A huge thanks to all of you who voted for us in The Observer Food Monthly Awards 2018. We were runner up in the Best Places to Drink category which we were absolutely thrilled about - especially since we recently extended the bar and made it even better! It is an amazing effort by our team to have created somewhere so unique in Colchester loved by so many. THANK YOU

MEET EWAN

head chef
creates beautiful menus
cooks delicious food for the bar and restaurant
mentors his team
is a dab hand with pastry
this is what he has to say.....
 
What do you do in your spare time Ewan?
At the moment, a lot of DIY and preparation for our first baby! Other than that, anything outdoors. 

What happened on your first day here?
After a week of prep, we opened for our first service on Tuesday 25 February. It was very busy and we were all fairly nervous but very excited about opening. 

What dish are you most proud of that you've created here?
Probably the Hendrick's Gin and Mint Pannacotta with Cucumber Spaghetti. The idea came because we were in a period when the seasons didn't offer up a lot of ingredients to play with. If you want the recipe, buy the cookbook, available in CST!

Who is your favourite music artist?
Can't say I have a favourite but currently listening to a lot of Leon Bridges. 

What restaurant do you visit most?
Darsham Nurseries near Yoxford in Suffolk. Does lovely inventive small plates, always a delicious meal. 

Who is your ideal dinner guest?
Kelly Slater (surfer)  - always been a hero of mine since I was young and he would have some great stories.

What's your favourite ingredient?
Tomatoes - so many different varieties and flavours. I also love growing my own.

If you could eat anywhere, where would it be?  
Le Manoir Aux Quat'Saison in Oxfordshire. I have always loved Raymond Blanc and have followed Le Manoir for years.
