Middle Eastern Flavours
I'm having a bit of a middle eastern themed week! Tried out this new Fentimans Rose Lemonade. It was the usual reliable Fentimans standard and refreshing lemonade with just a hint of rose. I've also been munching on a box of the vegan friendly rose and lemon Turkish Delight the Home Bargains/Quality Save chain are selling for 99p at the moment and which is due to feature in some weekend baking.
Tonight I met my friend Jan to see Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky at the Cornerhouse Cinema and we ate there before the film. The cafe has had a vegan roast vegatable pizza on the menu for a few years now and it was good to see more vegan options have appeared. There was spicy hummus, baba ganoush and carrot and cumin pate and a Morrocan tagine. I decided to give this a try and it was wonderful. It came in a dish topped with a flatbread that had been shaped to look like the lid of the tagine which gave it a real wow factor!
