Back in Summer 2011, Pitt Cue Co. was just a small trailer parked in Southbank that dished out hot, Southern US-style, slow-cooked food.
It pretty swiftly became a 'have you been yet?' eating experience, and in January 2012, they opened their 30-seater restaurant on the corner of Newburgh Street. Dangerously close to the Esquire office.
Since then it has established itself as a big (but small) player on the Soho food scene with queues guaranteed (I’m afraid they still don’t take reservations).
Now the innovators of slow-cooking have launched their first cookbook, but no need to worry, you don’t need to be a Heston in the kitchen in order to recreate their pulled pork shoulder, beef ribs or legendary burnt ends mash yourself.
The book features a collection of over 120 recipes along with tips on smoking, grilling as well as sourcing the highest-quality meat. And no Pitt Cue experience is fully complete without bourbon. Why not try the infamous Pickleback (a shot of Bourbon with a pickle juice chaser) at home?
Pitt Cue Co cookbook is out on the 6th June - www.pittcue.co.uk
