Demo kitchen: Cool as a cucumber

Chef, writer and broadcaster Paula McIntyre is back in the demo kitchen on Friday 4th August, going crazy for cucumbers.

Northern Ireland director for Slow Food UK and Borough Market regular, Paula’s out to show how versatile the odd shaped fruits can be. Her menu will include:

Cucumber and mint gazpacho, pickled cucumber, apple and smoked almonds

Sole with butter and dill braised cucumber, cucumber emulsion

Chicken gyro with flatbread, charred spiced cucumber, feta

Miso roast duck breast, hot and sour cucumber, cucumber ribbon salad

For tips and suggestions on how to make the most of cucumber, come and join us on Friday 4th August in the Market Hall 12:30-2pm.

Like all our demonstration kitchens, it's a free event - expect fantastic tastings, and recipe cards so you can recreate the dishes with ease at home.
