Ahead of Brighton Pride (3rd - 5th August), we put on a special vegan menu, inspired by the beauty and colours of a rainbow. This supper was bursting with fresh summer flavours, clashing colour combinations, and some Wizard of Oz magic!
Each course aimed to give you every colour of the rainbow, but did we manage it?? DISCLAIMER: WE REPLACED INDIGO AND VIOLET WITH PURPLE AND PINK, BECAUSE INDIGO AND VIOLET ARE SILLY COLOURS ---
Bites - Tomato brined and consomme (red and orange), marigold petals (yellow), basil oil (green), poppy seed soda breads (blue), purple amaranth garnish (well, purple...!), pickled shallot (pink)
Second course - Chilli (red), sweet potato puree (orange), corn fritters (yellow), avocado mousse (green), masa flour tortilla (blue), shredded red cabbage (purple), pickled radish (pink)
Third course - chilli oil (red), roasted butternut (orange), turmeric sauce (yellow), dill oil (green), roasted sesame seeds (blue), purple sprouting broccoli tempura (purple), watermelon discs (pink)
Dessert - Strawberry winders (red), nectarine (orange), lemon tarts (yellow), kiwi sorbet (green), cornflower petals (blue), blueberry winders (purple), raspberry coulis (pink)
Granted, some of these are pretty tenuous, but COME ON, we think that's a pretty good effort!
Thank you to everyone that came, it may be my last one in Brighton for a wee while, but we will be back.. maybe in some new digs...
