Food: Cambridge Cookery launches gourmet takeaway
Cambridge Cookery has added another string to its take-out bow: gourmet dinners. Chef Tine Roche, MD of the cafe, bakery, bistro and cookery school, is creating a multi-course menu, spanning starters, mains, desserts, cheese plate and petit fours, every week with her Cordon Bleu-trained team.
Three mix-and-match options will be available for starter, main course and dessert, devised, as always, around in-season, locally sourced produce. In keeping with Cambridge Cookery’s modern Italian-meets-French bistro style, example dishes include langoustine with homemade lemon mayonnaise (£7.50), navarin of new-season veg (£14) and vanilla panna cotta (£6). A bottle of artisan Italian wine can be added.
The team are offering one-tray family meals too, one plant-based and one containing animal protein each week, each serving four to six people (£28).
The meals can be picked up from the cafe when it’s open for social-distancing purchase of takeaway coffee, cake, salads, sandwiches, tarts and Inder’s Kitchen curries.
* Cambridge Cookery, at Homerton Gardens off Purbeck Road, is open 9am to 1pm, Thursday to Sunday, with a social-distancing queue system operating on the front terrace and lawn. See cambridgecookery.com for more.
