Lunch @ Rochelle Canteen, East London

I'm a huge fan of the vegetarian dishes at St John Bread Wine (think corn, or tomatoes or tomatoes with lovage or beetroot soup or artichoke - one ingredient with a herb, oil or lemon - exactly the way I like vegetables) and so I have been keen to sample Rochelle Canteen for a while

Great location and fantastic idea - of course they were booked out but after some pouting and pleading we were seated...

Only a quick lunch we sampled:

- Beetroot, Red Cabbage & Crème Fraiche
- Cauliflower, Leeks & Butterbeans
- Smoked Salmon & Cucumber

The beetroot was the highlight - absolutely outstanding, thinly shaved and quite crunchy it worked beautifully with the cabbage

Think the cauliflower, leeks and butterbeans had too much flavour and maybe too many textures

Cucumber was good but while looking at the smoked salmon all i could think about was the movie about russ & daughters i saw on the heathrow express recently,... and that made me crave the fancy delancey...

love the idea and it's a beautiful kitchen, highly recommended and will definitely go back
