What a glorious day! I feel so very lucky to have a job that means I can cook outside in the luscious gardens in Bulwell. It’s a real urban retreat, it really soothes my soul being there. Today we are being bold and cranking up the clay oven and making pizza! Served with those exquisitely more-ish salads they grow there. Rhubarb cake to follow and shhh don’t tell anyone it’s all VEGAN!  Please join us from 11 to hang out and get stuck in with pizza making if you can, lunch club is about good food and building community so without you lovely lot it’s nothing. Lunch club is free but if you are able to donate then the money goes towards growing more delicious produce for us to enjoy!  Bulwell Forest Garden  map

Party Success!

Last Saturday I catered for a birthday party serving up a middle eastern inspired platter for 40 guests. The feedback (see below) I received made my heart smile and confirms that vegan food is just good food, nothing to be scared off and can taste bleddy amazing!

“Thanks ever so much, the food went down really well. And there was loads there and people went for seconds. Someone did say ‘But I thought vegan food was really dull??’ Hahah, you showed ’em!!
It was a great night all round, and it was great to share such lovely food with people”.

The Robe Room

After being open for 6 weeks we finally have a name for our café. Welcome to The Robe Room! Inspiration struck after a rather lovely couple, (who we really hope were on a first date, they looked like they were having a ball) asked us what the café space used to function as. The barristers’ robing room was added to the site in 1844. As soon as we heard this we just knew the café’s name was ‘The Robe Room’. This project has been an act of serendipity from the start and looks set to continue. Marvellous! Last weekend a young Italian couple on their holiday declared that ours was the best espresso they had drank in Nottingham. Prior to that an Australian couple claimed it to be  the best they had tasted in England! Bella Bonzer Espresso courtesy of local coffee heroes Stewart’s of Trent Bridge!

National Justice Museum, Lunch Club, Vegan Market!

Hello! It has been a real long time since I nattered to you. A lot has been going on! I’ve been a bit reluctant to talk about it all because so often I’ve come close to an opportunity working out only to victory snatched from my grasp, however a month into the partnership it maybe time to accept it is happening and everything is fine! I’ve partnered up with the awe-inspiring Jill Carter and Pulp Friction (who work with and train young adults with learning difficulties, absolutely wicked project, check them out and give them props), to form The Wing It Sisters! We are running the café in The National Justice Museum (formally Galleries of Justice). So come in and check us out. I think our soy cappuccino/latte is one of the best, our cakes are vegan and bring all the boys to the yard and our members are all wonderful people waiting to impress you with their skills.

Lunch Club is back!

Bulwell Forest Garden is out of winter hibernation and each week new plants are poking their heads out of the soil and growing towards the sun. The Sensory Garden is looking stunning and it is such a pleasure to spend time in a beautiful relaxing space in the midst of the urban jungle. Come along from 11 to get involved in preparing the food and meet other lunch club crew members (they are all diamonds). Lunch from 12ish, this week we are experimenting with making Mexican bean chard wraps and there is a plum and almond tart for dessert. All vegan, some ingredients freshly harvested today and all tasting like win! Access the garden via Austin Street map

Nottingham’s Monthly Vegan Market

You may or may not know that I am part of the crew that organises this monthly market on Sneinton Market Square. It started off as a suggestion I  made in a meeting and has grown into a fabulous friendly community of traders and visitors. A great social shopping experience and OH EM GEE the food! Many of us know that vegan food has come on in leaps and bounds and this market, I think, showcases some of the best that there is on offer. This month we are going a little off piste and having a fringe festival event to the ever Awesome Viva Vegan Festival. Punk 4 The Homeless have curated an acoustic music stage, there are lots of new traders for you to meet and I will be dusting off my best trader banter to serve up Notdogs, The A.L.T and Tofu-lo Strips, plus running a bar serving up Nottingham Blue Barrel Cider, a community led initiative that produces CAMRA award winning cider and supports Summerwood Community Gardens. Come down and party with us!
