Recently I was introduced to Greenwich Pantry when I was asked to look what they had online and cook up a storm! Now normally a storm is what my kitchen looks like after I have attempted anything in the kitchen. However with ongoing changes in my lifestyle and kitchen I was really looking forward to taking a closer look at Greenwich Pantry.
“Greenwich Pantry is a retail outlet for authentic, gourmet, artisan and organic food, with a store that is a treasure trove of around 200 products selling direct to food enthusiasts in Greenwich and beyond (via online) “
After visiting the website, I was more than pleasantly surprised to see that food is obviously at the core of the Greenwich Pantry, with rice boutique and external catering offered alongside a wide range of organic and fair trade products and they even have fruit and veg boxes in the pipeline and some really fantastic recipes that you can download on-line.
After the food items arrived it was time to try my hand in the kitchen and make something …..
Now puddings are never normally my strong point and inspiration is certainly one of my problems so it was nice to have a recipe to work to that was simple and easy to follow.
What I really loved about making this was the ease! .. yep I am a kind of comfort and ease kind of gal, with simple instructions and quality alternatives to the standard crumble topping It really only took a few minutes.
Did I like it? … the crumble topping was delicious but the plantain was a little stodgy, not unpleasant, just not my cup of tea. I would love to try this again with a different filling maybe something with mango in? .. if you would like to try the Plantain Crumble Recipe you can find it HERE
But it’s not the end there .. I have still to make some homemade muesli! After challenging myself a few weeks ago to make an effort and to make time for breakfast this really could not have come at a better time!
Its been really refreshing to find somewhere that has made me want to tackle more cooking or baking .. it’s also nice to find alternative recipes that use different ingredients that spark some imagination.
Thanks Greenwhich Pantry for sharing your magic with me!
