Looking for an experienced barista to travel to Rwanda

A friend of ours is setting up a cafe project in Kigali, Rwanda and they are looking for  an experienced barista to help train local staff

Are you an experienced barista with a passion for good coffee, travel and training people?  We are looking for someone who can help to train our local staff in a new café opening in Kigali in August 2014 in Rwanda. Located within the only international book shop within this emerging and dynamic city, the café, which has a seating space  for 22 people – including a small roof terrace – and exceptional views over the city, will be a meeting point for the local and international community.

You will spend time training 3 staff members on how to make exceptional quality coffee, as well as having the opportunity to help source (and visit plantations and roasting centres) of some of the best coffee in the country. People with additional skills such as café management will be given preference.

Rwanda, the land of 1000 hills, and its clean and crisp capital Kigali offer a great insight into the emerging economies of Africa. In return for 1-2 month work (minimum 6 hours per day, 5 days per week equivalent), we will offer you full accommodation and a small monthly living allowance. Flights are not covered. If you are interested please contact maiagedde@gmail.com by 15 July 2014.

An August start date is preferable.

Announcing Preservastory – June 14th, August 8 & 9th

PreservaStory invites you to the first series of dinners celebrating the story of preserved ingredients.
Instead of “fresh, seasonal and local” we serve “not fresh but aged, not necessarily in season and globally sourced” ingredients to create a menu of surprising tastes. The menu is the story of food which forms the basis of our global culture. 
presevastory_salmon roll
Since agriculture emerged, surplus from harvests was preserved in different ways to delay the need for instant consumption. This allowed ingredients to be cooked when required, which lead to populations to grow. It became possible to transport food to markets which soon formed the nucleus for villages and cities. Global trade found its origin in preserved foodstuff satisfying our craving for variety and excitement, leading to the diverse diet we enjoy today.
Depending on the latitude and climate, various methods to preserve food were developed by different cultures around the globe. Incidentally similar techniques were adopted in geographies far apart, and so Eastern European Sauerkraut is fermented similarly to Korean Kimchi. Techniques include drying, smoking, tinning, freezing, jellying, pickling and fermentation. The ageing processes create wide ranging flavours which are typical for many cultures.
preserved_eggs-presevastory
Preservastory is starting as a dinner club and will become a place where you taste and discover ingredients preserved in traditional and also recently developed innovative techniques. The ingredients featured on the menu are available from the delicatessen shop. In time an network of Preservastores will start in places around the world, bringing together and sharing the stories of communities, whilst developing new ways to create sustainable food.
The first menu showcases a range of techniques of dried, fermented, pickled and smoked ingredients, brought together in a narrative of courses.
preservaStory menu I

kimchi & sauerkraut
preserved egg
fried cheese  and chutney
ajo blanco 
almond soup
fruit jelly
smoked salmon summer roll & crispy salmon skin & pickled vegetables and apple horseradish
dried salt cod potato bake and IPA

carlsbader oblaten torte and lychees
preservastory_cheese balls
Price £29 Reserve your place on Eventbrite 
Further dates Friday 8 August and Saturday 9 August
Each of the menus explores different ingredients. The first menu includes fish. Unfortunately we will not be able to accommodate alternative requirements and the menu includes nuts.

Wine Wednesdays

Event Photo

A Grape Night In are back for a brand new run of #WineWednesdays, a series that is part of their sell-out pop-up wine bar events. This year the girls are taking #WineWednesdays On Tour, as they depart on a wine tasting adventure to a series of destinations around the world; stopping off in cities, at the beach, and off the beaten track.

This Summer the girls are staying in their home neighbourhood of south London, this time popping up at Brixton Cornercopia in Brixton Village Market. #WineWednesdays on tour will hit the departure lounge on Wednesday nights from 4th June.

In June the girls will be stopping over off at THE CITIES which make the short list of city break destinations, using a range of interesting wines to represent the locations distinct personalities. Expect to discover unheard of grape varieties and lesser-know regions as they fit the likes of Tokyo, Dubai, and New York into a glass. As you explore the wines which allow you to pretend you are somewhere a little more exotic; try a selection of delicious matching small plates along the way, from our resident chef The Cheshire Cat.

There are two options available. Go for the mini-tasting experience and savour a wine flight consisting of three beautiful wines paired with three tantalising dishes. The girls will be on hand to guide you through the flavours, feed in tidbits of information and answer any questions where needed. All of this plus a welcome cocktail for an amazing £25.

Bookings can be made through: Edible Experiences

Or if you are more interested in a casual meet up with friends you can still drop for a seat and order from the menu at your leisure. Simply drop by or book a table to guarantee your spot (email reservations@agrapenightin.co.uk).
