HotBox and BOB’s Lobster have come together to create a collaborative at-home box in support of The Passage, a charity that provides people who are street homeless with support to transform their lives.
Created by HotBox Executive Head Chef Lewis Spencer and BOB’s Lobster Founder Rob Dann, the six course menu (priced at £80 for two) donates £10 from each box to The Passage’s frontline work with London’s homeless community and also marks the first in a new series of supper club events.
Showcasing the best of both restaurants, HotBox’s modern Shoreditch smokehouse and BOB’s Lobster’s seafood, from the people behind Bedales of Borough. The full menu includes
Toasted hazelnut, scorched orange & olive oil dressing
Lobster & Crayfish Croquettes
Old bay mayo
Loaded Bone Marrow
Ale-grilled onions, lemon zest & thyme salt on sourdough
Sashimi tuna, wasabi guacamole, chipotle crema & sesame seeds
in a crispy wonton shell
Smoked Brisket Tacos
elote corn, arbol & chipotle salsa, red pepper salsa with corn
New York Cheesecake
Burnt peach compote
In addition to the six courses, there is the option of a pre-mixed BOB’s Lobster Margarita for two or a bottle of Laurent Perrier La Cuvée to add to your order. Deliveries of the HotBox x BOB’s Lobster at home box will be made between 9am and 6pm on Wednesday 7th April, with the cut off for ordering midday on Friday 2nd April.
Alongside the food, everyone purchasing the box will be offered the opportunity to join The Passage’s very first virtual Supper Club on the 8th of April at 7pm. The webinar will be hosted by The Passage’s Director of Services and New Developments, Jenny Travassos, who will be joined by Rob Dann of BOB’s Lobster and Lewis Spencer of HotBox and will take the format of an informal chat about all things hospitality, with information on how The Passage is helping London’s homeless community. Once lockdown lifts, The Passage will be continuing its Supper Club series with in-person events and new collaborators.
The limited number of boxes are available to purchase today from the Bedales of Borough site at www.wineshop.bedaleswines.com.
