THE ART OF FORAGING
Thursday 4th May 2017
Welcome to the first in a series of events we’re calling #VegTalks (see what we did there). Our inaugural event will take place on Thursday 4th May at The Gate Seymour Place and is timed to celebrate London Craft Week 2017 where we are looking at The Art of Foraging. Our founder Michael Daniel will be talking about his long involvement in this ages old art, together with our Head of Food Yossi Edri who will be discussing using seasonal foraged produce in our menus. We will be preparing items for you to sample made from ingredients such as wild garlic, asparagus and nettles. Each session will last for half an hour and there will be two sessions, at 18:00 and 18:45. The event is free but pre-booking is absolutely essential as places are limited. To reserve your place please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
THE GATE #LOVEPULSES
Yossi Edri, Head of Food at The Gate talks about pulses on Global Pulse Day 2017 at The Gate Islington.
Pulses, also known as grain legumes, are a group of 12 crops that includes dry beans, dry peas, chickpeas and lentils. They are high in protein, fibre, and various vitamins, provide amino acids, and are hearty crops. Not only do pulses provide countless health benefits such as helping decrease blood cholesterol levels and aiding digestion and regularity, they also play a pivotal role in sustainability as they require less fertilisers than other crops and are a low carbon source of protein.
Alongside this it’s also important to recognise the economical importance of pulses. Did you know that 70% of pulses produced globally come from developing countries such as India, which produces a quarter of the world’s pulses. It is with this in mind that The Gate Restaurant is proud to support the IYOP and join forces “To act for a healthy, hunger-free and sustainable world.”
The Gate Restaurant was excited to host Pulse Feast UK in our Islington branch to celebrate Global Pulse Day 2017 where guests were treated to an international menu featuring all kinds of pulses.
