Where do you stand on the whole brown sauce vs tomato ketchup debate? For chef and finalist of Channel 4’s ‘The Taste’, Aphrodite Fingal-Rock Innes, neither ever really cut the mustard, which, happily for us, led her to develop her own perfect condiment for those hangover-curing butties we all occasionally succumb to.
Her homemade pomegranate ketçhup is not only the ultimate accompaniment to a bacon and egg sarnie, it also forms the basis of much of her Levantine-inspired cooking, which you can experience at her monthly supper clubs entitled
Her next event is a brunch feast this Saturday, featuring menemen eggs, a traditional Turkish dish of eggs cooked with tomatoes, peppers and onions. Other treats will include homemade spinach and potato borek, Eastern Mediterranean cheeses manouri and kefelotyri and a palate-refreshing cucumber, pomegranate and parsley salad.
Traditional breads such as sesame and sweet fennel will be served with hazelnut and date butter, honey and kaymak, which is similar to clotted cream, and a dazzling array of seasonal fruits and jams. The feasting ends with blackberry and lime-filled doughnuts with pistachio and double mint tea.
Hosted in an East London converted railway arch, Aphrodite’s Table is also the home of Aphrodite’s sauce bottling business so while you’re filling up on delicious Turkish breakfast delicacies, you can also stock up on a bottle of Pommy K to accompany your next sandwich of sin. Winning.
