Gluten free launch at Tarana24-11-2016
In response to growing customer demand, the award-winning Tarana Indian restaurant in Rainham, Kent is to launch a new gluten-free menu.
Having been open for just over a year, with the focus on fine Indian dining, with authentic regional dishes using prime ingredients, Tarana was named ‘Newcomer of the Year’ at the Asian Curry Awards in October.
“There is a distinct trend away from typical curry-house fair, towards more delicate flavours, with discerning customers prepared to pay the extra it costs to produce cooking of this quality, said restaurant owner Raj Abdin, who added, “More and more customers are asking for gluten free dishes – so I’ve had my chefs develop recipes to meet this demand.”
The menu includes a Seafood Safari - a fusion of scallops, squid, and king prawns cooked with mustard seeds and curry leaves in a bhuna sauce and Hiran Ki Boti - medallions of local venison drizzled with the chef’s potli masala, gentry pan-seared and served on a bed of sautéed potatoes with red apple and beetroot chutney.
Tarana was one of the first restaurants in the country to stock the new gluten free Goa Premium Beer imported from Indian.
The new dishes will be revealed at an exclusive media and VIP lunch being held on Tuesday 29th November to celebrate the Asian Curry Award. During the lunch Pat Chapman, founder and editor of the Good Curry Guide, will present the restaurant with a Certificate of Excellence Award for 2017.
Tarana has also been nominated for one of Produced in Kent’s most prestigious Taste of Kent Awards, in the ‘Best Restaurant’ category. Winners will be unveiled in March next year.
In January, Tarana will also be hosting a charity dinner with proceeds being donated to Dind Your Feet charity’s ‘Curry For Change’ campaign and a local good cause. Restaurant regulars will be asked to nominate a favourite local charity.

At a Stroke16-11-2016
Scientists have dealt a new blow to food fascists who have already been proven wrong on on their arbitary ‘5 a day' matra, red meat, alcohol units and butter/beef dripping versus vegetable oil ascertions.
A study by boffins at the EpidStat Institue in Michegan, tracking 30,000 people over 30 years, have found that regular egg eaters (whether boiled, scrambled, poached or fried), were 12% less likelyn to suffer a stroke, than non regular egg eaters.
Despire theories espoused by vegans from the 1970s, that eggs are unhealthy, eggs are a rich source of anti oxidents and vitamins.
There has been a outbreak of faux outrage at a Kent pub’s decision to serve reindeer in the run up to Christmas.
The Jolly Sailor in Canterbury, has added meatballs made from reindeer on its menu, kicking up a 'media storm'.
Mother-of-two Jane Symons, 33, who lives in Canterbury, said: “Everyone I’ve spoken to thinks this is terrible, specially just before Christmas. Why can’t the pub just stick to ordinary meatballs?”
Others appreciated the humour. “Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen & Eunuch!” posted @Green&Pleasant on social media.
Vegan Pop Up11-11-2016
Following a popular vegan pop up event held over the summer, the Empire Room restaurant at Ramsgate’s Royal Harbour Hotel, is to host a vegan weekend on the 6th and 7th January. Guest vegan chefs and food bloggers Alexandra and Caroline Cadell will prepare the meat free (and largely fat free) feasts. Apart from being renowned for their vegan cookery, the pair are top food bloggers and founded ‘Food For Life - Italy’.
The evenings begin at 6:30pm with a welcoming glass of prosecco. The sisters will then give a short introduction to veganism and will mix with diners during the meal, answering questions and giving cooking tips.
For starters, there is a choice of Bruschetta which offers intense Italian flavours with crispy ciabatta or a traditional Italian Ribollita, a hearty Tuscan warming soup perfect for cold January evenings. The mains are a Potato and Chick Pea Chaat, combining vibrant Indian ingredients and hot and sour spices; a Chilli Sans Carne – a fat-free perennial favourite; or a pasta dish featuring smoked aubergine with a Mediterranean sauce. The evening concludes with a winter Fruit Crumble or Torta Zucchini. The three course meal costs £20.
“Our initial vegan pop up proved so popular, we have decided to revisit the format while our regular chef, Craig Mather, takes a well earned rest after what promises to be a busy festive period,” said hotel owner James, who added, “A number of our regular omnivorous customers also mentioned undertaking a meat-free detox regime in January – so this is an ideal opportunity to repeat the offering.”
