Last weekend, we have had a chance to participate in Novikov Summer Cooking Masterclass, which took place in the peaceful surroundings of Brent Eleigh Walled Garden. It is an incredibly beautiful and quiet place that is just perfect for this event.
Our trip started from Mayfair with a true Italian hospitality.
“Orange or carrot juice?” – asked me beautiful Carmen. “Still water or sparkling? Hot coffee, fresh pastries… We are going to have a very delicious breakfast in Novikov style”.
The atmosphere was great by the kind of hospitality provided. People on a bus were happy, sun was shining and a perfect route with no traffic.
Well, how can we enjoy all this beauty without a glass of cold champagne? Si certo!
Afterwards, Sandie took us around for a tour in this glorious two-acre walled plot, where we could pick all the necessary fruits, fresh vegetables and herbs. Returning armed with all the ingredients, we were ready for our three hours cooking tutorial.
Chefs from Italian restaurant shared some secrets on how to make celery & radishes pinzimonio, spaghetti Alla Chitarra with courgettes and pesto. Oh, and lamb scottadito, which was absolutely delicious.
Let’s see what other guests felt after this event?
I am so happy for being part of this Brent Eleigh Walled Garden Experience: it was one of those "magic moments" that only Novikov Team is able to deliver in London...
I felt - at the same moment - both as a farmer with nice dirty hands and a star followed by a glamorous photographer!
It was perfect Saturday with Novikov Restaurant &Bar, indeed!

I had the most fruitful countryside experiences that included glorious company, charming Novikov staff and exquisite organic vegetables, fruits... coupled with the magnificently skilful Novikov chef. Hospitality was wonderful and the feeling of the visit to the best friend's house could not leave me.
The whole experience was unique, warm and heartfelt! The abundance of food, hospitality and charm, sunshine and smiles surrounded me fully. I would highly recommend it to everyone who is looking to experience the best of British countryside and to enjoy the best fresh organic food”. - Dr Mohammad Foroudi
