Colette brings home-style cooking and a new deli to Chelsea

What: Colette

In a nutshell: Home-style cooking in Chelsea

Summing it all up: Colette is a traiteur and deli on Fulham Road that's looking to bring a sense of home cooking to Chelsea. With an ex-Ritz chef in charge they'll be serving up a seasonal menu and running a deli for take outs.

The low-down

Coming to Chelsea is a new gourmet traiteur and delicatessen that's looking to provide a real home-from-home experience on the food they're selling. They're focusing on fresh, sustainable meals to take home and there's a deli attached. 

They say they're aiming for a vintage feel with a long American walnut counter and speckled terrazzo floor. It's all about creating as warm a welcome as possible. 

In charge of the kitchen is Chris Hill, most recently Premier Sous Chef at The Ritz Hotel, and planned for his menu are:

  • Veal blanquette and chestnut gnocchi with glazed button onions
  • Truffle tortellini with celeriac
  • Twice-baked cheese soufflé served with poached apricots and walnuts
  • Seared tuna, pickled turnip and edamame
  • Confit duck, quinoa and shaved vegetables
  • Smoked chicken, coriander, mango and cashew
  • Israeli couscous with feta, sumac and pomegranate
  • For dessert, caramelised apple tart and Paris Brest

Alongside those, whilst the weekend specials will include Celeriac and mushroom Wellington, Roast Black Leg chicken and grilled lobster with a Thai dressing.

As for the deli, that will feature more dishes to take home, including:

  • Beef tartare and home-made scotch eggs

All that plus sliced charcuterie, smoked salmon, pots of caviar and fresh truffles, fine wines, artisan cheeses and luxury chocolates.
