On entering Le Champignon Sauvage, guests will immediately notice an intimate feeling with a refreshing lack of pretension. The restaurant is warmly decorated with a display of bold modern works of art, generous table sizes and comfortable chairs. Helen’s graciousness, blend of informal conversation and professional discretion, creates a happy atmosphere with unobtrusive seamless service. Combined with David’s culinary confidence and imagination this will give you a most pleasurable experience.
David’s many awards reflect the esteem in which he is held as a chef. Recognised as one of Britain’s leading craftsmen, he is always in the kitchen and has never missed a service. He is also known for his tireless experimentation with anything from the most humble to the most expensive ingredients, and an “ability for making dishes taste more of themselves than the original ingredient”.
His food is a cross between the ‘terroir’ and modern French with very original touches. The menu changes seasonally with great care taken to source the finest local ingredients.
There is also a series of cookery books, demonstrating David’s cooking style and philosophy, enabling both the home and professional cook to recreate the dishes of Le Champignon Sauvage.
