26 Grains is all about bringing you delicious wholesome grain based dishes.
Hygge is a fundamental concept in Scandinavia with no direct English translation implying the notions of "coziness" or relaxing with friends and loved ones. We find our inspiration at 26 Grains from Scandinavian cooking traditions and spices. Our menu features a selection of healthy dishes based on grains, spices, and fresh ingredients.
Start with wholesome grains such as oats, quinoa, buckwheat, barley, millet, amaranth, spelt, flaxseed and rye cooked through a variety of milks - nut milk, coconut milk - or water or juices.
Add traditional Nordic spices such as cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and star anise. To keep our porridge deliciously healthy, we use only all-natural and unrefined combinations of honey, maple syrup, fresh fruit, and coconut to add a fresh touch of sweetness.
Finish with a variety of natural toppings such as nuts, fresh fruits, and house-made compotes and granolas.
At 26 Grains we source the best of the best foods from the areas where they grow best.
Grains are best suited to wet, muggy climates, as we often find here in the UK and Europe, and this is where the large proportion of our grains come from. Some of our more exotic grains, such as Quinoa, come from South American and Asia. Our flaked grains are all hand rolled in our kitchen, to ensure they haven't been tampered with, extruded or over processed.
Our dried fruits and nuts are again sourced from the areas where they are best produced e.g. Turkish Dates = the bomb.
Fresh fruits and vegetables are better and more delicious the less they've had to travel. This is why 26 Grains sources as much of it's fresh fruit and veg from local producers. Each season will bring with it it's own range of fresh produce and 26 Grains dishes will vary depending on the seasons' treats.
We use a delicious selection of cheeeeessseeeesss from all over Europe.
