Chef Frederick Forster has joined forces with Miele to launch a pop-up restaurant called “Steam” in London’s Covent Garden, which is totally calorie-neutral.
So, what will be served up? Dishes for the day include beef fillet with beansprout salad, scallop and chorizo brouchette with cucumber and ginger dressing, quail egg cocotte with mushroom and leek fondue and prawn stuffed lemon sole with herb butter sauce.
Between courses, guests will take part in stretching classes to aid digestion, sit on vibrating seat pads to increase calorie burn, and engage in full-on dining workouts
And calorie-neutral doesn’t mean skimping on dessert, as the chef is also offering banana cake with pineapple confit and crème Chantilly to end the meal.
The pop-up eatery is being launched to promote German appliance manufacturer Miele’s new steam-cooking appliances, which will be used to cook the meals.
Steam opens Wednesday, March 13, in Covent Garden with four 90-minute seatings at lunch and dinner. For tickets, email [email protected]
Miele isn’t the only appliance brand to launch innovative dining experiences. Electrolux launched a mobile pop-up restaurant called The Cube, which was set up on rooftops and landmarks around the world, including the arcade of Belgium’s Jubelpark and London’s Royal Festival Hall.
