A chef who worked at some of the country’s top Michelin-starred restaurants will showcase his cooking at BrewDog’s Cardiff bar next year.

Lee Skeet, who worked as sous chef at Gordon Ramsay’s now-closed Claridge's restaurant and as head chef at Mikael Jonsson’s world-renowned Chiswick eatery Hedone, will host a one-day pop-up serving a special five-course tasting menu at the bar on 22 January.

Skeet ran a similar pop-up at BrewDog Cardiff back in October, which reportedly sold three times the original allocation of tickets – spurring the chef’s decision to return.

Menu highlights

The menu will feature baked oysters with bone marrow and parsley; crab spaghetti and lettuce sauce; scallop with Lapsang Souchong and smoked potato; and roast duck with duck fat carrot and lobster sauce. 

Skeet has hosted a series of pop-up restaurants across the south-west over the past year, at venues including Cornwall's St Ives Brewery, where the menu featured local crab, mackerel and Cornish duck. 

Chef pop-ups

Josh Eggleton, co-owner and chef-patron of the Michelin-starred Pony & Trap in Chew Magna, Somerset, made headlines when he cooked a one-off breakfast​ for diners in a Bristol furniture store showroom in May. 

Last year, Tom Kerridge ran a week-long pop-up residency​ at Harrods in London, where he showcased dishes from his double Michelin-starred pub the Hand & Flowers, Marlow, including spiced monkfish with roasted cauliflower purée; venison chilli with puffed rice; and whisky and rye pudding with Chantilly cream.
