Brunch @ 134 Columbia Road
13th March 2017
A few snaps from our brunch at 134 Columbia Road last week. Tables were set looking out over the busy market on Sunday and sunshine streamed through the windows of the studio onto tables laden with St John sourdough, home-made jams and marmalades, and home-made soda bread that had come out of the oven just before the guest’s arrival. They were welcomed with blood orange mimosa’s and Bloody Mary’s with infused horseradish and cardamom Absolut vodka, and then asked to take their seats so the first of 5 courses of brunch food could begin.
Blood orange juice in my beloved vintage milk bottles, home made butter, tiles and succulents.
Brunch started with buttermilk overnight pancakes, rhubarb and orange compote, Tonka bean creme fraiche and honey; and bowls of granola, home dried grapes, home made yoghurt, Bramley apple and rhubarb and apple crisps.
Brunch in the studio up above the busy flower market on Sunday.
Next came our take on ‘kedgeree’ – spiced smoked haddock croquettes, avocado, soft boiled Clarence court eggs with puffed turmeric rice.
Tables were piled high with jams, compotes sauces and toasters for toasting home made bread.
Next up (the above photo is before it went in the oven) our version of baked beans with tallegio and piles of basil.
Accompanied by home made salt beef and goat gouda toastie. Made with St John sourdough, dill and brussel kraut and sweet mustard.
Last but not least … Sourdough doughnut with bergamot curd, Earl Grey powder and mini meringues with a little bag to take home just in case you don’t have space!
A big thank you to all our amazing team, Tara and Izzy for your cameras and to everyone who came to join us. Stay tuned for more pops this year.
