I recently had the pleasure of filming Cyrus Todiwala, (chef and owner of Café Spice Namasté), cook a dish for NHS Sustainability Day.
NHS Sustainability Day, hosted by Barts Health NHS Trust is intended to initiate action around sustainability for the Trust and community. There will be a number of events happening on the day, there are celebrities endorsing the day and there are a variety of ways to get involved. For more information, have a look at the website.
Cyrus Todiwala came up with a Pink Fir Apple Potato with Sesame Seed recipe. Pink fir apple potatoes are in season at the moment and make a delicious, healthy and easy to cook recipe. The following video was filmed in Café Spice Namasté:
It was fantastic to hear how all of the ingredients used were locally sourced, seasonal and organic. And, I can vouch for how easy it is to cook! Here is a version I made:
and I used the left over ginger skins to flavor tea. A trick Cyrus taught us (but which unfortunately had to be left out of the edit)
I can’t wait to visit the restaurant and try more food on the menu.
