Roast for Ramadan
With Ramadan approaching we understand the hunger and the cravings that come with breaking your fast. You want something delicious, filling and nutritious. So what better dish than a Sunday Roast?
How cruel would it be to restrict this mother of meals to just a Sunday Brunch? So here we are, Guanabana is going to Roast for Ramadan.
But not any ordinary roast. We give it our twist with jerk gravy, coal roasted jerk chicken or jerked roast rump beef. The usual accompaniments include roast potatoes, roasted veg, Yorkshire pudding and fried plantain. A meal to fill your belly and your soul!
With that said in the spirit of Ramadan we will be donating £1 for every "Ramadan Roast " we sell to a great cause, " Rumi’s Kitchen."
Rumi's Kitchen began in 2012, as a soup kitchen to address the increase in poverty in the Cricklewood area. The initiative has since evolved and became a community kitchen for all to tackle local issues.
Their guests range from rough sleepers and low-income families to a surprising number of individuals who are socially isolated and simply come for a chat. In 2017, they opened another kitchen service in the Harlesden area in response guest feedback at having no access to a hot meal on Saturdays.
At Rumi's Kitchen, guests are treated to a dining experience with meals served on real plates, with proper cutlery and glasses, an experience that we can easily take for granted. In July 2018, Rumi's Kitchen will be operating from their new community centre "Rumi's Cave" in Queens Park where they can offer three meals a day, as well as other support services.
Rumi's Kitchen owes its success and longevity to their many volunteers which means every £1 donated from the Ramadan Roast will go directly to one meal for a guest! If you would like to read their full story or would like to volunteer, please visit rumis.org. Thank you and Ramadan Mubarak!
