Modsummer Madness with ASPARAGASM as Chef Jay Halford presents ‘CORE VALUES’

A five-course vegan and gluten-free fine dining event for vegans, vegetarians & everyone!
There’s a very modern taste-maker coming to town as we celebrate the longest day in London with Chef Jay Halford on Tuesday 21st June at St Luke’s Community Centre, Islington.


While Asparagasm sets a monochrome tone for a Modsummer Madness, Jay’s menu for ‘Core Values’ promises to deliver a colourful expression of great vegan flavours:

  • Garlic & Flaxseed Cracker with Roasted Balsamic Beetroot, Beetroot Crisp & Smoked Paprika Cheese
  • Plantain, Coriander & Peanut Ball with Sweet Marinated Chilli
  • Ras El Hanout spiced Quinoa with Sweet Potato, Creamed Avocado, Parsnip Crisps & Pickled Emoki Mushrooms
  • Layers of Courgette Pasta, Pecan Nutmeat, Marinated Mushrooms & Red Onion with Basil Pesto & Creamy Tomato Sauce
  • Coconut & Lemon Posset with Lime Gel & fresh Pineapple & Passion Fruit
  • Vanilla Tart with textures of Raw Cacao & Mango Sorbet

Trained at Michelin starred Lords of the Manor Jay Halford is founder and Chef at the Core in Cheltenham. Asparagasm loves his values and passion for food and his work to make juicing, raw superfoods accessible to people means his food is great looking, nutritious and so tasty:

 “My background as a chef and in catering has meant that for me, taste always comes first. I believe that you should recognise every ingredient that is used in a recipe; how they are best combined to create the ultimate taste.” Jay Halford

With live music from talented artists who have emerged from the Key Changes hospital and community programmes, Core Values is a night fusing food, music and good mood. Proceeds from the night support Key Changes award-winning programmes promoting positive mental health through music.

With welcome canapes and drinks join an open mic session from 6.30pm. Dinner is served from 7.30 with an extra helping of live music served at dessert.

Vegan fairtrade and organic spirits are served from the FAIR bar along with Asparagasm pale ale and biodynamic wine and cordially sparkling organic drinks from Elderbrook.

Tickets are available online at via EventBrite or email Kate at if you wish to arrange a group booking.
