The Zest Kitchen is where we start our days and enjoy lunch with our colleagues and friends, devouring tantalising dishes created by our very own Head Chef.
Hi, I’m Stewart Parker
Chief Culinary Ambassador at Zest (aka Head chef at Zest)
I’ve worked at Zest since 2022 and I fear I will never be allowed to leave.... EVER. You can mostly find me in the basement working, if it’s quiet I’m probably not there. I do make a lot of noise and you really can’t miss me.
Some of Our Dishes
Pork Carnitas Burrito
Slow-cooked pork burrito with Mexican yellow rice, Salsa Rosa, pickled cabbage, queso fresco, black beans, chipotle, and coriander.
Vegan aubergine reuben patty, Zest pickles, onion, vegan cheese, Zest ketchup and our sexy new bun.
Chicken Tikka Masala
Chicken breast cooked in a mild yogurt-based sauce. Finished with coriander and served with rice and naan.
Each week Stewart provides us with exciting new dishes to try, with ingredients sourced from local suppliers and greengrocers. From hearty classics such as cottage pie to new culinary creations like beetroot masala, each week we are excited to see what’s on the menu.
