Le Potager de Charlotte serves seasonal and local produce in innovative ways. One of their most creative starters is the Rice and Chickpea Pancake, complemented by espelette pepper and roasted squash seed. There is also a starter version of the pancake, topped with fresh chives and cashew cream – an ingenious vegan use of cashew nuts to create a dairy-free alternative to cream. The traditional sliced egg is replaced with sliced avocado in another dish, the smooth fruit layered with a delicious helping of hummus and the tang of turmeric. The design is similar to another of their popular starters, Roasted Carrot with Cremona mustard, cumin, and paprika. Come for breakfast, lunch or dinner and be amazed!
