For my friend Tim’s dinner to discuss ideas for the future of the Oasis city farm near London Waterloo, I cooked the following menu for 14 people. These dishes worked really well for a meal that had to be transported across London and reheated on 2 electric hob rings… and there were clean plates all round! More on the recipes later.
Soft grilled chicory with roasted hazelnuts and parmesan, dressed with olive oil and lemon juice.
San Antonio chilli with homemade brioche, sourcream and homemade Jalapeno pickles
Smoky baked eggs with fried potatoes, chilli butter, garlic yogurt and fresh herbs.
Lemon posset and blood orange jelly with toasted almonds
