The Daisy Green Collection (which includes Timmy Green and the floating restaurant, Darcie & May), has launched an exciting limited-time collaboration with plant-based chef Kirk Haworth of Plates, adding five beautiful plant-based dishes to its already hugely popular flexible eating menu, available exclusively at their Scarlett Green site in Soho.
Sitting alongside Scarlett’s vegan sharing board (which includes a fire-roasted aubergine, smoky BBQ tofu steak, crispy wild rice salad and a vegan bolognese stuffed pepper), the new dishes promise to “push the boundaries of plant-based cuisine, bringing Michelin-star quality and flavour to the buzzing Soho neighbourhood”.
A special collaboration between Plates’ Kirk Haworth (formerly of The French Laundry, Restaurant Sat Bains and Quay in Sydney) and Daisy Green’s Prue Freeman, the new menu pays homage to Australia’s unique food history with a plant-based take on wholesome, high-quality dishes. Inspired by Kirk’s time spent living, working and travelling around the country, the new additions include tomato and strawberry tartare, chilled elderflower, mint & basil; BBQ vegetable and kimchi taco with whipped avocado, aubergine, slow-baked carrot & house pickles; herbaceous pancake, pickled beetroot, wild rocket & chickpea aioli (below) and fragrant butternut and carrot curry, with black rice, toasted broccolini & kaffir lime.
To start, we tried the bright pink beetroot and cumin falafel with rare grains, avocado, pomegranate & toasted seeds alongside tuna tataki from the main menu before trying one of the new sides – Korean hot potato – a vegan take on the decadent dauphinoise, with 15 layers of crispy potato gratin, spicy pepper sauce, pickled kohlrabi and crispy onions.
So whether you’re a fully signed up member of the vegan society or just enjoy incorporating more plant-based meals into your diet, we like the way the Plates dishes slip effortlessly alongside the main Scarlett Green menu, so that you can pick and choose the dishes for you.
The Daisy Green Collection x Plates menu will be served at Scarlett Green in Soho, from Thursday 25th July.
