Jeremy Lee Delivers A Festive Meringue Masterclass | A Slice of Life

Jeremy Lee joins House & Garden for A Slice of Life, where the Scottish chef talks us through how his epicurean parents inspired in him a love for cooking, although he was originally destined to follow in his father’s footsteps by pursuing the arts.

Jeremy Lee pulls out his “magic carpet” of a cook’s bench before beginning preparations for his Christmas-inspired meringue tumble. “The kitchen is the heart of the home… Which is a cliché, but it’s a cliché for a very good reason,” Jeremy explains as he expresses his affection for his space. “Is it channelling Mum? You know, happy memories and times past, with a coffee and a pile of books. Thinking what dishes you can cook — what’s in the fridge, what you can get”.

Now proprietor at Quo Vadis in London, Jeremy recounts the moment he ended his long and happy tenure at Blueprint Café in London’s Design Museum and pursued a new venture: “It was at the stroke of midnight 2011/2012 that I partnered up with Sam and Eddie Hart, and became chatelaine of this incredible building in Soho with the boys”. Watch the full episode of A Slice of Life with Jeremy Lee as he brings this festive treat to life.
