Take a secluded urban green space, sow and grow a host of vegetables, herbs and flowers. Fire up a wood-burning stove or two , gently smoke something tasty overnight, open a bottle of something special…Welcome to our secret garden.
We will present three themes over five dates on alternate Sunday afternoons
Brixton meets Crete
With one foot on Brixton hill and one on Crete, sample flame scorched octopus, skordalia, wild greens, tzatziki and lamb cooked with aromatic herbs from our very own mountain in miniature.
Picnic on an English lawn: At the height of summer, a lazy luxury picnic on an English lawn. Whole poached salmon, home-smoked coronation chicken , pork pie, pickles and garden fizz. Jelly and ice cream. We might even have the cricket on in the background.
Sunday BBQ: Chipotle, molasses and lashings of smoke as we present our take on all things BBQ. Maple cured bacon chops, pulled beef, fiery relishes and savoury jams. We’re gonna need a bigger napkin!
We’ll also serve up elements from our tiny garden smokery along with garden grown salads, homemade ice-creams, our own soft cheeses and all the cordials, pickles and preserves you’d expect from Cornercopia’s larder.
Our ‘Secret Garden’ is an oasis of green hidden behind houses and rescued from developers. This is Brixton Cornercopia’s kitchen garden, a constant source of inspiration and a major influence on our approach to food and eating.
