CLEMENTINES IN SEASON, AND AT THEIR BEST
Clementines are back in season at Mithas. Clementines are a typically juicy and sweet member of the citrus family. They are less acidic than oranges making them absolutely perfect for creating some wonderful desserts.
Come along to Mithas and find out what we've been creating with this fabulous seasonal ingredient.
MITHAS USES SEASONAL PRODUCE
Bramley apples are currently in season, and at their best. Mithas is currently using these to produce some spectacular desserts.
At Mithas we realise the benefits of using and selecting seasonal produce. It's better for you, better for the planet, and it tastes absolutely wonderful too. Using seasonal produce helps to protect the environment. And because the food is not stored for long periods of time, it contains more nutrients.
MITHAS SUPPORTING ST COLUMBA'S HOSPICE
Throughout the year we are delighted to be supporting the work of a local charity. St Columba’s Hospice is currently going through a major rebuilding project and to help provide the necessary funds, we are holding monthly guest chef nights at Mithas. The aim of these evenings is to give specially invited chefs the chance to add their magic to the Mithas menu and all for a very good cause.
Roy Brett from Ondine was the first to take the challenge and he has been followed by Nick Nairn and the acclaimed London chef Cyrus Todiwala.
“All the evenings have been brilliant in different ways’, said Mithas owner Islam Mohammed. “The customers love the experience and it creates an amazing buzz in the kitchen. We’re also proud and delighted to be supporting such an important local charity”.
The Mithas Guest Chef programme will continue throughout 2012.
