Creme de abobrinha-rajada [coquille Saint-Jacques], uma variedade italiana com listras que tem sabor mais pronunciado que a maioria e uma textura amanteigada, quase lisa, e alho francês [alho-poró], recebeu no top, vieiras grelhadas na manteiga ghee. Na taça, Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses 2003 da Cooperativa La Chablisienne, fundada em 1923 por um grupo de viticultores liderados por Abbé Balitran, varietal [100%] da uva Chardonnay.

This week we are tasting:
Starvecrow Natural Cyder
750ml bottle £13 or £2.50 a flute - yes we like to drink this gently sparkling, refreshing, dry cyder like Prosecco.
Pairs well especially with Scallops, Apple and Pancetta starter.
Great find from @butlerswinecellar

Delicious spread @thefremontdiner in a Sonoma, CA. Brunch is always better when you're together with a great company. A must rule: order more plates than the sitting bodies and share family style. Food always tastes better this way.
💜Sourdough toast with activated charcoal & beet hummus, avocado, cherry tomatoes and pea sprouts. 💥Trust me, it's a breakthrough 💥
Charcoal + pulses is a new match made in heaven 🙌🏼
Why? The answer is below...
Lately the activated charcoal foods and drinks trend has been growing. Probably it's a bold black answer to all the rainbow and unicorn foods.
People call it a magical detox supplement now and add it to all kinds of foods, such as ice creams, coffees, cocktails, detox lemonades..and the list goes on...the only issue that some of these combinations don't work (nutritionally) and even have negative impact in the end. Charcoal absorbs not only "toxins", but other vital nutrients and vitamins from foods. So when you blend it with "detox juice" it will also absorb all the great stuff from it, so you won't get the desired effect - "detoxified" and nutritionally charged with all the vitamins and minerals.
So why activated charcoal hummus? Well - It has a perfect match really...
Hummus is made from chickpeas. And all the pulses/legumes (including chickpeas) contain particular sugar (oligosaccharides) which is difficult to digest for the human body. This causes GI discomfort, bloating, flatulence/meteorism. Activated charcoal on the other hand relieves these symptoms...
So yeah...adding charcoal to foods could be great and interesting, you just need to do it right!
Also...mixing charcoal with beet creates instagram-friendly deep-purple colour not effecting flavour or taste of hummus 💜🖤 Recipe coming shortly 😋
