Fergus spent the majority of his life as a passionate home chef, until his late 20's when stepped into a professional kitchen for the first time. He quickly got hooked on the buzz of a busy service, but also to need to explore and experiment far more then what is practical in a typical restaurant. Toward the end of 2019 he decided do induce his own baptism of fire, by launching a supper club serving a taster menu of experimental dishes in his home town.
Alkemio is actually the Esperanto spelling for alchemy, Esperanto was a language that was constructed out of the world's languages and had no real home. Fergus aims to take inspiration from cuisine across the world, combining ingredients, flavour profiles and formats in ways you have not seen before, all the while elevating each dish with technique and presentation to make it unforgettable!
Chilli, acidity, fermentation!
What to expect at Fergus's place
Excellent cooking, full of fascinating textures and tasty flavours. Great experience. Recommended
Really enjoyable and excellent food. The evening was a massive success
What a fantastic evening! Fergus created unforgettable flavour pairings which were oddly delicious - honestly, out of this world! We can't wait to go back and try his new creations when there is a new menu! Thank you Fergus and team for such a lovely evening.
Great event, delicious & experimental food, well priced!
