28.02.2018- On the Menu: Scratch Menu at Spring, Somerset House

Wednesday, 28 February 2018

Regular perusers of these pages will be well aware of the fact that one of my favourite pursuits in life is eating. Whether it's rustling up something at home or visiting a new restaurant, there's always something lovely and relaxing about enjoying something truly tasty- especially when it's something which is for a good cause too. You might remember that I visited Spring at Somerset House for the first time about a year or so ago, shortly after it had opened. Since then, the team there have launched an evening Scratch Menu- a specifically curated selection of dishes made from ingredients which would otherwise not be used- with the aim of drawing attention to how much food is wasted around the world every year...enough to feed over 800 million people! Last week, I was lucky enough to pop along to sample the menu and enjoy the ambiance of this beautiful venue:


With the dishes on offer on the Scratch Menu changing every day, you're guaranteed something unique, perfectly prepared and a menu which is beautifully balanced. Last Thursday the starter was a cabbage salad, dressed impeccably and full of flavour. Next up, a delicate fish tart and greens, followed by blood orange cake for dessert. Needless to say that everything was wonderfully flavoursome, and each course sat really well together as a three-part meal too- even more impressive given that the menu is prepared from scratch each day. I'm definitely going to be back to sample more soon! 

Have you tried any new restaurants recently?
