The Vegetable garden is being very productive again this year. We grow a wide variety of roots, greens, legumes ect. This year we have been experimenting with a new method of growing some baby roots in boxes and up off the ground, this seems to have worked perfectly and the kitchen is now being supplied with some nice baby vegetables.
With a glut of Cucumbers from the garden I was pressed to “come up with a method to get rid of them”, as the weather was quite warm I did try cucumber vichyssoise, but that did not prove to be very successful with the customers who indicated a preference for other things on the menu by a process of not ordering it. So in desperation I made this cucumber mousse, then had to come up with something to sell it hence the Warm Prawn and Tomato salad, that worked! now I am struggling to find enough cucumbers and had to take it off the menu because I ran out of prawns.
