Week beginning January 19th - New ideas for the new store

Kaffeine is now back in full swing of great service, coffee and of course food. With the announcement of our second store we’ve been getting hit with waves of customers, many with question on then new second location. One question I’ve been asked a few time is if the menu with remain the same? Yes and no is the answer. We are still in planning stages, having loads of fun with testing new recipes, new ideas and new formats. Some of these ideas will also be implemented to K1, while at K2 we will be able to offer a few different items on the menu using different and more exciting cooking techniques.

For this weeks menu though, you’ll find lesser celandine on the menu, this tender hairless perennial looks a bit like ivy and grows along hedge banks and roadsides. Usually makes an appearance late winter and early spring. Commonly boiled and eaten in Sweden and fried in Italy. We however will be serving it as a raw salad garnish with 18 month aged Parma, blood oranges and fennel risotto balls.

Our second salad will be garnished with wild pea shoots; these amazing little sprouts have the same flavour of peas without the sweetness. They will be served with a balance of forced rhubarb confit, blanched broccoli, red chilli, saffron pine nuts and Parmesan cheese.

Lastly in our salad range we have some miniature roasted winter comforts, small carrots and parsnips. Caramelised and covered in black mustard dressing. Black mustard is the only mustard that is native to the British Isles. The leaves have a pungent and spicy flavour with garlic notes. Perfect for winter vegan comforts.

And now we welcome the new week, full of things that have never been.
