Anyway this blog isn't all about me, it's about food I've eaten, so...
At the end of June some fellow PPK friends and I met up at InSpiral Lounge in Camden to talk shit and eat food, this is something we do a lot.
I'd been there before but only for Ice Cream and I'd wanted to try their lasagna for ages...
... I definitely wasn't disappointed. For one it was huge, I could hardly even make a dent in my side dishes, and two, it was delicious. The topping was a really creamy bechamel sauce and it was filled with corn pasta, loads of sauce and Mediterranean vegetables.
I love lasagna but I'm always too overwhelmed by the many different parts of a lasagna recipe to ever attempt to make my own. Until today that is, this picture made me crave lasagna so much that I'm making the Veganomicon spinach lasagna for dinner. I've already made the tofu ricotta & the pine nut cream, all I need to do now is make the marinara sauce, steam the spinach and throw the whole thing together...I can't believe I've been scared of making lasagna for so long, it really isn't as complicated as it may seem!
InSpiral Lounge make amazing desserts, I bake a lot of cake which means I'm a bit fussy but I genuinely think this chocolate mousse cake is one of the best thing's I've ever eaten. I'll definitely be trying to recreate it at home as soon as I have the time.
The cake was perfectly soft & moist and the mousse was light and fluffy - yum! I also couldn't resist having a scoop of 'the best ice cream ever' as I refer to it, on the side. This mint choc chip ice cream is the creamiest most delicious thing ever, it's raw, soy free, cashew based, agave sweetened and amazing.
If you get the chance to head to Camden definitely make time for InSpiral Lounge, it's well worth the visit.
My last few post's have been very London based so next time I'll be back in Brighton posting about Terre a Terre's great grower's menu.
