old Fire Station which will be opening officially on 8 October and is set to be host to a wide range of unique events.
