If it wasn’t for those pesky birds..

The pesky birds of Pontypridd seem to have developed a taste for gooseberries, red currants and black currants this year. Serves me right for not stocking up the bird feeders I suppose. Still, there’s enough for a batch of Gooseberry & Nigella Seed Chutney (adapted from my favourite tomato chutney recipe – thanks Cinnamon Club). The remaining black currants will make their way into an almond cake. Full menu here

Sorry to say there will be no supper club in July. Last week’s sell-out Twisted Bistro was a big success but there’s just too much other stuff to fit in next month. Herbivore will be on the road again – this time up to MOMA in Machynllteh for a one-night-only “culinary intervention” at ceramicist Lisa Krigel’s exhibition on Thursday 27th July. More details on that coming soon. Watch this space for details of the next Cardiff event too.

Herbivore Back In Town

After three lovely weekends away cooking and eating my way around the beautiful island of Sicily, Herbivore is now back in town and will be at the Embassy Cafe, Cathays Terrace, Cardiff from 11 – 5 on Saturdays and Sundays.   Managed to fit a bit of the good stuff, the high grade Sicilian olive oil , in my baggage so look out for some Italian – inspired dishes coming your way.

Watch out for details of upcoming supper club dates and other special events on the horizon.

Six Sundays at the Embassy

Starting from 15th Jan Herbivore will be operating at the Embassy Cafe on Cathays Terrace every Sunday so you’ll now have two opportunities to sample the ever changing menu of vegan and vegetarian lunches, brunches and sweet things. We’re open 11 – 5 on both days and not currently taking bookings as the space is so small – but do give me a shout if you’re planning to come as a group: it’s useful for me to know and I can do my best to make sure there’s somewhere to sit and something left to eat.

No supper clubs planned for the next two months at Kemi’s but watch this space for any other upcoming events.

Herbivore035: NYE 2016

We’re going to be seeing off the old year and welcoming in the new with a menu of tapas-style small vegan & vegetarian plates at the Embassy Cafe. We’re kicking off at 6pm so you can just drop in for a drink and a bite before heading off to crazy party land. Alternatively, grab a bottle of wine or two and settle in for the night. We’re not taking bookings as it’s not a set a meal – just order as much or as little as you like – but drop me a line if you’re planning to come to give me an idea of numbers. It’ll be a BYO night with a small corkage charge. Food menu coming very soon.

Embassy Cafe 17 | 12 | 2016

Herbivore at the Embassy cafe for the usual round of brunch, lunch & sweet treats Saturday 11 – 5. Won’t be there on Christmas Eve but back for New Years Eve with a special small plates menu running in the evening until late. More details coming soon.

Herbivore033: Counter Culture/Herbivore x Riverside Sourdough

The weekend of the 3rd & 4th December sees Herbivore teaming up with Riverside Sourdough to create a special brunch and lunch menu to showcase perhaps the best bread available in Cardiff right now.  Organic, handmade and bloody delicious. Everything will be freshly baked on the day – no menu details yet but expect things on toast, a sandwich or two, brioche, ice cream and croissant. More details about Riverside Sourdough and their products here.

The menu will be on offer for the usual Herbivore Embassy ours of 11 – 5 on both Saturday & Sunday. This one’s a la carte rather than supper club style so no need to book.

Embassy Cafe 20|08|2016

Saturdays mean brunch and lunch from Herbivore at the Embassy Cafe, Cathays Terrace. This week sees a couple of new things on the menu: sweetcorn & quinoa cakes with a smokey tomato & chipotle sauce and a black beluga lentil salad with roast beets and feta cheese. I’ve been out in the hedgerows again (scratched to bits in fact) so there will be blackberry and apple muffins baked fresh on Saturday morning. Menu details here. See you there.
