Simpsons in the Strand Simpsons in the Strand

Learn the forgotten art of carving from our expert team of cooks here at SimpsonŐs-in-the-Strand, led by Master Cook, Gerry Rae, the man responsible for teaching all the carvers in our restaurant The Grand Divan, famous for its delicious roast meats.

Starting off with a champagne and Bloody Mary breakfast reception would be master carvers then receive tuition lasting 90 minutes, including time to practice on a variety of joints and finally a tour of our kitchens where the joints are prepared. Carvers receive a presentation carving knife and fork, a certificate of competence and lunch included.

Friends and family of the student carver are encouraged to join for post lesson lunch in the beautiful and historic Regency room where the successful carver can exhibit his or her newly acquired skills.
