Chef James Sherwin returns for ‘Flavours of Shropshire’ Pop-up
A Shropshire chef, who became known for his regional pop-up restaurant events and a stint on a national TV cooking show, is returning to the popular pop-up format in Shrewsbury after a gap of two years.
James Sherwin has been invited by Ginger & Co, Shrewsbury’s newest independent coffee shop, to stage a series of pop-up restaurant events at the venue throughout June and July. James burst onto the culinary scene in 2014, when he successfully competed on Channel 4’s ‘The Taste’, hosted by Nigella Lawson, and set the region’s taste buds alight with his ‘James-in-a-space’ pop restaurants at venues across the Midlands.
James, known for his challenging flavour combinations and passion for cooking with seasonal local ingredients, is a regular chef-demonstrator at food festivals throughout Shropshire and the Midlands and is also the new sous chef at Shrewsbury’s House of the Rising Sun restaurant.
His first Ginger & Co pop-up, ‘Flavours of Shropshire’, will take place on Wednesday June 8, offering a seven-course taster menu focussing on spring and early summer Shropshire flavours. Further ‘pop-ups’ will follow at the coffee shop, in The Square, on June 22 and July 20th
