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… 

Carlin Peammus

These are peas of many names: Black, Maple, Grey, Black, Grey Badgers, Pidgeon Peas, Parched Peas. They are a traditional northern food eating during Lent, the Sunday before Palm Sunday. Parched peas are served in Manchester, cooked peas, served hot or cold with a little salt and vinegar in Lancashire but both are eaten around or on Bonfire Night, during fire displays and in Christmas time. Carlin peas are amazing with their distinctive texture and nuttiness. They pair perfectly with a traditional dish like shepherd’s pie, stew or salads. I love black peas and use it to make delicious peammus which is served with grossini. Find the recipe here…

Grissini - Crispy Italian Breadsticks

As a snack – perfect. For dipping – even better. Crispy Italian Breadsticks widely called Grissini, are served in restaurants as an appetizer accompanied by antipasti such as olives, cheese and cured meat. They are made of flour, yeast, water and olive oil, shaped by hand and baked in high temperature ideally in a wood-burning oven. Breadsticks are essentially all delicious golden-brown crust and that beautiful crust makes them so addictive. Make grissini at home as a party nibble.  Bake them as you like - plain or flavoured, sprinkled with sesame seeds, poppy seeds or sea salt before baking. Serve with favourite hummus or cocktails.
