Salt the Radish are supporting St. John’s Church N4 in their plans to develop a community garden to grow vegetables for their soup kitchen. We are a collection point for plastic bottles which will eventually be used to build a green house. We’re also going to lend a hand at their first community dig event where we will be preparing the site for growing vegetables. All are welcome. The event is on 22 October 2019 and runs from 11am until 6pm.
Yesterday Salt the Radish opened its doors for the first time to the hungry (hopefully) people of Finsbury Park. To say this has been a long journey is an understatement. I've been catering for yoga retreats and small events and dinners for a couple of years but the cafe plan has been bubbling around for much, much longer than that.
I've had to overcome a few obstacles on the way and I'm not out of the woods yet. Come in for a coffee and maybe I'll bore you with the whole story. This means that for a short period we will mostly be serving our signature salads as well as superb coffee, cakes and pastries.
In a month or so we will have a little refurb and re-open with the hot food menu. Think tempting brunch and lunch dishes, all the eggs, daal, shakshuka, most likely some avocados here and there.
Despite the problems, yesterday was amazing. We met loads of great people who were really supportive and enthusiastic and I just can't wait to share my food with them over the next few years.
