Something’s cooking in Clerkenwell: Michelin star chef Adam Gray, in partnership with the Bourne & Hollingsworth Brasserie and Bar, is launching B&H Kitchen today, a new cooking school for Londoners. Situated on the top floor of the B&H building, which houses the brasserie and bar, the loft-like space is outfitted with British Standard cabinets and has six catering stations, a demonstration bench, and a communal dining table. In addition to offering cooking courses, the B&H kitchen will include pairing sessions of food, wine and cocktails, a Bourne & Hollingsworth trademark. For more info, go to B&H Kitchen.
