Last weekend we donned our aprons for the first time in 2015 for our January event. Veg was the theme of the evening as we dusted off Ottolenghi’s Plenty More to create a meat free feast for fourteen hungry guests. In from the cold, our guests were treated to our welcome cocktail, a rose, elderflower and gin. This was a fresh and fragrant concoction that combined gin with sparkling water, homemade elderflower cordial and rose water. A very simple cocktail but it got gin haters enjoying gin and one guest described it as the best cocktail she’d ever had! Sweet and floral it was certainly easy to glug!
Happy New Year! I can’t believe it has been month since out Christmas event – where does time go? After a short festive break, Dan and I are recharged and raring to go with our next event which is under a fortnight away.
A veggie event is on the cards to help cleanse the stomach after a month of excess and we’re using Yotam Ottolenghi’s Plenty More as our guide. We’re shaking up the format for this one and serving up a mezze feast for our guests. Fresh flavours served up round our Victorian dining room. Lovely.
We’re busy testing these recipes at the moment and we’d love to know what you think!
