Eat your greens

We all know that eating our greens is good for us and for Melanie Yates, this is a lifelong passion.

To encourage us to eat more veggies Mel, who for the last decade has run the Riverford Organic vegbox delivery franchise in Warwick, is hosting a Supper Club at Fusca Café in Ryton Organic Gardens.

The four course dinner also includes a glass of bubbly and introduction to Riverford, with plenty of cooking tips.

Mel says; “At Riverford we are all about growing great tasting vegetables and enjoying the joy of home cooking.  I am a little veg nerd, so marry this love for growing and delivering vegboxes with a vegetarian / vegan restaurant based at Ryton Organic Gardens, and we are set for an evening of amazing food.”

Sample dishes include Jerusalem artichoke salad, sweet potato, chestnut mushroom, oregano and chervil tart served with roasted minted potatoes and steamed purple sprouted broccoli with ginger poached pear and honeyed crème fraiche to finish.

Mel’s supper club is on Thursday 21 May. Dinner starts at 7.30pm, tickets are £22.50 and available on Eventbrite along with the menu. Email Mel for more details
