Alexandra, or Alex as we know her, is our wonderful new cook at the Folk House Café.  You may have noticed a slightly Greek slant to some of the dishes coming from our kitchen, and this is because Alex is half Greek, the other half being Russian.  The quality and taste of her food speaks for itself, and while she is a relative novice in commercial cooking being a keen bean she has taken to café service like a duck to water.

Alex also does popup dinners, previously all in London.  Pop ups are everywhere these days but Alex's are served with a side of story telling and interactive fun.

We are really excited to announce the first Karamouza food & storytelling event in Bristol, which will take place on Saturday 4th November at 19:00 at our sister place, Spike Island Café. 

Our theme will be “Grape, Wine and Dionysus” (the ancient Greek god of the grape harvest, winemaking, festivities, and theatre).

We will explore the grape and wine as culinary ingredients, while our storyteller takes us on a colourful journey around the vine and wine traditions in ancient Greece, and the exciting and adventurous mythology of Dionysus.

Expect to taste Graviera (a unique Greek cheese), petimezi (grape must), and moustokouloura (must cookies) amongst other Greek delicacies.

Greek organic Tsantali wine (white Assyrtiko and red Cabernet Sauvignon) as well as other drinks will be available to buy separately at the bar (this is NOT a BYO event).

Vegetarian and vegan options are available but please contact us to provide any dietary requirements before booking.

To book your place please visit THIS LINK - you can pay before or on the day.
