Next vegan cooking class – 27th February 2019

11 – 12.15pm In West Bridgford making delicious beetroot risotto

risotto beetroot

I have a couple of places left on my next vegan cooking class, which is taking place on Wednesday 27th February at 11am in West Bridgford.  You’ll have everything you need to make a delicious beetroot pearl barley and quinoa risotto.

This short video shows a cooking guest making the risotto

 

The cost is £25 and includes all the ingredients, equipment and the recipe.  Plus nutritional guidance, advice and tips about the ingredients you will be cooking with.

The recipe is very versatile, so if you don’t like pearl barley you can revert back to good old risotto rice and you will still make an unbelievably tasty risotto.

Contact me if you’d like to book a space, but please be quick as places are limited.

vegan cookery classes

If you can’t make this date I always have classes running on the following days and times Monday, Wednesday or Friday from 11 – 12.15pm, Tuesday from 12.15 – 1.30pm and Wednesday evening from 5.30 – 6.45pm

 

Its fine if you want to come to just this class or you could attend a series, in which case you can have 6 for the price of 5 i.e. £125, and they can be used within a year.

Out of the 6 sessions only one is sweet based, the other 5 are savoury.  Previous guests have made sweet potato falafels, Mexican tacos, cauliflower and chickpea curry, chocolate pots, nut roast, tofu rice paper rolls to name but a few delicious vegan dishes.

Cheff, Trent Boulevard

 Cheff, Trent Boulevard Lady Bay – the new healthy eating takeaway

cheff

The old Locksmiths shop on Trent Boulevard has recently been transformed in to Cheff, a new takeaway outlet.  But this is a fast food place with a difference it serves healthy ‘clean’ food.  The owner and inspiration behind the venture is Adam Sinnott..  You may think that Adam has a spelling mistake in the name of his business, but you’d be wrong because Cheff stands for Clean, Healthy, Energising, Fresh Food.

cheff

These are bold claims so I went along to buy and try some of his ‘clean’ food.  As its early days Cheff is operating a slightly reduced menu that will expand over the coming weeks and months.

Adam and the 5 steps

 

There are ‘5 steps’ to obtain your healthy food;

Step 1 (this sounds like a song!) choose your size, I went for the mini box for £5.95.

Step 2 Choose your protein; being vegan I could either have the homemade falafels or tofu.  I plumped for tofu.

Step 3 choose your base (basically your carbs), garlicky new potatoes for me.

Step 4 choose your veg (either hot or cold or both) roasted parsnips with maple syrup, crunchy slaw, roasted veg and spinach were all packed in to the recyclable cardboard mini box.

My full review can all be seen on the wonderful West Bridgford Wire, where plenty of locals have also shared their comments https://westbridgfordwire.com/susan-hart-review-cheff-clean-food-takeaway-in-west-bridgford/?fbclid=IwAR2mO-Bl34YkrgF7RRJbL3u5A3_EmJ0Wcaah2sC33ogB9aHktesXtXveR7c

Step 5 Choose your sauce. I’m not a huge bbq fan so I opted for the homemade blueberry sauce.  Secure the lid, take home and scoff!

mini tofu box

Which is exactly what I did.  And goodness me it was tasty.  I loved all the textures and flavours and the ‘mini‘ portion was certainly enough for lunch. If you were eating it in the park or in the car (not ideal but I know many of you do) then you can pick up compostable or recyclable cutlery and napkins.

The fresh colours of all the different veg made me feel very happy and healthy. The lightness and lack of stodge also made me feel energised and the absence of processed ingredients certainly fulfilled the ‘clean’ element. The protein packed tofu had me feeling nice and full

chef coffee

Another time I’d be happy to pop in for a coffee, not only does Cheff serve coffee from 200 degrees,  a local supplier  but they have a selection of plant based milks to go with them.  If you’d rather have a cold drink, the cabinet is full of healthier energy drinks, vitamin rich fruit drinks and water

As well as local coffee Cheff also sells locally made chocolate from Lovely Fodder , who just happen to be next door

So if you’re in the area why not give the ‘golden arches’ a miss and pop down Trent Boulevard, Lady Bay, West Bridgford, Nottingham for some healthy fresh fast food.  I know I’ll be back

Copper cafe, Central Avenue

Copper cafe, Central Avenue

They’ve added a vegan breakfast to the menu

Copper

It was 18 months ago that I first went to Copper cafe on Central Avenue in West Bridgford to have breakfast. And I was presented with a less than appetising ensemble for the price of £7. I vowed never to go back.

But fast forward 18 months and I thought I’d give them another try,  and there is now a vegan breakfast on the menu and it was very tasty.  It’s basically a vegetarian breakfast but the scrambled egg and halloumi have been substituted for vegan friendly avocado and wilted spinach.  The little falafel balls were so flavoursome and had a lot of different textures, the mushroom was juicy and well cooked and they even had vegan spread for the hot toast. All for a standard price of £7.50

The breakfast is the only item on the menu that is specifically labelled as vegan, so I’d advise you to phone ahead to ask about the lunch time menu, cakes, etc. to see what if anything is on offer
