This week on Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking host Alex Thomopoulos is in London, England, a wonderfully diverse and rapidly changing gourmet destination. She’s here to create a feast with two of the city’s premier chefs, Sabrina Gidda, executive chef at The AllBright, an all-women’s member club, and attorney-turned-chef Karan Gokani, owner of Hoppers restaurants. Before the chefs start cooking, they head to Borough Market to source local meats and spices. They also pay a visit to Paxton & Whitfield, one of London’s most famous cheese shops, with a unique tasting room. Then it’s back to The AllBright where the three create an amazing menu that includes Cauliflower Chaat, a succulent Keralan Roast Lamb, and Masala Pork Belly with a Slow-Cooked Cardamom Pork Cheek served in a Spiced Carrot and Cumin Purée.

This salad of roasted cauliflower topped with tangy yogurt, pomegranate seeds, chiles, and fresh herbs makes a refreshing contrast to richer curries and roasted meats.
This tender, fall-off-the-bone lamb is seasoned with a spice blend typical of the Indian state of Kerala, on the Malabar coast. In the episode, chef Karan Gokani used a whole leg of lamb, but a shoulder is easier to source and best for a smaller crowd.
