This month, we are shaking things up in the kitchen by welcoming guest chef Holly Sugars of Food Envy. Holly takes over the Rose & Mary menu with her signature healthy, international dishes that come in equally delicious adult and children’s versions.
Once a busy private chef traveling between yachts and ski chalets to cook for high profile households, Holly decided to slow down and deepen her relationship to food and health. Now her expertise includes nutritional therapy, raw food cooking classes, and even advice on developing the palates of fussy young eaters. Her mission is to help families find new and exciting ways to make healthy eating part of their routine.
With her global travels and 18-month-old daughter Effie as inspirations, Holly creates flavourful meals that appeal to both kids and grown-ups. And with her philosophy that food should be tasty, wholesome and nutritious, she is a natural choice for a ‘working vacation’ in the Rose & Mary kitchen!
Holly’s menu includes starters with Mediterranean touches, such as a slow-roasted beetroot houmous and kosheri - an Egyptian classic - made with wild rice and French lentils. Among the main courses, a cannellini bean, butternut squash and blue cheese gratin combines complex, rich ingredients, while its kid-friendly counterpart subs cheddar for blue cheese and steamed courgettes for raw.
Though it’s in her name, there’s no added sugar in Holly’s desserts. Her avocado and cacao pot treat is beloved by kids and adults alike for its creamy decadence.
Welcome Holly into your kitchen tonight with an order from her special guest chef menu!
