Today we are hosting a celebration of all things vegetarian/vegan. If you have been to dinner before and your favourite dish is not on the menu then give us a shout and we will add it to the list. If you are a vegan and want to come to dinner let me know when you book so that I can make sure that I can adapt dishes or even put on some alternatives for you.
We are eating Ottolenghi style so everything will come out as quickly as it's ready!!
Black bean and avocado salad with nachos - this dish has a mexican influence with a last minute squeeze of lime to make it zing.
Village tomato salad - A popular salad in Syria and Lebanon served with chunks of fresh bread to dip into the juices.
Baked feta with rose syrup - slightly salty feta cheese is roasted with fragrant, lightly caramelized homemade rose syrup and garnished with some roses for a floral finish served with Melba toast.
Roasted sliced beetroot on a layer of avocado dressing sprinkled with goats cheese and nigella seeds - I rustled this up as an experiment for breakfast a few weeks ago and was hugely disappointed when I realised I had eaten the lot.
Baba Ganoush kind of salad - grilled chopped aubergine salad dip - a bit of a salad that thinks it's a dip!
Roasted cauliflower with a harissa and tomato dressing – Roasting does something magical to cauliflower and this dish is ... magical!!
In the UK we regularly eat hummus cold but in Arabic countries they eat it warm too so tonight we are going to roast a tray of root vegetables and serve them on a bed of warm humus and sprinkled with sunflower seeds for a bit of crunch.
Cauliflower and cumin fritter with lime yogurt - a bit like a pakora these little parcels of joy will make your heart sing, I bet you can't just have one.
We always have two and there is always some home made meringue kisses and homemade ice-cream in the freezer …. you know you won't go home hungry.
Freshly ground coffee served with a variety of after dinner mints. There is also Yorkshire tea, mint tea, green tea, liquorice tea, pomegranate and apple tea and decaf coffee if anyone wants one.
Hi Maria - any chance of including one of the dishes from the salad evening - I wanted to ask you for the recipe . . it was one of the last ones you served - and I think it was red peppers (or were they tomatoes) on a yoghurt base, with a salty taste. Thanks, Ian
