Ethiopian Meal - Tufnel Park

Lalibela restaraunt at Tufnell Park is an Ethiopian restaurant. It should be particularly interesting to us because the main course is served on a sour flat bread which is fermented for three days.

The restaurant has agreed to provide us a brief demonstration and explanation about how it is done and can provide starters for people. All the ingredients are available in a store a couple doors down.

Can't guarantee that everything at the meal is WAPF approved, not sure whether the meat is grass fed, but I think people will enjoy the atmosphere and this will provide great insight into how sour tastes and fermentation of grain incorporate into African cuisine. http://www.timeout.com/london/restaurants/venue/2%3A1133/lalibela

    Thanks to Phil for organising a fun event with tasty and new (to me) food which I enjoyed in the company of a great group of very nice and interesting people.

    I live round the corner from the restaurant, but had no idea that the shop near the restaurant selling Ethopian staples also does all their injera (fermented grain kind of pancake), with many barrels of fermenting grain at different stages of 'growth'. We had a lesson in how to cook them (but in reality you need a very experienced person to avoid wastage of 30% if not the right thickness). The meal was excellent, and the company very friendly (of course) with plenty of discussion about food, and different national cuisines. We shared one plate between four, and the two women outlasted the two men by about ten minutes! Even then we could not finish the plate! Good food and excellent value. It was also to get an update on the conference in March from the horses mouth (Phil). Can't wait!

    Such a shame i could'nt make this meet up, i was really looking forward to it, but the Northen line was part closed so it made my journey much more difficult. If you do this meet up again to Lalibela i would be very interested again, it sounded right up my street. Hope you all had a great evening

    Actually, the sour bread is more like a pancake!
