Polly Eats London at Liberté Chérie

Carlin Peammus and Grossini at Liberté Chérie in the heart of Notting Hill. We were given the opportunity to offer our super healthy organic vegan dip and homemade crusty grossini to the customers of Zero Waste Grocery Shop located on Portobello Road. Liberté Chérie, which provides Notting Hill residents and the hordes of tourists with fine food, is run by Charles Pelletier, a Frenchman with a background in Michelin starred restaurant Serge Et Le Phoque in Hong Kong. Our Peammus is currently available at Liberté Chérie but we are coming back to Charles with a new butch of the pea hummus this Saturday. More about our Notting Hill Adventure here… 

Hummus (Houmous)

Really good hummus is not a five-minute job. You have to put a little work in to get the marvellous result. Dried chickpeas, soaked in cold water overnight and then cooked are essential and can never be replaced by canned ones. There are no substitutes for fresh garlic and freshly squeezed lemon juice which gives hummus citrusy flavour. Nutty and lightly bitter Tahini should be as fresh as possible and its flavour in the mixture only perceptible. Fresh hummus with a sprinkling of paprika and a drizzle of olive oil is the best. Serve with flatbread, crusty toasts or as a dip for fresh vegs. Find the recipe here…
