Iraqi cuisine for Clapham pub residency

Juma Kitchen Dolma (credit Leyla Kazim)Iraqi cuisine will get a rare and welcome showcase through the Juma Kitchen’s residency at Clapham pub The King and Co throughout October.

This will be the first extended opportunity to sample the cooking of Philip Juma, a London-based Anglo-Irish-Iraqi chef who aims to present Iraqi cuisine in a new light. So far, Juma Kitchen has been restricted to supper clubs and one-off pop-ups.

His dishes include handmade kubba hamuth dumplings in tomato sauce; dolma of vine leaves, onions and baby peppers stuffed with minced lamb, spices and rice, and slow-cooked in lemon and pomegranate (pictured); and knaffa, a dessert of baked cream, cheese, filo pastry and orange blossom water syrup.

The King and Co has hosted a series of cooking residencies with pop-up chefs and street-food traders since it opened in 2014.
