Happy Mondays with the Community Kitchen is always a celebration of the best local and seasonal ingredients: the room will be decorated and the welcome warm. But it will also offer opportunities for volunteers to build their kitchen confidence, learn about local suppliers and discover new recipes and ideas.
Our aim is to highlight what’s growing in and around Bungay in gardens and on farms, show how local, seasonal eating is not only healthy, enjoyable, good for the local economy and environmentally sound but also exciting and surprising.
In time we hope there will be a Happy Monday every week, but at the moment our aim is a monthly meal. If you’d like to get involved, perhaps supplying ingredients from your garden to the kitchen, cooking, suggesting recipes or helping meet and greet please do contact us.
When: March 18th, 6:45 for 7pm
Where: Bungay Community Centre, Upper Olland Street
Cost: £5 for 2 courses
Menu: Our March meal takes ‘spring greens’ for inspiration and around that we’ll be serving a spring green colcannon with a spring vegetable (probably purple sprouting broccoli) and blue cheese tart, carrots with a sherry vinegar glaze, a pea shoot garnish and home made damson ketchup. For dessert we’ll be using the last of the stored apples to make an apple and barley flummery sprinkled with home made granola.
NB. This month we’ll be welcoming Susan Low, a food writer from delicious. magazine. She’s planning to include the Community Kitchen in a feature later this year – very exciting! There’s a fair chance she’ll bring a photographer who might well stay for the meal and take a few pictures – if so we’ll ensure that these aren’t intrusive and that you’ll be able to opt out if you’d prefer.
