World Dinners with Ben Spalding

Omar joined fellow chef Ben Spalding in the kitchen at Redhook Restaurant in London, for the Spanish chapter of Ben’s World Dinners series. Omar and Ben collaborated for one night at this exclusive event, offering their 31 guests the best of Spanish cooking. Ben wanted to work with Omar for this unique event, as he believes Omar to be "one of a handful of exceptionally talented people championing Spanish cooking in London".

Omar said of the event: "It was a great experience working with Ben at his World Dinners Evening, he is such a talented and creative young chef and it was brilliant to see first hand how other chefs work in the kitchen. It was great to work together to create such interesting and innovative dishes!"

The evening was a roaring success, with dishes such as Braised Iberian pork cheeks with saffron potatoes, and Langoustine tail, fennel in various ways, pureed corn and fried lettuce.
