Mildreds Vegan Cookbook : Exclusive Pre-Sale

We are excited to offer you the exclusive opportunity to purchase ‘Mildreds Vegan Cookbook’ two weeks prior to publication. 

The cookbook was written by Daniel Acevedo and Sarah Wasserman.

This is what Daniel, our executive head chef, had to say about the new book.

 

What was the inspiration behind writing an all vegan cookbook?

 

After the success of Mildreds Vegetarian cookbook it was a natural progression to follow up with the challenge of writing a vegan cookbook

 

Has it been more of a challenge making this cookbook vegan?

 

No not at all, a lot of our dishes are vegan anyway and we are constantly in the kitchen working on creating new and inspiring recipes. What’s really exciting at the moment is that vegan cooking is at the forefront of innovation.

 

Is this book just for vegans?

 

This book is for anyone who loves food and cooking. What’s great is to see less and less of a divide between vegans, flexiarians and meat-eaters.

There’s a mixture of everything from healthier options to comfort food, there’s even a few junk food recipes in there as well for those certain days when nothing else will do.

 

 

Are we going to see any of our Mildreds favourites from the menu in the cookbook?

 

We’ve included different adaptations of some classic dishes and previous dishes that have been on our menu in the past. There is even a dish that our ex-chef Gillian Snowball had on the menu when I started here as a young Chef de Partie.

 

What are the recipes you are most excited to share with us?

 

As my Mother-in-law is Polish, a recent inspiration, for me, has been experimenting with natural fermentation and adapting Polish family recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation.

to the paste add:

2tsp salt

2tsp turmeric powder

1 stick cinnamon

1tbsp curry powder (see recipe)

 

Fry for a further 2-3 min then add the following ingredients

 

1600ml coconut cream

100g creamed coconut paste

Veganuary Detox Salad Recipe

DETOX SALAD

We’ll be sharing vegan recipes every Saturday in January in support of Veganuary! This week we’re showing you how to assemble our famous Detox Salad. You can also find it on page 89 in ‘Mildreds the Cookbook’

This salad has been a staple on our menu for many, many years. It’s 100 per cent organic in the restaurant as we use only organic fruit and veg to prepare it; if you’re making it up at home then this choice is entirely up to you. For those of you who own a mandolin, use it here to cut your fennel into perfect paper-thin slices. Just be careful of your fingers!

(SERVES 6-8 AS A STARTER)

  • 6 carrots, peeled and grated
  • 3 medium beetroot, peeled and grated
  • 1 small fennel bulb, very finely sliced
  • 50g mixed bean sprouts , 
  • 100g sultanas
  • 25g sunflower seeds, toasted
  • 25g Pumpkin seeds
  • 50ml  extra virgin olive oil
  • handful of coriander leaves, to garnish

 

FOR THE DRESSING

  • 1cm piece of fresh root ginger
  • juice of 2 large oranges
  • 60ml non-pasteurized apple juice
  • 40ml  lime juice

 

To make the dressing, peel and finely dice the ginger. Using the flat side of your knife, press down on the ginger pieces to release any excess juice. (Alternatively, if you have a juicing machine, peel and juice the ginger.) Put the diced or juiced ginger into a small jar along with the remainder of the dressing ingredients, pop the lid on and shake well.

Assemble all the salad ingredients in a large mixing bowl and toss together well. Drizzle over the dressing and serve, garnished with coriander leaves.

The wait is finally over: brand new summer dishes!

 

We have been rather quiet this June perfecting our new summer menu, with inspiration taken from some of the world’s more fortunate climates. Allow your taste buds to take a journey around the globe: from the Mediterranean, to South East Asia and the ‘Deep South’ with a variety of vibrant, flavourful dishes.

 

Small plates

 

 

 

We’ve allowed chunky watermelon pieces to ripen enough for optimum sweetness, pairing them with sour tomatoes. Shiso leaf and yuzu dressing. A beautiful dish to behold!

 

 

Is there anything more pretty than these Sicilian tomatoes? They sit atop creamy, savoury cheese. The acidity of the tomato and lemon delicately offsets the density of the cheese – kalamata olives make it moreish.

 

 

Simplicity is often best, and this dish proves that! Crunchy baby gem lettuce is bathed in luxurious vegan salad cream; smoked pecans add a hickory depth, and aromatic chives cut through the decadent dressing.

 

 

An exciting first for Mildreds, we have just introduced out very first Pizzetta – a classic, crusty base is topped with soft salty-sweet mozzarella, herby garlic and basil sauce and meaty mushrooms. A lighter way to enjoy pizza!

 

Large plates

 

 

The fried chick’n is perfectly crispy on the outside, remaining succulent on the inside; it’s accompanied by earthy coleslaw and sweet potato fries.

 

 

Say ‘xin chao!’ to our vegan take on a Vietnamese classic, ‘bun thit nuong’. A fresher way to enjoy the spirit of a summer: BBQ flavours with a crunchy salad, tangy pickles and sticky rice noodles. Rất ngon!

 

Puddings

 

 

If you’ve been longing for the return of Mildreds’ brownie, you’ll be relieved to know: our infamous brownie is back, now in a pool of salted caramel!

 

 

Sicilian lemons make a reappearance on our summer menu, this time caramelised to enliven a sumptuous baked cheesecake.

 

 

If you thought Summer was the wrong season for crumbles, you probably haven’t spent many in the UK! For those typical British summer days, with a slight bite in the air, you’ll appreciate the fruit crumble with ice cream.

 

 

Subtle Asian pandan adds a fragrant depth to this silky panna cotta, served with lightly floral hibiscus-scented lychees. You won’t believe it’s vegan!

 

 

Don’t forget everyone’s favourite vegan-raw-gluten-free-sugar-free-guilt-free after dinner balls!
