Cambridge Edition August 2020 - WEB



There are lots of local success stories from restaurants switching up their business models with mind- boggling speed during lockdown, but perhaps the most impressive case of all was Vanderlyle, which went from serving fine-dining tasting menus to doorstep- delivering family meals within what seemed like a matter of minutes. Vanderlyle To Go was born, serving seasonal, nourishing comfort food, such as veggie lasagne with freshly baked focaccia. Recently, the restaurant added picnic boxes to its menu, offering ready-to-eat dishes packed with exquisite local produce, to be enjoyed while relaxing alfresco. Picnics start at £15 per person and family meals at £20 per person. Book your slot via Tock.

BOTTLEPROOF COCKTAILS Rose Crescent nightspot La Raza has pivoted to cocktail deliveries during lockdown, partnering with sister company Bottleproof to serve up favourite tipples made with fresh juices, homemade syrups and premium spirits. “Given the current situation and the expected long wait until pubs and bars can get back to any kind of normality, we have decided, for a limited time, to sell our bottled cocktails via our bar, La Raza, direct to the public,” explains Charlie Anderson, owner of La Raza and Ta Bouche cocktail bars in Cambridge, and co-owner of Bottleproof Cocktails. “This represents an amazing opportunity to try one of our multi award-winning cocktails at home. At the same time, it provides our bars, La Raza and Ta Bouche, with a means of receiving some income. Diversification like this is essential to enable us to get through this uniquely challenging time.” The menu includes espresso martinis, daquiris, negronis and more – with prices starting at £4.10 a serve.

Cambridge has fallen in love with flammekueche – a pizza-like dish with a light, crispy dough served with crème fraiche and a variety of tasty toppings – since Amélie introduced it to the city from its base at The Grafton. During lockdown, the restaurant launched ‘Flam-kuche Flatpack’ kits, allowing fans to make their own with bases, crème fraiche, lardons, gruyère cheese and easy-to-follow instructions. The kits are priced at £16.95 and come with enough ingredients for two large flammmekueche. FLAM-KUCHE FLATPACK
