My first ever pop up was last weekend. It was held at flatbread haven, Flatplanet, just off Oxford Circus. It was a Sunday lunch themed three-course menu, hosted in collaboration with Teapigs. Three-courses, followed by truffles and tea, I could not describe the event in any other way than quaint and oh so very British. To remain in tune with the venue I wanted to incorporate their famous flatbreads into my menu, so I used them as a vehicle for my roasted beetroot puree, rosemary goat curd and salted almond starter.

One of my favorite things to do with beetroot is roasting and pureeing. Not only because I am obsessed with my new blender, but because it is delicious and really useful. If you ever find yourself ransacking the fridge at 9pm at night, when you get in from work or in need of a sandwich filler, the beetroot puree can deliver on both counts. Whack it onto your grilled cheese, pour it on your salad, dip your crisps into it, or serve it as a fun starter... the choice is yours. Just remember to wash your hands after you make it, or you too will have a sofa that looks like Patrick Bateman came to visit.

I served the starter on a spelt flatbread, with mixed leaves, rosemary goat curd and Gran Luchito smoked chilli honey toasted seeds.
