Name: Chris Knights
Title: Group Executive Chef for Young’s & Geronimo
Favourite dish currently on your menu: My most recent favourite dish was at the Builders Arms in Chelsea: a simple but delicious Cornish crab on toast. The flaky white crab meat is really simply mixed with coriander, a squeeze of lime juice, avocado and some seasoning. Sitting on top of a thick slab of crunchy sourdough toast, which was also topped with brown crab meat mixed with crème fraiche. Simple, seasonal & delicious.
Best time of year for food: Honestly? Any time – our fields, farms & seas always have so so much to offer: spring for asparagus, Jersey Royals and wild garlic; summer for cherries and sardines; autumn for wonderful wild birds, like grouse & pheasant or winter for Jerusalem artichokes and forced rhubarb.
