As many of you well know, we host numerous special events at Salon over the year, from collaborations with guests chefs – Gill Meller, Anna Tobias, Josh Eggleton – to name but a few. Below you’ll find a list of what’s coming in our calendar and a few things that Nick is up to around town.
We are super excited to welcome Jon Parry into the Salon kitchen for two night of cuisine bending, experimental and thought provoking cooking this November.

We’ve known Jon for around 4 years, when a mutual friend told us about this chef friend of hers that had buried some butter in a boggy part of Hampstead Heath, somewhat illegally. That sounded like the kind of madness we could get on board with. Since then, we’ve always admired his approach to hyper seasonal and local ingredients and his dedication to the kitchen. For Jon, cooking isn’t just a job, it really is a way of life, and he lives and breathes it. Much to the annoyance of his girlfriend, the perfect day off for Jon is spent foraging in the Buckinghamshire countryside, making cheese in the Mash Inn’s cellar and fermenting his own soy sauce.
Jon cut his teeth with Tom Aiken at his eponymous two star Chelsea restaurant, moving to acclaimed Highgate gastro pub, the Bull & Last, in 2009 as Sous, before being tempted to Clapham by Adam Byatt in 2012. With a semi-final placing on Masterchef professionals in 2014 also under his belt, Jon is now firmly ensconced at The Mash Inn in Radnage (near Marlow, Bucks) where he has free reign to explore and experiment with his unique approach to food.
What can you expect from Nick and Jon’s collective food brain? Well, it’s going to be a wild, foraged and bizarre ride to the farside of ingredient combinations, delicious flavours and possibly some butter exhumed from the swampy depths!! We guarantee you wont have eaten anything quite like it!

On Monday 13th November, we are very excited to announce that we will open the Salon Wine Store, stocked to the brim with low intervention, artisan wines, spanning the new and old world.
Guests will be able to drink instore, take home or bring bottles into Salon’s downstairs bar and restaurant situated directly next door, for a small corkage fee. The kitchen has created a menu of dishes to accompany the extensive new wine list including, Smoked aubergine, black onion and seed crackers; Slow cooked rabbit ragu, with house made pappardelle; and Girolles, roast chestnut mushrooms, fresh coco beans, and Berkswell.
Salon have worked closely with their suppliers, Indigo, Les Caves de Pyrene and Under the Bonnet Wines to curate a vast collection of over 100 sparkling, red and white wines for the store, all with a focus on low intervention, small scale producers who farm their parcels with care and hand harvest their grapes. Bottles start at £8. The Salon team will be on hand, well versed to recommend bottles to suit every taste, and a handful of tables and chairs will be outside in the market, for guests to enjoy a glass or two. Looking ahead to the new year, Salon will also be inviting wine experts and producers to the store for talks, tastings and collaborations.
Tuesday – Friday: 12:00 – 20:00
