In Organico Cafe yesterday a customer commented on her roasted aubergine and chickpea curry saying that it smelt and tasted amazing. 'I know why' she said 'it's because it is un-polluted food'.
As I carried on serving lunch I reflected on her comment. I think it is an excellent way to describe our food. We are not trying to serve Cordon Bleu. What we are trying to do is serve tasty, nutritious, clean 'un-polluted' food.
Today, our menu contains the following:
Organic Lentil and Pumpkin Stew served with Spelt Bread
Roasted Organic Aubergine and Chickpea Curry served with Organic Brown Rice
Spelt Pizza with sundried tomatoes and Fetta served with 2 Salads
