The Kitchen

Lunch is served from 12-2pm Thursday to Saturday, but otherwise we offer a selection of cakes and desserts, as well as tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and smoothies. As the vast majority of our fresh produce is locally sourced, our menu will change according to what’s available and in season. All our food is organic.

Our other kitchen activities include a food-to-go service, cooking workshops and demonstrations, and monthly supper club events. You’ll find lots more information (including our food philosophy) below.

Freshly prepared food is available to order through our online food shop and can be collected from our café during opening hours Thursday to Saturday.

  • Beetroot and bean burgers
  • Dish of the week (a stew or curry that changes week to week)
  • Irish soda bread
  • Hummus (original, maple carrot and cumin; roasted beetroot)
  • Carrot cake
  • Chocolate and coconut cake
  • Banana bread

Please feel free to get in touch with 
any special requests.

Cooking Demonstrations

We all know that healthier living means including more vegetables in our diet, but it isn’t always easy to know where to start, especially if our shopping list and cooking repertoire tends to stay the same week to week. Our workshops aim to introduce you to new ingredients and new ways of preparing food, and to give you the tools and the confidence you need to be more experimental in the kitchen. Workshops are tailored as far as possible to reflect the needs and priorities of the participants, or to meet the objectives of the organisation hosting the event. This may mean a focus on one or more of the following:

  • Easy, nutritious meals for busy families
  • Protein-rich meals (cooking with beans, lentils, chickpeas, quinoa, tofu, seitan)
  • Brilliant breakfasts and no-fuss lunch boxes
  • Cooking with kids
  • Getting the most out of seasonal vegetables
  • The Raw Fix: smoothies, soups and salads
  • Plant-based race nutrition for athletes
  • Dinner parties and cooking to impress
  • Plant-based comfort food
  • Baking and desserts without butter, eggs and cream
  • Vegan cuisine from around the world

For upcoming cooking demonstrations, please see our events page. If you are interested in organising a private workshop for yourself or a group of friends, please get in touch and we’ll design a programme to suit your needs. If you would like more information on our corporate events and healthy eating workshops, you can download our flyer.

Our Food Philosophy: Grow. Cook. Eat. Share.

We prioritise organic, seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. 

We are big fans of vegetables, grains and legumes. We also love animals, so you won’t find them in our food or drinks.

All of our food is freshly cooked onsite by Claire and Philippe. We hope you will enjoy it, but we welcome your feedback on ways we can improve our offering and our service.
