Week beginning June 22nd - Summer favourites

As I was saying last week Kaffeine is to get its very own cookbook, this means there will be some best of items from over the last 6 years featuring on our weekly menus. This is so I can tweak and foolproof the recipes in a written form. So expect to see some familiar wonders making a comeback. 

On this weeks menu at Eastcastle Street we are getting into a summer vibe. First up is a salmon salad; the salmon has been baked in manuka honey, which is a very special honey from my part of the world New Zealand. Manuka has been famed for being an alternative medicine, used for its antibacterial properties and healing of burns, cuts and rashes. Manuka honey has a distinctive flavour too earthy, oily, herbaceous, florid and rich. Our New Zealand flavoured salmon will be served complimented with new potatoes, roasted beetroot, mint yoghurt and foraged sorrel and watercress.

Making a return is my favourite salad from this year, it comes from our Burmese inspired menu. Roasted chickpeas and peanuts with a dressing made from pickled green tea leaf. The teas leafs are boiled three times to remove the bitterness and pickled in salt and spices and pureed. The result is like a very complex spinach flavour, deep, tasty and cleansing. 

Down the road at Great Titchfield Street chef Khan has once again been raiding my mind with her telepathy powers. She too has made a salad with salmon, new potatoes and watercress. What can I say? great minds think alike.  

We look forward to another week of sunny hospitality.
