The lovely Kate Lewis excelled herself when she created a 10 day pop up in Brixton Village. I popped down last night and sampled a variety of dishes ranging from cold pickled celeriac lasagne, pea shoot and micro cress salad with pea and truffle veloute – Delicious. Yellow Gazpacho – to die for, perfect for a hot balmy evening in the UK.I also tried the Avocado, Black Bean and corn cerviche with papaya jelly and plantain crisp – this was a serious taste sensation.
The delicious series of starters was followed by equally sumptuous mains; Spiced lentil parcel, smoked ratatouille and salsa verde – another triumph, jerk sweet potato and vegetable curry a smooth and creamy taste sensation and my favourite, Herbed tempeh roast served with crushed root vegetables, green beans and confit garlic mash with wild mushroom gravy.
Full though I was I managed to taste a range of desserts, a mango puree – one of the best I have had and believe me I’ve had many! And an old favourite of the Asparagasm team; Bitter chocolate, Avocado and chilli Terrine served with a vanilla cream. Yumm heaven is the only way to describe this.The perfect round off to the perfect meal.
An amazing array of dishes, delicious combinations, textures and tastes, super healthy and above all served with a funky style and panache – Asparagasm set out to do what no one else has managed – to create asspirational fine vegan healthy and delicious dining of an extraordinary standard served with a whole heap of taste and satisfaction. They’ve done this and more – they are truly inspirational.
