I stumbled upon ‘Make Friends With Food’ www.apresfood.com on my way to work. This is a ‘cosy house’ style venue in an old narrow building that sits snugly between two modern buildings on St. Johns St Clerkenwell. The restaurant is run by a lovely Italian gentleman and Catherine who is a professional nutritionist. I decided to book a table for Friday night and knew immediately this was something I was going to enjoy. As soon as we arrived we were given a warm welcome and a table at the front of the home-style dining area. For starters, we shared two types of Bruschetta one with Cherry tomato and red onion and another with avocado and pesto, this was accompanied by a lovely biodynamic bottle of Cremant. For the main course, I had vegetarian Thai curry and rice, which was delicious and aromatic.
The venue also has a lovely little outside restroom area out the back, much like I have experienced in Spain, everything is done with a special touch and is immaculate.
For dessert, I went with the lemon tart which was made with coconut sugar, an alternative to refined sugar which has a nicer taste and not so sweet. The tart was delicious as was the whole meal and quite noticeably at the end, I did not have the usual bloated feeling you sometimes get when you finish a meal, I felt light and energised.
As well as evening meals Apres Food company is a cafe in the daytime serving breakfast and lunch. The daytime menu includes carefully concocted juices, breakfast cookies and cereals. During lunchtime, tarts, rolls, fritters and salad are served which provide maximum nutritional benefits to the body.
Everything is made with love at Apres Food Company, I can’t wait to return to this wonderful venue.
