Crab Salad Days

With this run of beautiful sunny weather, my thoughts have been turning to Spring or Summery fayre. So, It was too much to resist when presented with fresh Dressed Crab at the Stoke Newington Market on the weekend. I grabbed one, and used this to prepare an open Sandwich on E5 Bakehouse Sourdough with Coarse Wholegrain Mustard, some fresh Rocket and Salad leaves, chopped gherkins and homemade Mayonnaise courtesy of flatmate Rakhi. Simply divine.

Soup Kitchen No.1

Posted in courses, events on October 14th, 2011 by Kevin – 1 Comment

I’m delighted to announce ‘Soup Kitchen No.1:’ the first in a planned series of cooking classes which will be held regularly on Monday Evenings at Happy Kitchen Canteen. It will be led by locally sourced wholefood and macrobiotic cooks, starting with me! (pictured, right) My intention is to share the joy of Home Cooking, starting with simple but hearty soups, created from scratch. By taking a moment to produce home-made stock, you create a window of time to immerse yourself in your kitchen, ground yourself, and create a simple, nourishing meal for yourself and your loved ones. It’s been a foundation for me to establish a simple practise and relationship to wholefood cooking, particularly in these autumn/winter months. In the opening class on Monday 24 October, we’ll create such a stock, then use it to make a hearty, nourishing Vegetable & Miso Soup which we’ll then enjoy with freshly baked Sourdough bread from the E5 Bakehouse. There’s only 20 places, so get in quick! To book, call 020 8525 4994 or email Many thanks to Lisa and the Happy Kitchen team, and Ben at the E5 Bakehouse for their support.
