How to make a cocktail emerge from a story with Hammant Patel Villa, Courtesan

Hammant Patel Villa, Courtesan, London

Dim Sum is an attitude, not a dish you eat on Sunday at your local Chinese restaurant. That wasn’t only one thing I learned from our guest today, Hammant Patel Villa, while chatting at Courtesan, his Brixton bar and restaurant.

Everything on his menu has a tale, whether it emerges from his multicultural upbringing in the heart of this very neighborhood or Chinese history or his years working in business. These stories make each and every cocktail as rich in flavor as it is in individuality. From every sip emerges a multitude of images – how romantic is that!
