Food News: The new eateries to check out now
Cambridge’s gelato king, Jack van Praag, is opening a second scoop shop in the city centre. Following the success of the Bene’t Street branch of Jack’s Gelato - which, open year-round, is famed for its home-recipe hot chocolate as well as ices - he’s taken on premises on All Saints’ Passage, where The Cambridge Cheese Co. and chocolate shop Hill St. are neighbours. Says Jack, announcing the move on social media: “Could there be a better time to open a retail shop? Perhaps. But we have always been driven more by delight, excitement and beauty than by spreadsheets and bean counting.”
Stem + Glory, Cambridge’s multi-award-winning vegan food enterprise, is relocating from King Street to the CB1 station development. Already open for deliveries only, the dine-in space is hoped to follow in October. In a statement, the team say: “This site will allow us to build a Covid safe environment, with a far greater kitchen area to grow our delivery service and catering which we've been inundated with requests for. We are very excited to bring the all-new full Stem + Glory concept to our home town!”
Hildersham’s Pear & Olive - already famous for its Scratch Kitchen, helmed by French chef Gael Lecolley - has launched an onesite farmshop and cafe, The Pantry. From fresh bread, bakes, fruit and veg to store-cupboard staples on the shop shelves and artisan sandwiches and homemade cakes on the cafe menu, all available to take away, it’s open every day but Tuesday.
