It was a super busy week for us here at Alright Treacle. As well as assisting on the launch of fabulous new wine bar and restaurant Anfora, we collaborated with fellow alternative dining hostess Louise, from The Fireside Collective, at Earthy Ratcliffe Terrace. This was our first collaborative project together, and well, it went marvellously!
Using the Earthy ethos of 'Forage.Nourish.Share.' as our theme, we started with 'Forage', and made a hake ceviche, which included sea greens, blood orange, bergamot, fennel and herbs. Our nourishing main course was lamb, garlic, rosemary and mint sausages from Peelham Farm, celeriac puree, braised lentils (with new season wild garlic from Phantassie), smokey bacon and caramelised shallot. Finally, a sharing dessert of chewy hazelnut pavlova, with vanilla cream, rhubarb and candied hazelnuts.
As well as food from us, we had 3 stunning bespoke chocolates made by Thinking Chocolate, which included a honey & pomegranate caramel cup, orange & bergamot hand cut square, and a violet & rose truffle - delicious!!!
A huge thank-you to Caitlin and the Earthy team for letting us crash, and all the great people that helped on the night.
