  • The Ethicurean

    Email:

    The Ethicurean is founded on a sense of place. This is the idea of having a connection with the native land, its history and the community who grow food locally upon it. Our family team seek to discover harmonious pairings between the ingredients that surround the walled garden. At the Ethicurean, we are proud of our food principles. Our fantastically supportive customer base who visit all year round often concur heartily. Purveyors of entirely seasonal, local and ethical British produce, all meats are from free range livestock or wild. Our fish is responsibly sourced. We are also supporters of organic agriculture, fair trade and Rainforest Alliance. We produce natural apple juice from our unsprayed orchards. The Ethicurean strive to look for alternatives to all imported fresh produce and constantly look as close to our home for the best ingredients which are often foraged or shot a stone’s throw from our walls or grown within. Mark Cox is the gardener at Barley Wood. He is a one-man band with an incredible passion for Heritage and Heirloom vegetables. Our menu changes twice daily. Look online for an example menu.

  • Ruby Violet – Tufnell Park

    Email:

    We are based on the borders of Tufnell Park and Kentish Town, a little jewel in the heart of Fortess Road, from where we serve our delicious ice cream and sorbet. We take time to create our flavours, for example the toasted coconut is made by cracking then peeling the coconuts, grating, toasting then soaking in the milk and cream for 2 days, straining then churning. All the dairy ice cream is made in small batches, using seasonal fruit prepared daily on the premises. In the summer the mint, rhubarb, apples and honey are all sourced from within a few miles. Blackberries and damsons come from Julie’s home village of Flintham in Nottinghamshire. Julie decided right at the beginning to only use organic milk, free range eggs, British or fair trade sugar. We use no artificial preservatives and all our tubs are biodegradable and compostable, and we recycle our spoons. The ice creams all contain egg yolk. The sorbets contain no dairy. All the sorbets and ice creams may contain traces of nuts, as we use the same equipment and although it is cleaned thoroughly between each batch we cannot guarantee a completely nut free product. We’re always open to suggestions for new flavours and are very willing to experiment, so please contact us with any ideas. Ruby Violet also offers catering for special events and weddings and runs ice cream and so

    Our Kings Cross branch opened at the end of May 2016 in the Canal Quarter of the new development, situated in the Midland Goods shed next to Waitrose wine bar. Our Panama table with its curvy profile came from the bottom of the Panama canal, we subsequently redesigned the seating area to accommodate this rather spontaneous purchase.
