Wondering where to have a Brixton Sunday lunch?

Then think about Market House. It may be better known for its music, but MasterChef runner up Steve Kielty is bringing his Spinning Plates to Coldharbour Lane.

A man of many talents, the south Londoner is also a DJ, sound engineer and musician.

His two main passions in life are food and music.

He’s definitely a meat and two veg man, but pulled off a pea-based vegetarian dish in the quarter finals described by MasterChef’s John Torode as “very, very clever”.

Kielty says: “There is definitely a similarity between what I do for a living and my cooking.

“As a sound engineer I am always dealing with both the scientific and creative sides of music and music production.

” I think this is also reflected in the food I like to cook. I love thinking up new dishes, or thinking of ways to play with flavour combinations and textures of classics.

“I enjoy the science and precision involved in the more modernist style of cooking, but still love the simplicity of good ingredients and classic cookery.

And that’s exactly what’s happened. Steve is serving dinner at Market House every Sunday from 1pm. It’s advisable to book, because when it’s gone its gone.

On the menu will be slow-cooked lamb shoulder; wild mushroom and chestnut bake; slow-cooked ox cheek; 16-hour pork belly. Accompaniments will include roast potatoes, spiced red cabbage, baby carrots, parsnip puree and homemade gravy.
For alters. there’s spiced apple crumble and homemade custard.
