Luciana Berry takes over Mortimer House for a Brazilian feast

Luciana Berry takes over Mortimer House for a Brazilian feast

Mortimer House has been getting some interesting chefs in for residencies and that looks set to continue as ex-Masterchef Professional Luciana Berry (she reached the semi-final in 2014) takes over in February. 

Berry was brought up in Salvador before moving to London to set up a catering business that specialised in Brazilian food. Taking over the fifth floor for a month, she'll be serving a six-course tasting menu that's a contemporary take on Brazilian cuisine using traditional ingredients. .. 

On the menu is:

  • Caipriinha de Cajú - Cashew Fruit Caipirinha
  • Pāo de queijo levemente trufado - Cassava, Cheese and Truffle Dough
  • Bacalhau na tapioca suflada - Salt cod with tapioca
  • Polvo à vinagrete - Octopus Sala from the beaches in Bahia 
  • Escondidinho - Cured Beef with cassava mousseline
  • Moqueca com abará e vatapá - Brazilian Fish Stew served with steamed black-eye bean parcels, smoked prawns and bread porridge, with a sharing plate of grilled Okra, Cassava, Bean Puree and Cumari Chilli Salsa
  • Mousse de Coco com Manga Palmer - Coconut Mousse with Brazilian Palmer Mango

That menu does sound quite intriguing. On top of the above, because the residency coincides with the Rio Carnaval, they'll have a weekend of celebrations (including live samba music) from 21-22 Feb.
