The Dock Kitchen

Situated in a quiet corner of Ladbroke Grove, The Dock Kitchen has a growing reputation.

After pioneering ‘The Moveable Kitchen’ – a series of pop up restaurants in unlikely locations – Head Chef Stevie Parle has made the venue his permanent home. With the premises occupying a space above the showrooms of designer Tom Dixon, the contemporary dining room has proved popular.

However the main draw is the fresh ingredients and inventive menu, recognised with Stevie being named Observer Food Monthly Magazine’s ‘Young Chef of the Year’ for 2010.

I was fortunate enough to be commissioned by The Dock Kitchen and Tom Dixon to document a day in the life of the restaurant in the late summer of 2010 – it was a fun shoot, the highlight being a continuous stream of tasty small dishes that got passed my way during gaps in photographing!
