Turkish cuisine has deep roots in the Ottoman Empire and is a fusion that spans Central Asian, Middle Eastern and Eastern European cuisine. 

This week we are digging into the history books and applying a modern twist to an ancient cuisine.  Our starter is Fresh Dill and Mint Kofta with set Fava Bean Diamonds and steamed Samphire in EV Olive Oil and Lemon, on a rich Tomato and roast Pepper Sauce. 

Now, 'kofta' is traditionally a meatball or dumpling.  The word is derived from the Persian word 'kufta', which means 'to beat' or 'to grind'. So we have taken this concept and created our own plant-based 'kofta' and combined it with fresh dill to provide a beautiful lift.

Our main is Aubergine Saksuka, Courgette Mucver Fritter, Sumac and Rose Salt Curd, Walnut and Red Pepper Puree, Shepard’s Salad,  Biber Salçasi Sauce, fresh baked Sesame Simit Bread.  We've balanced the spice of the red pepper with the acid of the Salci Sauce to bring out the best flavour of the Aubergine.

For desert,  we have Cinnamon baked Rice Pudding, Turkish Delight Halo, Quince and Raspberry, Kazandibi scorched Vanilla Ice Cream.  Now who doesn't love cinnamon in a dessert?  Just a little health note... did you know that cinnamon has been proven to have a cooling efffect on the digestive system?

We hope you come and try our new additions.
