Wild Food Café in colourful Neal’s Yard, Covent Garden, London, is my very favourite place to eat when I am in town. Go into Neal’s Yard and look up! Wild Food Café is above your head on the first floor.
Wild Food Café, the much loved creation of Joel and Aiste, is a raw-centric, vegan / vegetarian eatery where magic food is created every day.
Joel and Aiste are passionate about wild, fresh, rainbow-coloured ingredients and beautiful, exciting dishes created around the art and science of feeling great. They source the ingredients used in their restaurant from local independent suppliers and organic producers as much possible. I love the fact that they always try to include wild foraged food in their recipes. It gives such an ” in touch with nature” feel to their food which is always made fresh on the promises.
When you go and eat there, do be sure to take your camera phone as, I can assure you that, you will want to take photographs of your meals! I hope I see you there sometime soon!
Wild Food Café Course….
So this weekend I attended the 2 day immersion course, a truly “Wild Intro to Raw Food”. Yum Yum YUM!
This was 2 wonderful days packed full of love, laughter, raw food, exercise(!), raw chocolate, excellent information, new friends, and fun. Playing with food and experimentation is very much encouraged. Thank goodness, I have now met some other people who do not follow recipes to the letter! Joel and Aiste, create their own brand of alchemy – the Alchemy of Appreciation. The not very artistic photo above was my attempt at a stuffed avocado with mango salad, mixed green leaves, alfalfa sprouts and flowers. I also sampled some fresh sea purslane which was divine.
I didn’t take a group photo as such but, when I get the official one from Aiste, I will publish it here!
Thank you, Aiste and Joel, together with those patient and kindly souls that continually did all the clearing and washing up with such good grace, from the Wild food Café. Thank you to all the course participants. It was great to meet you all. It was an amazing weekend. I loved “playing with my food”!
