Hop infusion!

We kicked off our ‘Craft Food Series’ with a bang last night serving all manner of CELIA inspired dishes including hearty beef goulash with creamy mash, sticky chicken wings and even a CELIA sundae!


We used CELIA in ALL of our dishes.. yes ALL of them to truly showcase how versatile this beautiful lager can be and to highlight how well CELIA can complement your meal and add an extra dimension to your cooking.

For starters we served up baked Camembert and honey glazed chicken wings with a blue cheese aioli.



We marinated our camembert in CELIA and a special blend of spices before baking ‘en papillote’ until gooey inside, this was served with gorgeous toasted brioche and caramelised red onion jam.

The mains consisted of gorgeous New Zealand leg of lamb on a curly kale and leek ragout on rosemary mash with a CELIA infused jus.





Slow cooked beef and beer goulash with creamy mash



Wild mushroom and red pepper risotto, which we made using Riso gallo Arborio rice and CELIA of course!


To top it all off we created a CELIA sundae with help from the wonderful gelato experts of Lab G in Brixton Village, we served this with a nutty gooey brownie, marshmallows and cinder toffee.

We also created a delicate raspberry and pistachio crème brulee

We teamed up with Riso Gallo using their award winning gluten free pasta which tastes akin to regular pasta – our dinners were certainly pleasantly surprised by the taste. We also teamed up with Lina stores to bring authentic Italian ingredients to all dishes you can now buy Riso Gallo’s gluten free pasta in the Soho branch of Lina stores.

Our chef Andrea Zagatti worked hard to present diners with interesting pasta dishes rather than the regular choices that we have become so accustomed to. One of the most popular dishes was smoked sausage with roasted pumpkin along with the aged speck, rocket and balsamic glaze pasta that was on offer.

DSC_3946 DSC_3974

We started the night off with a welcome drink featuring either a bottle of our gluten free lager CELIA or an Aperitif of Domaine du Landreau Cremant de Loire 2005.



For our first course we teamed up with Riso Gallo and created a wonderfully rich and creamy saffron risotto burger, this was served with Humble Grape wine Domaine des Maréchaux Rosé 2012 which had a crisp dry finish.

Following our successful first course we served a Yellow fin tuna ceviche burger with seaweed mayo, alongside Chateau Crabitey Graves 2010 courtesy of Humble Grape.


As if that wasn’t enough we then served up a gorgeous melt in the mouth Duck confit burger with flambeed figs, Roquefort and crispy pancetta and paired amazingly with Domaine de La Martinette 2010.



Accompanying a smooth glass of Chateau Clos Bel Air Pomerol 2006 was our fourth course of buffalo burger with Chanterelle mushrooms on a potato pancake.


And finally to truly finish off the night in style we concluded with a Vozar’s special of beef burger with poached quail egg, truffle oil and wild garlic mayo paired with Château Ducru-Beaucaillou La Croix de Beaucaillou Saint-Julien 2006.


Our Burgers & Bordeaux event was the first of many more amazing Pop Up nights to come; keep your eyes peeled for information and tickets to come!

Brazil v Mexico Fusion Pop Up

_DSC0014On Tuesday the 17th of June we hosted a memorable pop up in honour of the Brazil v Mexico World Cup game. As well as turning our internal dining room into a seating area for avid football fans to watch the game, we created a fusion menu of both Brazilian and Mexican food as shown below. We also partnered up with FAIR who created some amazing gluten free cocktails.

DSC_3569   DSC_3579

Our incredibly creative Brazilian Head Chef Marcelo was able to showcase his knowledge of authentic Brazilian food as well as create some truly mouth watering Mexican dishes. Of course all of these dishes came with the benefit of being completely gluten free!

DSC_3891 DSC_3844

By sourcing excellent gluten free flours and ingredients like cassava flour, polenta and tapioca flour we were able to create dishes such as cheese breads and tortillas completely gluten free! One of our most popular dishes on the night was the fried cassava and polenta. Marcelo has kindly passed on his recipe for fried polenta. It is hassle free and easy to put together, it can also be prepared the night before. This recipe is extremely versatile and you are able to alter the flavour according to your taste, for example you can use a stock and spices of your choice.

Fried Polenta:


 1 kg bag of pre cooked polenta

2 litres of water (vegetable stock if you want to add flavour)

1 onion, chopped

3 cloves of garlic, chopped

1 red chilli, chopped

1 tbsp paprika and other spices if required

Deep fryer or a deep pan with vegetable oil


 Prepare a deep baking tray and grease with oil

  1. Heat a tbsp of oil in a deep saucepan and gently fry the onions until softened, add the garlic and chilli until golden
  2. Add 2 litres of water/stock to the pan, allow it to come to the boil and add the polenta
  3. Keep stirring for up to 5 minutes until it forms a thick paste and comes together
  4. Pour into the greased tray, allow to cool then place in the fridge (overnight if you have time) lightly covered with cling film
  5. When set, cut into shapes
  6. Heat your deep fat fryer to 170 degrees and fry the pieces until golden

Serve with a hummus dip or a flavoured mayonnaise. Here we served the dish with Vozar’s special mayo!
