MAY 2022

Multi-award winning plant-based chef Chantelle Nicholson proves here that creativity and imagination are not sacrificed in plant-based cuisine. This is a generous, multi-layered and complexly flavoured dish. At its base we have a chickpea pancake infused with coconut cream. British asparagus is sauteed in sesame oil with samphire for natural salinity. Jersey royal potatoes provide their unique and seasonal, buttery sweetness. Expect to be making a deliciously light and moreish plant-forward aioliwith garlic and red miso. Freshness and heat come in the form of an invigorating green chilli salsa, which is full of mint and coriander. Watercress provides a palette cleansing, peppery finish to this clever and robust plate.

Chantelle will tell you about his creation, below:

**Disco Rarities**

Quite possibly one of the most instantly recognisable genres in the history of music, Disco is a demographic-busting movement whose influence is still seismic to this day.

Walk into the right neon-lit bar in any city in the world on a Saturday night and the chances are you’ll be greeted by the sight of DJ elbow deep in a crate of outlandishly adjourned vinyl as a heady soundtrack of Donna Summer, Chic, Rick James et al. gets your head involuntarily nodding along.

Hit the real jackpot, however, and your selector might eschew the Sister Sledge and go deeper...
