Respond to Review of CLOSED: Demuths
by Claire Bear
Review: I've been going to Demuth's (and Rachel Demuth's Vegetarian cookery school) for many years, but infrequently as I don't live that close to Bath. It did go through a phase a few years ago when I felt it wasn't as good as when Rachel was the Chef, but at my last visit it really was back on top form. My husband and I were meeting a friend who was a bit late and so we ordered a side dish of saute new potatoes to share, which was huge and yummy. So when our friend arrived, we decided to share a sandwich and then share a pud. The sandwich we chose was lush wholegrain toasted bread on mixed leaves with some kind of delicious spicy hummus with preserved lemon oil (mental note to get some of that!) and roasted squash slices. Purrrrfect. Pudding was a choc mousse (nice and dark and not too sweet) with a pink peppercorn tuile (whatever that is but it tasted good!). I would highly recommend this place - staff are charming and it is pricey but portions are large so you can share! Also would recommend Rachel Demuth's fantastic cookery books - available from her website if you google her name.
