Executive Chef at The Langham, London, Chris King, in consultation with Michel Roux Jr, has launched SNAX, a new tapas style menu at the ‘World’s Best Bar’, Artesian. SNAX marks the first menu offering in collaboration with Chez Roux Ltd since The Langham, London’s recent announcement of the extended partnership with the Roux family. Conceived as small sharing plates, Chris was inspired by ingredients from the recent ‘Surrealism’ Artesian cocktail menu with several elements from the cocktails replicated in key dishes.

The interactive element of the menu, where guests select their choice of dishes from a waiters printed order pad, also creates an interactive and playful environment and ensures that the experience evoked by the cocktails are matched in the food offering. Artesian_Snacks_20151754 low res SNAX comprises of 14 dishes that demonstrate the creative vision and playful presentation characteristic of King’s style. Eclectic dishes range from ‘hearts of palm, vadouvan curry, dates’, ‘blue prawns, coconut, avocado’, ‘calamari, sweetcorn, furikake to ‘seaweed-sesame sablés salted caramels’. 36 month parmiggiano low res As Chris explains: "Creating SNAX was an inspiring process and an opportunity to incorporate ingredients in different ways. I like to challenge the notion that certain ingredients are limited to food and others to drink. This new menu has been the first in my role as Executive Chef at The Langham and was a lot of fun to create. We are looking forward to providing that little bit of ‘X’ factor with SNAX."
