The Colours and Flavours of Autumn

Organic Porcini Risotto Sito

October in London is always somehow exciting: colourful leaves are starting to fall all around Hyde Park, Frieze has just given us that artistic inspiration needed to get through a cold winter and, most of all, temperatures are stable and hopefully will remain so for a while. The colours and flavours of Autumn are amongst the most exciting in the kitchen: think of the smell of fresh porcini, the brown richness of chestnuts, the acidity of a pomegranate's red, or the beige shades of hummus.

If nature has given us colours, we at Rose & Mary try to reproduce them faithfully. We have put in a lot of effort in trying to best portray our dishes as naturally as possible. We style the pictures with our ingredients on the side, in a triumph of colours that renders the experience in a fuller and more effective way.

Think of how a green vegetables soup represents the season as well as a superfood bowl: warm and cosy, through the bitterness of kale and its antioxidant properties. They both visually remind you of that dark shade of green of those last few leaves that are about to turn brown. Another seasonal shade is the brown Organic Porcini Risotto - which is likely to be the king of the season in Piedmont, where Porcini mushrooms are picked right after a heavy rainstorm. We at Rose & Mary make it a healthy option with organic brown rice, a smart rice that eases your metabolism. Last but not least, the red of our pomegranate panna cotta, a dessert that is turning the most skeptical amongst you into huge fans. Just like those red leaves from that maple tree.

A palette of colours and flavours for the month.
Artistically yours,
The Rose & Mary Team

"Sharing is caring": how sharing a meal became a sign of love

Quinoa Broad Bean And Courgette Mini Burgers With Homemade Tzatziki Sito

Tonight at Rose&Mary we witnessed the funniest topical scene that every family has ever assisted to:
She goes: "Eat your five a day"
He goes: "But I don't like veggies"
She goes: "But I baked them just the way you like them"
He goes: "How about pizza?"
And so on and so forth. Unless you are married to Kate Moss or something, in which case please stop reading.

Become somewhat of a game. The decision to share is a well-known excuse for a girl to have two desserts on her own. Think of tasting the almond tart for yourself and then keep the brownie ready for tomorrow's breakfast (only the brave would dare, learn from the Masters). 

Uncertain on oxtail vs lamb? Just get a sharing plate and share the love: the hot and spicy chicken meze has proven to be one of your favourite dishes and it does present itself very well in case you are going on a hot date. But the one dish that every couple would agree on is the veggie mini burgers. Most people don't even realise they are actually made of broadbeans and quinoa: they are a delicious option and a no-fight guarantee. 
And, in case you are one of those going no-meat no-fish exclusively, we have the perfect option with two bowls, one with chicken and one with fresh tuna (in case you haven't heard, the poke is so the new sushi...).

Rose & Mary has an option for everyone. Sharing a meal is nothing but an excuse to eating off someone else’s plate :)
