This dish is Mackerel Mbongo. The mackerel is cured on kombu, flamed and then brushed with a spiced anchovy butter. This sauce is a total fantasy, @chinesebisonread about a sauce in Cameroon using alligator peppercorns and interpreted it in his own way using caramelised squid ink and confit lemongrass served with Daikon from @robinsansai.

 

29 . Oct . 18

Snacks to kick off @ikoyi_london X @theskinnybib X @toufas . Miang of chilli coconut and palm sugar, made with peanuts, cashew, pear and apple and a bergamot flush. Topped with red chilli and toasted coconut. All on a betel leaf, the origin of this snack is a dish served at the royal court. The idea is the Miang captures the spectrum of Thai flavour in a bite. 
Fried Prawn relish spider crab and pork skin. Made with small prawns fried, grilled sweet onions, Thai garlic and white peppercorn. A recipe which predates the prevalent use of chilli in Thai cooking.

29 . Oct . 18

We are closed for Lunch today ahead of tonight’s pre booked event with @ikoyi_london and @theskinnybib. We’ll be open as usual tomorrow for lunch and dinner.

29 . Oct . 18

On 29th October, we’re inviting Jeremy Chan @chinesebison, chef and co-founder of the recently Michelin starred @ikoyi_london and along with @theskinnybib to come cook with @toufasat kiln. Two of the most well travelled and brightest voices in food right now according to us. The menu will be a kind of loose collage of their backgrounds and influences... all cooked over fire and focused on a few of the best examples of produce coming up from cornwall at the moment.

Dishes in development are Raw Lobster & Nam Pla Kuan Egg Yolk, Mackerel with Mbongo & Plantain, Aged Hogget with Gola Pepper & Fermented Scotch Bonnet, Stir Fried Red Curry of Aged Hogget & Green Peppercorn, Ike Jime Mackerel Clay Pot and Greens & Fermented Soy Bean Cake.

3 . October . 18

Do pick up an issue of the ever excellent @codehospitality if you see one. This issue has an interview at Kiln with our co-founder Ben by writer, chef and all round fantastic person @holdsknifelikepen . Thanks to everyone at Code for including us here and for their approach of telling encouraging stories from within restaurant industry. We all need a little encouragement every now and then, don’t we.

29 . Sep . 18

Wild Ginger & Beef Neck Curry from Burma, this dish has been on our menu since day one. We use beef neck that’s aged on the bone which gives us excellent flavour. On daily for lunch.

25 . Sep . 18

Fried Cornish Herring with Sour Chilli on for lunch today. We make the Sour Chilli by charring red and green long chillies over charcoal to give it that smoky flavour then pound together with fermented shrimp, fish sauce and palm sugar.

20 . Sep . 18

On the menu for lunch today we’ve got Kachanaburi Style Jungle Curry of Pollock, Ox Heart Laap with Makhwaen and A Northern Style Turnip, Radish & Herb Salad.

 

18 . Sep . 18

A roasted long pepper and galangal curry with influence from Indonesia returns to our menu today. Pungent, dark, spicy and then citrus from the green peppercorns. This works well with aged Denver from @philip_warren_butchers cooked over charcoal. We first saw this recipe on the wonderful resource that is thaifoodmaster.com and it’s on and off our menus in a few variations since our first day of opening.

12 . Sep . 18

Venison Larb with Makhwaen is back on the menu today. We cook this a little differently to the other laaps you’ve seen on the menu, it’s made in a spicy and aromatic broth taking influence from the northern borders of Thailand.

11 . Sep . 18

We’re opening a Radikon Ribolla magnum to pour BTG tonight. 
From Fruili in the north of Italy this 2010 vintage is aged 2 years in barrels and then a further 3 years in the bottle. With 4 month skin contact the extended skin maceration in old oak barrels give this wine well balanced tannins and acidity with a citrusy finish. We’re thinking Fried Curried Monkfish with this one, the tannins will stand up to the richness of the monkfish livers that are throughout the curry.

6 . Sep . 18

Very slow grilling ike jime prepared mackerel so that the flesh is soft and fatty. The longer is has on the grill the more time for the head meat bones and skin to give they’re good flavour into the flesh.

5 . Sept . 18

Southern Style Curried Aubergine, This style of curry made using turmeric is typically seen in the south of Thailand where it is often more humid, so these types of roots are more prominent. This variation is sweet, spicy and slightly bitter with aroma from Thai Basil.

31 . Aug . 18

We have a wonderful new wine in by Elisabetta Foradori. Her winery is situated on the hills above Trento in the north of Italy. She has created Fontanasanta Manzoni Blanco (a cross between Riesling and Pinot Blanc).This has a sharp freshness that rebounds on mineral textures and apricots.
With this stony minerality and delicate aromas it is a lovely reflection of the craft and care that goes into creating a true biodynamic wine that wishes to reflect its home. On the menu by the glass and bottle.

29 . Aug . 18

Our kitchen is serving 12pm straight through till 9pm today. Slow Grilled Lemon Sole, Pollock with Sour Chilli and Claypot Baked Glass Noodles are just a few bits on the menu.

 

27 . Aug . 18

This is Vignasilan from Vignaioli Contrà Soarda in the hills surrounding Breganze, Veneto in North-East Italy. The grape is Vespaiola which is native to the region and gets its name from the wasps it attracts due to the honey-like aroma it produces in the vineyards. Vignasilan is gently pressed and fermented in steel for 60 days before being bottled unfiltered and aged a further 2 years until release. Thinking this will be a pretty good companion to our spicy and aromatic Dry Red Curry of Monkfish.

24 . Aug . 18

Beautiful produce in today including different types of courgettes, squash, himo tagarashi chillies all grown in Cambridge by @flourishproduce for us. @toufas will be using these in our curries and Thai relishes.

22 . Aug . 18

A monday morning team tasting of a new dish for us, Geng Jin Som, a northern Thai variation on the sour curries we serve often with fish. This is made with a lot of gourami - fresh water fish fermented in rice powder and mahkwan which a relatively of prickly ash. It’s a really interesting balance between the oily tastiness of fried curry and the herbal bitter notes which come from boiling a paste made with a good amount of lemongrass and galangal. In this instance the aged flavour of good duck compliments the muddy funk of fermented fish really well. We’ll continue working on it over the next couple of weeks, as we come towards game season. Hopefully It’ll work really well with things like deer, hare and small game birds.

13 . Aug . 18

Slow grilling horse mackerel this afternoon over charcoal. These are stuffed with a little fragrant turmeric curry paste.

7 . Aug . 18

A phetchaburi style boiled curry with Tamworth from @gothelneyfarmer and flowering holy basil from @flourishproduce . Really into this style of floral and herb led curry pastes at the moment. We’re open normal hours today with plently of space at the bar.

The ike jime mackerel sold out at lunch today so we have raw gilt head bream killed by the same technique from @kernowsashimi this evening. Served with this fragment fish sauce, which we make from fresh green Corriander seed, kaffir leaf and som Saa (a type of Thai citrus).

4 . July . 18

Ike Jime Mackerel in this morning. (We’re all hugely exited about this). Ike Jime is a Japanese technique for separating the spinal column as the fish is killed, this preserves the taste and texture quality of the fish. Very rare that you see it here at all and particularly so with a common fish like mackerel. Thing is, I actually think mackerel is the best thing we can get out of the sea here so should always be treated like this. We will grill them very, very lightly over charcoal and serve whole today.

Perfect pink bream and black bream from @wildharbour . We’re serving these stir fried with a dry fried red curry paste khua kling. Finished with very fragrant lemon basil from Namayasai farm.

22 . Jun . 18

Team briefing on how we make our stalwart Wild Ginger & Beef Neck Curry this morning. Been on the menu from the beginning, although it has been through many recipe transformations. Using @philip_warren_butchers beef neck which is aged on the bone gives us a good collagen richness and excellent quality of flavour from the best native beef from an underrated cut.

19 . June . 18

This is ARKESTRA, our Grenache blend that we bottled with winemaker Philippe Wies a few weeks ago. Bright fruit, high acidity and best friends with Southern Style Dry Pork Curry, one of chef @toufas favourites. On by the glass today alongside 20 others.

18 . Jun . 18

@gothelneyfarmer Tamworth pigs grazing in on a lay of 30 odd herbs, legumes and grasses this afternoon. Yes, pigs graze given the chance. So wonderful to see this project coming to fruition by September they’ll be on an entirely green diet. Fred is a very wonderful and progressive farming talent, hugely lucky to work with him.

Jeeezzz. Tonight we’ve somehow won number 1 restaurant in the Uk.

Chef nick is at @sohofoodfeasttoday making an earthy spicy pungent water buffalo laab with bitter herbs. London’s eating public appetite for weird offaly tastiness amazed us last time out so we’ve taken it up a notch this year.

9 . Jun . 18

Fetembulles Pet Nat by Jean Pierre Robinot. 100% Chenin Blanc. Every bottle will taste different, going down well with Raw Chopped Beef Larb tonight.

8 . Jun . 18

New to the snacks section of the menu, our variation on Par Sam Rot or Three Flavoured Fish. Sour, spicy and sweet this tamarind based sauce is finished with the aromatic zing of Thai basil. Works so well with the dense saline meatiness of @wildharbour Hake.

7 . Jun . 18

It’s back - Northern Style Turnip & Herb Salad. Tokyo turnips from @robinsansai, peanuts, sesame, bitter herbs, lime juice, palm sugar, fresh birds eye chilli, dried prawns and prawn floss. A sour and refreshing salad to pair with our spicier dishes to help balance the overall heat of the meal. We are really excited to start seeing more summer root vegetables to use in these types of dishes.

6 . Jun . 18

We’ve got John Dory in from @wildharbour this morning. We’ll be grilling these whole, coming with a Green Nahm. We’ve also got Highland Beef Sirloin on for lunch served with a fragrant fish sauce.

5 . Jun . 18

Chef @insta_alb has another new dish on this evening. A very simple salad of wild sea herbs and raw asparagus, dressed with a variation on nam prik gapi (a relish made in a pestle with fermented shrimp, Corriander root and Thai shallots). Bright and salty from the sea purslane and rock samphire, then earthy and a little stinky from the gapi and fish sauce. Stinky is good.

2 . Jun . 18

Grills are lit and we’re serving ages hoggett skewers, southern style curried aubergine, slow grilled whole lemon sole and water buffalo larb from midday straight through to 11pm on Fridays. As usual 20 odd wines by the glass and a growing selection of vinyl to listen to. Thanks to @cha_eatery for the photograph

We have some very special ike jime bream being served for dinner service. If you’re not familiar, ike jime is a Japanese technique of separating the brain from the spinal column as the fish is killed. This preserves the quality and texture of the flesh. Chef @toufas is serving it with a very simple fragrant fish sauce, made by steeping sparkling fresh Corriander seed, curry leaf and kaffir from @lukiefarrell . There’s not much of it and it’s not cheap, but it shouldn’t be. Heart warming to have fish and herbs of this quality in the kitchen to play with.

30 . May . 18

Dry Red Curry of Lingcod on for lunch today. This dish is slightly Chinese style with wok fried fish, the paste is made from tamarind, sugar and red chilli making it Sweet, salty and spicy with a deeper flavour from gapi/ shrimp paste. Kaffir Lime and Thai basil in at the end to add aroma.

29 . May . 18

We’ve had some incredible herbs come in today from Sean @goodearthgrowers down in Cornwall. Apple mint, French Sorrel, Rocket Flower, Strawberry mint, sweet cicely, anise hyssop to name a few. These will be going in to our more aromatic dishes today - Jungle Curry of John Dory, Isaan Style Pork Laap and Waterfall Style Cod Salad.

Last week @lukepyper took us to lend a hand in bottling a Grenache made for us by La Petite Baigneuse . In collaboration with @aubert_mascoli we named it Arkestra and it’ll be on by the glass at @kilnsoho and @smokinggoatbar in the next couple of months with a label designed by @personality___crisis . Please support the good cause of following through on daft drunken ideas by buying a bottle when you see one.

A genuine pleasure spending time with the winemaker - Philippe Wies . He’s working from roughly 11h/a in Maury (Languedoc-Roussillon) . Arkestra is a Grenache from two vintages which was aged in old wood foudres made in the winery, which Philippe built himself in the vines to reduce travel for the grapes during harvest. The talented man behind the camera is @benjaminmcmahon

14 . May . 18

Sour Turmeric Curry of Pollock. A southern style dish with a spicy and light broth, the turmeric giving it a vibrant yellow colour, Thai basil adds aroma to the curry. Our fish is line caught from @kernowsashimi.

9 . May . 18

Doors and windows open and we’ve got seven different in house softs made with ingredients from our Kitchen, to help battle the heat.

8 . May . 18

Chef Nick told @robinsansai we wanted lots of nice bitter herbs, some that they grow in their own garden at home. They turned up with all of these - Angelica Leaves, Hogweed, Ground Ivy, Artemisia, Daikon Flowers to name a few, they are going into a new dish we will be trialling at lunch. Herbal Cuttlefish Soup, similar to Gaeng Om it’s a simple dish traditionally eaten in the North of Thailand

4 . May . 18

Today we’ve got a new dish that Head Chef @toufas has been working on - Northern Thai Style Grilled Minced Pork. Fragrant, smokey from the fire, sweetness from the banana leaf and lots of earthy gapi paste. Chef @insta_alb will be giving away a few during service to test if you fancy trying it.

1 . May . 18

Chef @toufas has just made a larb of absolute truth. A isaan style chopped aged beef with a rough paste of roasted galangal, shallot and lemongrass. On for lunch today alongside some stunning wild halibut and slow grilled lemon sole. Always such a treat to eat wild halibut, we don’t see it often but you get a briny, deep sea sweetness thats markedly different to the more coastal fish we work with.

24 . Apr . 18

This pet nat called The Naturalist from Cambridge Road wine makers in NZ is on today along 20 odd other wines by the glass. We’ve got the front and back doors open, creating a air con through draft to be proud of.

5 . Apr . 18

Lemon Sole fresh in this morning from @wildharbour We roast it slowly over charcoal and serve with Nahm Jim Seafood. This paste is made from garlic, shallots, coriander root, green chillies pounded together with kaffir Lime and Clementine juice.

4 . Apr . 18

Ridiculous quality Tamworth bred for us by @gothelneyfarmer being cut by @bobbieonthebeat in our in house butchery at the moment. So good to be able to put this quality of produce out at a good price on our menus.

3 . Apr . 18

2 . Apr . 18

So whilst we were in the midst of Larb Bar on Monday night news filtered through that we had become first independent restaurant to raise £5000 for @actionagainsthunger . We celebrated with awesome wine and larb, of course. Thank you to everyone who has come along and help us raise money, it still blows our minds that you all want to come eat rural Thai food grown in cornwall everyday but we’re really grateful that you do. Couldn’t do it without our amazing team lead by Head Chef Nick @toufas and General Manager Luke @lukepyper cheers guys. Photos by @benjaminmcmahon

Riesling 'Le Dragon' inspired by the local legend of a dragon which fought the sun, lost and retreated to the cave at the top of the Drachenloch vineyard, right where this wine is grown. Josmeyer is an Alsace legend, we are pouring from magnums by the glass this evening. @bittenwritten

31 . Aug . 17

Chefs @zioelias and @insta_albhave a southern style dry curry of chicken liver with bitter herbs on the menu this evening.

30 . Aug . 17

29 . Aug . 17

Bank Holiday Sunday & monday 1pm - 9pm . We always have 20 odd wines by the glass if your up for exploring . Thanks to @niall_russell for the photograph.

27 . Aug . 17

Some stunning pink bream in from kernow sashimi this morning. Also Ike jime killed gilt head bream. Ike Jime is a Japanese technique where the fish is quickly and accurately killed whilst separating the spinal column from the brain. This means the toxins released from the nerve system are less likely to enter the flesh. These fish can then be kept for longer so the umami flavour builds without loss of flesh quality. Once went to a demonstration of the technique years ago with @thecornwallproject and delighted to see it in action.

25 . Aug . 17

Bringing a few more sacrificial lambs from the home collection his morning. Feel bad dropping them off to a short hard life of constant wear, finger prints and being marinaded in spilt orange wine. We've got Mingus, speed glue and shinki and some Congolese psychedelic rumba.

21 . Aug . 17

Stir fried cockles with fragrant lemongrass tops which are grown in Cornwall for us by @goodearthgrowers . We're open 1pm - 8pm straight through today and we have some more fantastic red mullet on the menu. Thanks to @insta_alb for the photograph

20 . Aug . 17

Red Sea Bream Grilled Whole for lunch.

18 . Aug . 17

Laos Style Pollock, Chilli & Roasted Rice Laap on the menu this evening along with Stir Fried Squid with Garlic Chives and a couple of Whole Grilled Lemon Sole if you get in quick! Thanks for the photo @panasianlili

17 . Aug . 17

Jungle Curry of guinea fowl from Phetchaburi. This dish originates from an old trading city south west of Bangkok. First you get the aroma from kaffir lime, then pungency of fermented shrimp paste and finally the heat from the birds eye chilli. The guinea fowl are slow over charcoal before being fried with the curry paste and the each portion of curry is then built and seasoned in the woks over a low heat Tao barbecue.

15 . Aug . 17

Some fantastic plaice being grilled whole this evening. Always stunning fish from @kernowsashimi

14 . Aug . 17

Sundays 1pm - 8pm straight through and we have lobsters, plaice and 20 + wines by the glass. Lovely photo by @forkandstory

13 . Aug . 17

12 . Aug . 17

A few more Cornish native lobsters with curried egg on for lunch today

11 . Aug . 17

And here's the rest of today's lunch menu. My approach would be spiny lobster and red mullet with a glass of Grosset Polish Hill, then the guinea fowl curry with shobbrook Clariot and some stir fried Cornish greens. (And I'd probably arrive at 2.15 so I didn't have to wait).

10 . Aug . 17

... and when the mullet are gone we'll grill these small John Dory and serve with a green chilli dipping sauce.

9 . Aug . 17

Stiff striped mullet, stuffed with a aromatic and herbal paste made with their roe and slow grilled on this evening until we run out...

9 . Aug . 17

The lowly grey mullet, thanks to @kernowsashimi these are sparkling fresh. They have a slightly muddy flavour which means they don't make the grade in a lot of European places but we love to eat them the way Thais prize freshwater catfish and perch for their earthy flavours alongside bitter herbs and very spicy green chillies.

8 . Aug . 17

Sour Turmeric Curry of Cod Cheeks, from Northern Thailand. The fresh Green Lemongrass from @goodearthgrowers in Cornwall is infused into the curry through simmering, giving it a bright citrus aroma.

7 . Aug . 17

Our Head Chef @toufas is just back from Greece and has put on some great seafood dishes this weekend. Steamed cockles, Stir Fried Squid, Wild Mussels and Whole Grilled John Dory are on the menu today.

5 . Aug . 17

Couple of our favourite winemakers anton klopper and tom shobbrook came by for lunch with @winemakersclub and @bittenwritten last week. Anton brought some mind expanding new stuff with him, which was cool. Excited about these landing on the list in a couple of months.

5 month Tamworths at Fred Price's beautiful farm in Somerset. Really interesting progressive farming using as much of the mixed arable land he has to keep them on a high protein natural outdoor diet as long as possible.

22 . May . 17

Stir Fried Aged Duck. We've started taking Peking Aylesbury cross ducks from warrens farmers. They're hung for 3/4 weeks much longer than normal for a deep flavour. Then we stir fry them with a southern Thai dry chilli galangal and fermented shrimp paste alongside betel leaves and snake beans.

10 . May . 17

These fresh shiitake mushrooms are grown for us by @goodearthgrowers in Cornwall. They place spores inside decaying tree logs and then harvest them which is a weird thing to see. But very fresh mushrooms have a remarkably lighter, brighter flavour than older ones.

10 . May . 17

Slow grilled Striped Red Mullet stuffed with a fragrant curry paste over charcoal. We suggest eating the flesh and roe then suck the head meat like a prawn. These are on this evening, priced by weight. They were in the sea this time yesterday.

New dish today. Five Spice Duck & White Soy Claypot Noodles. Based on a yarowat road Thai x Chinese hybrid@lukiefarrell took us too last time we were in Bangkok. We simmer a five spice broth with all the good parts of the ducks innards along a wonderful aged white soy, so you have a fragrant gravy. Then roast in the claypot with greens for sweetness. We then use a very fine Japanese brown vinegar and ginger for fragrance. Been trailing it for a while now but finally got it right for this weekend.

Our Aged Lamb & Cumin Skewer. High definition centre fold money shot by @allthingsmeaty

17 . Mar . 17

An Isaan style grilled beef nam tok. We get warrens farmers to select chuck eye from their native breeds for us then we heavily age it. The result is deeply flavourful beef with enough texture to work in a nam dtok along side the rural paddy field flavours of fermented freshwater fish, little mouse shit chillies and bitter herbs. We make ours with a mix of lime and lemon juice, as we noticed the little key likes they use in eastern Thailand kinda taste like lemons. Thanks to @themeatcheat for the action shot.

This is what a month or so worth of Tamworth pigs for Kiln looks like at warrens in Cornwall. These are bred and finished to our spec which means we can start the best quality best animals. Then our in house butcher makes sure we're using every bit of every animal, so we're able to pass that value on to the people who come an eat with us.

1 . Feb . 17

And a mind blowing meal of catfish Laap, maeng daa nam prik, fish roasted in banana leaf with lemongrass and chilli and dancing shrimp. Brilliant end to a day in Isaan with @fah_skybang lovely family

28 . Jan . 17

And this is the catch: dancing shrimp for laap salads, catfish for grilling, smaller perch like fish for pla raa (a freshwater type of fish sauce) and mud crabs also to be fermented and pounded through salads. Astonishing how all these characteristic flavours of Isaan cooking are derived from the microcosm of life which surrounds a muddy pond. Awesome to have @fah_skybang showing us how they make all work, @lukiefarrell 's teachings on Thai plants, @benjaminmcmahon snapping pics and now our sous chef @ianwoody85 is gonna cook.

20 . Jan . 17

Awesome review in @telegraph on Sunday written by Keith Miller. "It's absolutely coherent and true to itself. Dishes are two or three flavours, European tastes (notably lashings of lemon balm) work perfectly alongside the sour-sweet-salty-spicy flavours of south-east asia"

29 . Oct . 16

Aged Lamb & Cumin Skewers. Thanks to the special work the guys at Warrens Farmers in Cornwall do, we can take whole Hogget which has been heavily fattened and then can be aged for 5 weeks or more. The extra fat cover protects the flesh during aging and keeps the texture soft on deeper flavour meat. There's nothing else like aged lamb fat.
