OK, so we’re planning not one but four pop-up events between now and Christmas. Three of them will be festive specials: something to think about if you are planning a yuletide knees-up this year. Details of these will appear in a day or so. In the meantime, we have a proper Autumn feast scheduled for Saturday November 1st… For our third event at the Cinnamon Tree Bakery we are offering you a sumptuous Autumn spread for omnivores, although as usual we there will also be veggievore options… Baskets of herbs and bread with marinated feta, olives and chillies Baked figs with fiery Bandari sausages (or goats’ cheese for veggies) Must-o-khiar – thick yoghurt with cucumber, raisins, walnuts and rose petals Plum and pistachio fattoush All served with warm Cinnamon Tree Flatbreads Prawn fessenjun: prawns served in a rich pomegranate and walnut sauce (or sweet potato fessenjun for veggies) Turmeric fried fish (or vegan kibbeh for veggies) with Persepolitan chips and mushy pea houmous Khoresht-e-Gharch – mushroom hotpot with split peas, served with spiced brown basmati rice Slow roasted garlicky lamb shanks (or Imam Biyaldi – baked stuffed aubergine – for vegetarians) served with saffron and herb couscous Cinnamon Tree Cardamom and Carrot Cake, served warm with a dollop of kaymak Coffee or Mint Tea The cost is £35.00 a head, and you can bring your own booze.
