Head Chef of Town House, Steve Gibbs


Town House’s Executive Chef, Steve Gibbs has trained under some of the UK’s best chef’s including Gordon Ramsey, Jason Atherton and Mark Hix. We caught up with him to find out his inspiration behind the dish…

What was the inspiration behind this dish?
I used to work in Marbella, Spain, and I have fond memories of watching the sunset, having a chilled bowl of gazpacho. Crab is my favourite seafood plus vodka and gazpacho go very well together.

Can you tell us more about the ’smoked’ vodka?
It’s one of my favourite spirits from Chase Distillery, with its sweet and light woody notes of liquorice root, perfect for food-pairing.

What’s your secret to making the perfect gazpacho?
Marination overnight is my tip for the perfect gazpacho.

What drink would you recommend to go with this dish?
A nice and chilled beer will complement the dish perfectly.
