A musical and physical feat: Colin Stetson

The gratitude muscle

O

N

ne of the main draws of live shows is the diversity and breadth of art that we can witness. One night might see the expert interplay of grizzled old hands in tune with one another in a band for example, whereas another evening might brim with a more anarchic and vital experimental energy from an artist on their first large scale tour. Colin Stetson live resides in the skilled musician nook of performance, with a pure, stark show that sees him playing saxophone with no looping or backing of any kind. His Duke of York's concert on Sunday 1st September opened with the most traditional looking saxophone from his assortment, from which emanated a ghostly shimmering melody hovering over a more rhythmic underpinning in 'Spin Drift'. You should check out this video (bit.ly/2iVHZFV) to give you an idea of the sound. It is certainly a physical feat of circular breathing to create such a wealth of tones, but the beauty of the beguiling soundworld is the most important thing for me to convey. This is not a case of twiddling technicality over melody, but rather a rare fusion of musicality aligned with an impressive physical performance. Stetson straddled a massive bass saxophone for the astonishing 'Judges', a thunderous, plodding elephantine brass beast of a song (bit.ly/2eqYe9C), whereas 'Between Water And Wind' was a more percussive, Immigrant Song channeling rattle of a number. The hour long concert was gripping throughout, and Stetson's ability to hold a large crowd's attention, with their myriad tastes and predilections was testament to the quality of a singularly brilliant performer. Catch him live as soon as possible.

ever forget how privileged we are to live in a technological age. Like all other millennials I’ve been brought up on tales of the mysterious world that preceded our generation. According to legend it was a time before the internet wrapped humanity up in its embrace and brought us all so much together. At first I heard the words as yet another lecture about the entitlement of youth and our comparative lack of gratitude. But eventually, after an unending barrage of stories about trawling through the library to find info, or sticking to an arrangement to meet rather than being able to text to cancel at the last minute, I began to hear what they were saying. Compare the expectations of past and present. In today’s technology we expect a streamlined intuitive format that is easy­ to­use and requires minimum effort. However, in the past the comparatively inefficient technology was not begrudgingly accepted, instead it was joyously embraced as a pioneering portal into a new age for humanity. Those there at the dawn of technology were born into the darkness that was then eventually lit up by the progress of the 20th century. But for us, those caught on the cusp of the millennium, we were born into a world lighter and brighter than that of our parents. We’ve never known the same period of ‘darkness’ as them, and as such we have fallen into a foreseen yet understandable trap. Desensitisation. Daily exposure to the only world we have ever known normalises even the grandest achievements and makes us forget that we are indeed surrounded by grand and marvellous achievements! Fortunately, the cure can be summarised in a single world: gratitude. If we constantly exercise the gratitude muscle in our brain we will constantly stimulate the part of our consciousness that generates the essence of awe. We can make sure to remain in that magical awe­inspiring world simply by repeatedly reminding ourselves how privileged we are to live in a time where marvels are all around us and continually being produced.

TO P TA B L E

PASCERE

I

n the shortest of times Brighton newcomer Pascere has not only won the hearts of local food lovers but has also garnered rave reviews in the national press. I went along to meet owner Amanda Menahem and Chef Johnny Stanford, not only to taste their food but also to find out more about the people behind this success.

AMANDA MENAHEM

Opening a restaurant takes you from being a serious food lover to a serious player on the other side of the table. Why? I couldn’t not. I spent years admiring venues and noticing the details that make places work. I spent years observing what can go wrong from the customer perspective. I have a strong customer service ethic and a desire to make a difference. This goes back to my early years as a barmaid and years spent in retail management. I felt a strong urge to put this into practice. It’s crazy, a risky, difficult business but something I needed to do. How long was Pascere in planning? Was it easy to find the right chef ? In my head, years! In reality about a year and a half. There are so many fantastic chefs with many different styles. At the heart of my vision is striving for perfection and being the best we can be, but not in a stuffy way, after all, a burger can be a perfect burger! I just needed to find a chef who had the my same high standards, bought into my vision and someone I would enjoy working with. So much is about personality and trust. I was incredibly lucky to find Johnny. How involved were you in the design of the restaurant? I was a total control freak! I pored over and chose every detail. Has your previous experience been useful? I found myself drawing upon my business experience more than I thought I would. My strong hands­on understanding of how to recruit, develop and build a team has also been extremely useful. Now that we are open I know what analyses we need, what reports to look at and the need to control and manage costs. I won’t always get it right but having that experience definitely helps. I do also recognise that there are huge gaps in my knowledge having never opened a restaurant before. Luckily I have a capable and supportive team. What is your earliest food memory? My biological father is from Israel and my earliest food memory is eating freshly made falafel in pitta on Tel Aviv beach and the Indian restaurants of Brick Lane. I still love these foods! How involved are you in the dishes that your chef creates? Early on I described what I was trying to achieve and the kind of dishes I wanted on the menu. Some of these ideas were pretty specific. On holiday in Seville I had amazing roast chicken croquettas and so I wanted these, Johnny’s version is spot on. I also wanted a cheesecake and Johnny created our popular strawberry cheesecake. But most of the menu is Johnny’s creation, I admire his creativity and trust his judgment. I think we will work in this way very effectively, bringing our own perspectives to the table. Luckily Johnny is a delight to work with. My focus is achieving a good balance between the refined offering at dinner with simpler dishes at lunch and the

popular small plates menu. We’re already discussing new dishes…. You are passionate about wine Definitely! There is so much to learn and that’s what excites me. I am studying the Italian Wine Scholar with Sussex Wine School now. I took French Wine Scholar last year and loved it but it took over my life, I’m hoping that it will be a little easier this time. In a burgeoning restaurant scene you seem to have already garnered much praise, to what do you accredit that? It’s been a wonderful reception but the perfectionist in me will always be cautious. I do believe you are only as good as your last plate of food. The combination of ambience, elegance and warmth alongside spot on food and wine will make it a winning formula – but only time will tell. What kind of people are already coming to Pascere? It really varies, younger, older, hipster, fashionista, yummy mummy, business folk, families… what they all have in common is an appreciation for a nice environment, great food and wine. Are you driven by gaining awards and stars? The most important thing to me is that customers love it. That’s enough for me. I think awards are great for the team. I’d love Johnny to get some recognition for his culinary skill, as he deserves it, he’s humble and talented but also driven. How much of your life is taken up by being a restaurateur? It’s all consuming. Even when I’m not there (which is hard – like leaving a baby!) I’m thinking about it. Sum up Pascere in just ten words Elegant, luxurious, refined, warm, family, decadent, fabulous food and wine.

JOHNNY STANFORD Were you a fussy eater as a child? No, my mum made sure of that. I ate most things although I hated peas. We didn’t have extravagant food growing up, so discovering new things was always exciting and interesting. How old were you when you discovered you had a love of food? I was about 7or 8. I used to help my grandma making Sunday lunch. She’s an incredible cook. Still an inspiration to me today. When did you decide that food would become your career? I knew from high school I wanted to do something with food. I didn’t really have a concept of what a chef was – I just wanted to cook. I didn’t do well in my food technology GCSE, my teacher said I


004_005_LS846_toptable_Layout 1 08/09/2017 09:50 Page 2

had the right temperament to be a chef and my mum agreed. I’m still not sure what they meant by that! Was there a single moment of realisation, a dish or a restaurant that played a part in that decision? There was no fairytale moment or epiphany, it just happened. I always wanted to do this, something I enjoyed and was good at. When I got my first job I knew I’d made the right decision. Did you follow the conventional path of catering college? Yes, I attended catering college in Manchester as well as working nights and days off in restaurants. It’s so important to have hands­on experience as college can only prepare you for so much. Where was your first professional post? An event catering company called le petit repas. It was fun but what I really longed for was a position in a restaurant kitchen. After a year I took my first job in a restaurant. The rest has been a blur of highs and lows, sleep deprivation, amazing new ingredients and having fun cooking great food with some amazing people. Which chefs have been most influential in your cooking, if any? There are chefs I’ve worked for who’ve influenced my cooking and helped shape who I’ve become, and

“ Focused,

driven, refined, comfortable, fun, elegant, humble, best, team, ever ”

some have become good friends: Paul Kitching, John Rudden, Matt Gillan and Ian Swainson. There are chefs I respect who influence my thinking: Grant Achatz, Pete and Johnray Sanchez, Simon Rogan… the list is pretty endless!

What is your favourite dish and your favourite ingredient? That’s a hard one. It’s like trying to choose your favorite album and song! But the first ingredient that comes to mind is scallops. I love all shellfish but scallops are definitely a favorite. A favorite dish is a shellfish bisque served with treacle soda bread served at restaurant in Dublin: The Green Hen. The only dish I’ve ever ordered twice. How important is sourcing the right ingredients? Finding good quality ingredients, and sourcing sustainably is very important – second nature to us as chefs. We cook to showcase and respect an ingredient and its provenance. I like to use suppliers and producers who have the same passion as I do for my cooking. It’s disrespectful to do anything else. Seasonality keeps things exciting and interesting. The fact that some ingredients are only available for a short amount of time means you have to do something special. I look forward to a change of seasons. New ingredients and new ideas. It’s a chance to create something special. Locality is also a key consideration. Helping local suppliers and businesses is incredibly important, but I won’t sacrifice quality for the sake of locality. Which global food styles do you like, do they influence your dishes? I like all styles – way too many to choose just one. I like techniques and ingredients that I find interesting and that I enjoy as a diner. I enjoy finding ways to incorporate them into my style of cooking without undervaluing or changing them. We’ll use ingredients such as miso, and techniques such as fermentation, pickling, and others that we “borrow” while staying true to my own style. If you could sum up Pascere in just ten words what would they be? Focused, driven, refined, comfortable, fun, elegant, humble, best, team, ever

A TASTE OF LUXURY

I

have the best job in the world, well at least when it comes to visiting a restaurant with as clear a vision as Pascere. It is certainly hard to believe that the team here have achieved so much in what would seem so short a time. It’s 25 years since I started to write about restaurants and back then I was pretty obsessed with one element and that was about food knowledge – both mine and that of the restaurant I was covering. Not a bad starting position – but one that I soon realised was only a part of the job, so much more goes into creating that excellent dining experience, whether it’s a speedy fuel stop or a special occasion. Pascere most definitely is special and I have already been there three times which is a lot for someone who writes about somewhere every week. So why? I would love to say that there is a simple answer and I hope that a lot of that can be gleaned from my interviews with the two main people behind the place. And by saying that I would not demean the excellence of the kitchen brigade and front of house team who have all bought into this success. I also love the interior, it has a warmth and level of luxurious comfort that few venues seem to achieve – and I love that! Anyway, enough of that and on to the food. The menu is divided into small plates and also an a la carte offering. I’ve dived into both and have been excited by the exquisite attention to detail, respect for ingredients and the inventive creations of chef Johnny, there’s no silliness here which is a great relief. On my most recent visit I chose the lamb sweetbreads to start. Not the easiest of ingredients to prepare, a lot of work and the lightest of touches to make them good. These were simply delicious, beautifully tender, creamy even with the presence of a sorrel ice cream and a sheep’s milk panna cotta of breath like delicacy to balance the rich glaze and worthwhile dots of sharp lemon to raise the profile. It tasted wonderful and looked wonderful too. Next duck, beautifully prepared and succulent breast sat on a pistacchio puree and a fine cherry puree too. In addition there was a dark duck bon­bon, fashionable but on this occasion worthwhile, a duck liver parfait delicately encased in pistacchio crumbs, cherry, glazed onions and the refreshingly bitter addition of both raw and braised chicory. It was so well judged that no matter what combination of elements ended up on my fork they simply worked. I like a pudding that rounds off the meal in gentle comfort and the buttermilk sponge does just that, it’s a warm cuddle of a pud, a gentle goodnight kiss of soft sweetness, cloud­like cake, sticky honeycomb and cinder­like cooked honeycomb, refreshed by a reduced milk ice cream… sorry, I had to stop a moment and wipe my brow. I hope you get the picture, there’s so much more I could share but really, you need to get there and find out what all the buzz is about! Pascere 8 Duke Street, Brighton, 01273 917949. Open Mon­Sat 10am­10pm, 11am­6pm Sun pascere.co.uk

uch as I love big and bold flavours and robust dishes, I also love the opposite end of the taste spectrum, the delicate, subtle and refined. Last week I was lucky enough to attend a dinner celebrating a year of Issac @ in the North Laine being open full time. For such a young chef and team they have achieved incredible heights in that short time. The format is simple: a tasting menu and the offer of wine flights and juice flights. The strict adherence to local produce works well and one can easily forgive them the coffee and whisky being from further afield as everything else seems to be locally sourced and made within their own tiny kitchen – even the delicious butter! For the occasion Mr L joined me, possibly my longest standing review companion, which will soon be hitting a scary quarter of a century – god, I am old! The meal last night was sublime, starting with a delicate crisp bread topped with dots of herbal gels. Then the amazing treacle bread and a new one using Trenchmore’s heritage grain flour – super tasty. First course proper was crab, mixed white and dark meat with scorched, pickled and ‘ketchupped’ cucumber. Beautiful clarity of flavours throughout. Next came Brill with desiree potato mash – the fish simple and honest, the mash packed with earthy flavour, so often lacking when the dish is full of butter, and a parsley oil hit exactly the right note. This was followed by more earthy notes with a dish of aubergine, beetroot and onions, three of my favourites on one plate. Lamb rump came next, beautifully cooked, tender and sweet and not drowning in an over reduced sauce, it was a triumph of restraint. It came with perfect turnips and wilted coriander, stunning. I could have eaten those turnips all night long! To cleanse the palate a blackcurrant and cucumber sorbet did just the job and amazingly the cucumber was not dwarfed by the usual strident flavour of the currants. Dessert was a play on greengage and dates, a dark and satisfying nod to the end of summer and the advent of winter flavours with a brilliant ice­ cream, Viennese biscuits and pink peppercorn meringue shards. And finally a tiny cake of delicate delight with a burnt apple topped sherbety fudge. Someone whispered in my ear that they found the food bland, I don’t think so at all. I think they missed the point, the food is delicate, refined and elegant – anyone can throw big flavours at ingredients but it takes real skill to cook at this level.

KERRY GODLIMAN As seen on Michael McIntyre’s Roadshow, Live At The Apollo, Ricky Gervais’ Derek, and more recently Carters Get Rich, Kerry Godliman is warming up for a new stand up tour this autumn. Victoria Nangle spoke with her as she prepared. I’m utterly enjoying watching you in Carters Get Rich. What do you think you’d do if you suddenly came into a fortune? I’d like to think I’d do something altruistic with it… be like a well meaning Victorian philanthropist lady, helping the misfortunate. But I’d probably have a year off and take my family travelling.

What is your first love: comedy or acting? Don’t make me choose! I love both. I loved acting first, and went to drama school. If I’d been a more successful actor earlier in my career, I never would have tried stand up. Stand up lets me say what I want, it gives me all the power. But it can be lonely.

What’s the most razzle dazzle showbiz thing you’ve ever done in your regular life? I’m not very razzle dazzle. I feel a bit guilty if I get an Uber. The most showbiz razzle dazzle experience I’ve ever had was go to LA to shoot a film. (Mascots, on Netflix). I drank a lot of Kale juice and did loads of yoga. I found myself moved to tears in one yoga class. They were playing Cat Stevens while we did sun salutations and I lost it. I think that’s very showbiz.

What is the dream role you’d love to be cast in, and why? Do you mean a part that exists, like lady Macbeth or something? If so, then something in a Noel Coward play maybe, someone witty and urbane. But deep too. And troubled.

Your new show is called ‘Stick Or Twist’. As someone of a similar age to you, my first impulse is to ask if this is about a fortysomething­what­ next time – and if so, what is next? You’re right, it is about the ‘what next’ stage of life. But more specifically whether to ‘stick’ with living in London, or ‘twist’ and move out. But it’s about other stuff too.

“ I’m not very razzle dazzle. I feel a bit guilty if I get an Uber. ” If you mean any part I can imagine then a heightened version of me, with a fleet of top writers making me witty and urbane and deep and trouble too. You’ve got a well honed talent for accessing the familiar and giving it a fresh slant. Is there anything you’ve always

wanted to write jokes about but struggle with? I’d love to be able to nail satire. I love great political comedy. What is the key to being able to establish an intimate connection with your audience when playing smaller venues (I saw you at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar headlining Gittins To Know You not long ago) and larger ones (Live At The Apollo)? You just aim to make a connection, person to person. It’s a conversation, but I do all the talking. When you’re playing a big room, slow down a bit. Do you still get nervous – and if so, what do you do to

overcome nerves? I don’t get nerves like I used to. Exercise. Breathing techniques can help. I think a few nerves are part of the thrill of it. Who makes you laugh so that you fall over and make undignified noises? My husband really makes me laugh. What do you hope 80­year­ old you will be up to? Doing yoga in LA to Cat Stevens. Kerry Godliman: Stick Or Twist, Ropetackle, Shoreham, Wednesday 22 November 2017; 8pm; £15, ropetacklecentre.co.uk

STAGE Brighton’s New Venture Theatre is never shy of tackling classic theatre

W

hilst mainstream and commercial theatres struggle within a strained economic climate to stay alive, by balancing a programme of very commercial productions against those that are perhaps less financially rewarding, we should take our hats off to the smaller companies who continue to stretch their boundaries with works that might not get that mass market response. One such company is Brighton’s own NVT, an amazing venue and team who never seem to shy away from tackling both new material and classics. This autumn see the opening of their new production of Eugene O’Neill’s

10 | LATEST 7

“ Anna Christie is

about love & forgiveness, charting one woman’s longing to forget the dark secrets of her past ” ‘Anna Christie’. O’Neill’s play is about love and forgiveness, charting one woman’s longing to forget the dark secrets of her past and for her hope of salvation. Written in 1921 this powerful drama resonates with O’Neill’s early seafaring experiences. He received his second Pulitzer Prize for this

work, which has had a number of recent revivals at the Donmar and Triad Theatres. Anna was sent by her Swedish seafaring father to live with cousins in Minnesota where she was badly abused. She escapes and writes to her father telling him it’s time to help her. They are reconciled, but whilst on her father’s barge they come across a shipwrecked sailor Matt Burke and she falls in love. Dare she tell them the truth and risk everything? ‘Anna Christie’ is directed by Jerry Lyne, who has won a number of awards for previous productions. Friday 10th to Saturday 18th November 7:45 pm.

art play, part VR experience’ is a description we will be seeing more and more of in the next few years as the nascent form attempts to reach a wider audience and find its feet. The plot concerned a missing person mystery, framed by a vague notion that we were the jury but without any explanation or payoff for that conceit. The play consisted of three settings: an older Meera Clarke (brilliantly, twitchingly portrayed in the flesh by Tessa Parr, the only actor present), a diving sequence and a flashback to Meera’s childhood. The ‘90s setting was well realised in a convincing child’s bedroom: the agency of being able to take in the 360 degree scene was good fun and one’s nosing around felt relevant to the investigative nature of the plot. However, a few too many fluffed lines and glances at the camera spoiled the immersion. An enjoyable but slightly disjointed and conceptually muddled experience. The Old Market, 6 September 2017

BRIGHTON LIGHTS WHAT TO DO IN THE CITY > MUSIC & ENTERTAINMENT WITH JOE FULLER

1

If you like folk music and/or the music of artists such as Will Oldham or Magnolia Electric Company then This Is The Kit could be the ticket for you this week. There is an understated quality to Kate Stables’ music: the layered intertwining melodies on recent track ‘Bullet Proof’ are quietly affecting, and effective, for example. Concorde 2, 19 September, 7.30pm, £15

Ne­Yo is a great R & B act with some brilliant pop songs across all of his albums, and he's refreshingly at least a bit feminist with songs like Miss Independent. I’m hoping he plays ‘When You’re Mad’ so I get to hear the line “sex you all over the place”.

> ARTS WITH BRIGHTON’S ARTY

We’re loving the gentrification of the seafront arches, which make the perfect foil to the space­age i360 (love it or hate it). And particularly pleasing about their regeneration is its attraction to Brighton’s creative community, as exciting new artspaces emerge, such as the delightful Nigel Rose Gallery. Here you’ll find a truly welcoming home to some of our favourite local artists, such as painter Geoff Hands and sculptor Alison McGechie. Whether you’ve an eye for abstract, landscape, portraiture, wildlife paintings or sculpture you’ll find it here along with an eclectic collection of glorious antiques. Definitely worth a stroll. www.nigelrosegallery.com artymagazines.com

Snap out of it

S

ometimes it’s just brilliant fun when your brain does a sideways creative fart. Or at least, that’s how I like to think of my random efforts to follow my nose and see where it leads me when I don’t engage my brain. At a house party in the woods last year I just let my limbs lead me around, exploring, so that I talked with some incredible people I’d never met before, just listened in on conversations (it’s not eavesdropping if they can see you’re listening), and finally ended up tucked into my sleeping bag on autopilot while the rest of the party raged on downstairs.

“ I have still to work out how to get into the turret ” Last month I was up at the Edinburgh Fringe, amidst all of the frenzy that that entails: awesome shows, staying with some of my favourite people, bumping into old friends and connecting more strongly than ever in the hothouse of performing, producing and reviewing every day. Oh, and one of the venues looks like Hogwarts. I have been visiting Edinburgh Fringe for the last ten years and I have still to work out how to get into the turret of the Gilded Balloon. One day, one day.... One of the days I was up there I was lucky enough to be joined for a few shows by one of my dear hosts. We had seen two shows, were waiting for a third, and he’d already made clear that he was going to be ducking out of the fourth I was due to review

as his energy was flagging. Mine was too. We staggered into the bar area of the Underbelly venue and zeroed in on an empty table, chairs akimbo and tabletop covered in discarded flyers. This was our sanctuary for the next hour and we weren’t sharing. I was tidying up though, and started gathering the flyers up into a single pile. It was cathartic, it was calming, it was a sideways brain fart. I don’t know if you’ve ever played Flyer Snap but it doesn’t half bring the energy back. Just separate the big pile of flyers into two smaller piles and take your card from the bottom of your pack rather than the top – what with there being no ‘back’ to these playing cards. We even had a couple of flyers approach us and ask for their shows to be added into the pack too! I’m just saying, if you’re not sure what to do then just see what feels the most natural and give it a go (without breaking any laws or violating anyone else). It’s kind of like when you let your phone complete entire sentences through predictive text. It’s good to have a few random times in life. We were fully energised again for our next show – a marvel in itself. And have a renewed love of Snap. Anyone for a game?
