Chef chat: Chris & Jeff Galvin

The Michelin-starred chef brothers are the men behind a rather tasty restaurant empire which includes the uber-luxe Galvin at Windows, the ale-appreciating Galvin Hop, and Essex gastropub Galvin Green Man. At the latter, the duo champions the produce of their home county – and offers the delicious ‘Host A Roast’ – a shared family dining concept you can read about here.

We quizzed Chris and Jeff about their favourite food producers and what they’d dish up at their very own Host A Roast…

You’re both huge champions of Essex food producers – who would you cite as your superhero suppliers?
To name a just a few, Colchester Oysters, Marriage’s flour, Great Garnett pig farm, Clark & Son butchers, Anglia Produce, Tiptree jams, Adnams brewery…

If you were to Host A Roast at Galvin Green Man, who would you have round the table?
After (of course) family, someone fun like Peter Kay, a musician like Keith Richards, and a couple of sportspeople like Usain Bolt and Nicola Adams. Plus of course Fred Sirieix, maitre d’ from Galvin at Windows.

What constitutes your perfect Host A Roast menu?
Galvin-cure smoked salmon followed by slow-cooked local lamb shoulder with roast vegetables and herbs, with our famous apple Tarte Tatin for pud.
