We’re delighted to be hosting a residency by Oliver Rowe, acclaimed chef and author of Food for All Seasons, who will be bringing the cuisine of his legendary London café, Konstam, to our space in January 2017.

“Konstam” is an anglicised version of a long-established Jewish surname, and emphasises Oliver’s belief that food and family are interlinked. Its comeback at Calvert 22 will bring a menu of modern seasonal sandwiches, soups, salads and other dishes drawing on the ingredients and traditions of eastern European cooking.

The residency will also feature local handmade cakes by Henrietta Inman, pickles by Newton & Pott and sausages by Cobble Lane Cured.

Along with the residency's normal opening hours, Oliver will be hosting supper clubs with guest chefs including Olia Hercules and Alex Hely-Hutchinson of 26 Grains, and film nights with Alissa Timoshkina of Kino Vino

About Konstam

Chef Oliver Rowe originally opened his café Konstam in 2003 in King’s Cross, and reopened it as the restaurant Konstam at the Prince Albert, which featured on BBC Two’s Urban Chef.

Konstam’s ultra-local menu, inspired by provincial European cooking, and its simple, well-designed interior influenced a generation of cafés and restaurants in today’s food landscape.
