Ever wondered how your go-to espresso bar makes their scones so fluffy or how to recreate the killer chicken shawarma as served in your fave indie cafe?
We’ve just launched the first Indy Cafe Cookbook which showcases stonking recipes from some of the UK and Ireland’s best speciality coffee shops. As publishers of the award winning Independent Coffee Guides series we’ve been table hopping across this caffeine rich region drinking the best coffee and scoffing incredible dishes for the last five years.
And now we’ve pulled together those banging brunches, colourful lunches, Insta-ready bakes and caffeine-infused cocktails to create the first speciality coffee-inspired recipe collection. It’s a cookbook like no other, a curated selection of signature dishes with coffee and music pairings from the likes of Atkinsons in Lancaster, Established in Belfast, Origin in Cornwall, Extract in Bristol and Cairngorm in Edinburgh – plus 35 more.
As the cafes have chosen a specific music track to perfectly pair with each dish, we’ve created a Spotify playlist which you can find here. With the food, music and vibes sorted, you’re all set to create a slice of cafe culture at home.
The book is available, priced £20, from www.indycoffee.guide, bookshops and featured coffee houses.
