It was my Mum’s and my birthdays this week. On Tuesday we decided to go to Holly Redmans new Paleo restaurant in Notting Hill called Pure Taste.
We have both experienced her amazing cooking at her pop-up restaurant at Jeremy’s in Borde Hill, Sussex.
I had also hosted a cooking demonstration by Holly for my clients. Her food is like a party for my taste buds!
Paleo style eating has been around for a few thousand years! The idea is that we go back to eating real food and a diet much like we ate in Palaeolithic times. I dont know much about the science and research behind it but some of it makes sense to me. Basically its eating meat/fish and vegetable, no dairy or grains. I can hear you gasp……WTF can I eat?? This is where Holly’s amazing food comes in. Who says healthy has to be boring? Now I know most busy Mum’s won’t be rustling up this kind of menu to the hungry hoards but I defo had some take home ideas. I also have Holly’s recipe book which helps.
Every time we ate something, we waited for the flavours to work their way over our awaiting taste buds. Lot’s of OMG, wow and Mmmmmmm’s were heard.
Here is what we ate……yes I know I won’t ever be a food photographer!
We started with…..
We finished by sharing two desserts
- Tonka bean cheesecake, chocolate & coffee.
- Chocolate lava cake, ginger ice cream & chocolate shard.
