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.

Succulents, home made butter and milk bottles of blood orange juice.

Next came our take on ‘kedgeree’ – spiced smoked haddock croquettes, avocado, soft boiled Clarence court eggs with puffed turmeric rice.

Toasters and home made breads on the tables

Tables were piled high with jams, compotes sauces and toasters for toasting home made bread.
