Chicama’s food concept is centered on exploring the costal cooking of Peru and enhancing it through more contemporary techniques and flavours. We focus on the wonderful array of seafood and vegetables available to us and go about creating Peruvian inspired dishes of excellence with them; all of the time exploring the umami flavours, reminiscent of the Nikkei and the abundant, vibrant fruits and vegetables from the Amazon.
We deal directly with a small community of Cornish fishermen whose families have been working the coastlines of the South West for generations. This relationship is an intrinsic one, for we are given first pick of each day’s haul, which is then sent directly to us from Cornwall for our chefs to prepare. Our team of chefs come from some of the most successful restaurants in London such as Chiltern Firehouse, Roka, Zuma and Sushi Samba, as well as Verjus and Ellsworth in Paris
