Kudu, a new 46-cover restaurant on Queens Road, Peckham is set to open on Friday, 12th January 2018. Kudu is the first restaurant from couple Amy Corbin and Patrick Williams, who met through their love of food. At Kudu Patrick will head up the kitchen and Amy will run front of house.
South African Patrick started his career in Cape Town’s renowned La Colombe and went on to work at Camphors at Vergelegen. On moving to London he joined Robin Gill’s team firstly at The Manor and, then, more recently at sister restaurant, Paradise Garage as a Sous Chef. Amy, whose father is a successful London restaurateur, grew up working in the industry and has always dreamed of opening her own.
The seasonal menu at Kudu will feature locally sourced, home grown and foraged ingredients. It will also draw inspiration from Patrick’s South African roots. Dishes will include Kudu Bread, cooked in a copper pot and served with melted lardon or seafood butter and Mussel potjie pot with seaweed gnocchi. In addition, familiar dishes will be given playful twists, such as Onion and beer tarte tatin with goats curd and Pigs head tortellini with hay bone broth and crispy onions.
