A Star is Born (II)

May 30, 2019

As Michelin would say, here’s a place that’s worth going out of your way for.  The thriving Simon Rogan led Lake District Dining Revolution – led by The Lake Road Kitchen and the Old Stamp House – now has a third leg.  Wabi Sabi (a Japanese expression meaning Nothing is Perfect, Nothing is Permanent, Nothing is Completed).  A form of Kaizen – continuous improvement.

So meet a new Culinary Star – BING (and his wife Cara).

A dreamer, an artist, a scientist, a magician, a chef, an innovator, a creator, and a graduate of Lancaster University!!!!

His restaurant has no windows, hardly any tables (12 seatings per night), no staff except the two owners, no razzamatazz, no precedent.  Japanese flavours, Lakeland produce, simple presentation, complex taste, art and science – Japanese food has never tasted so ‘accessible’, so ‘local’ and so real.

Bing is humble, passionate, focussed, disciplined and committed.  And he delivers a beautiful game (if Pep Guardiola were a chef, he’d be Bing!).

Give Wabi Sabi a go – it’s worth the drive!!
