Lunch Club Today in Bulwell Forest Garden! 11-1 Vegan Jaffa Cakes

Lunch Club today from 11am!

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

 

Vegan Jaffa Cakes have made a welcome return to the café menu alongside new additions of super summery salad bowls, a Brazilian soup and vegan brownies all served up with a smile from the lovely crew at The Robe Room, based in The National Justice Museum open Wednesday to Sunday 10-4!

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”.

Fresh ingredients, picked today lovingly cooked up into a healthy, tasty, vegan lunch.

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!
