London’s first ‘caveman’ resto opens

The first restaurant focusing on food consumed during the Paleolithic era has opened in London’s Westbourne Grove.

Pure Taste champions the “cavemen” diet

The brainchild of head chef and nutritional therapist Holly Redman, Pure Taste centres around “The Caveman Diet” shunning dairy products, grains, legumes, processed oils and refined sugars in favour of protein-rich, high fibre dishes.

Going big on fish and meat, among the dishes on offer are oven-roasted fillet of Loch Duart salmon, orange and coriander cauliflower pilaf and pomegranate; pan-fried breast of wood pigeon, roasted baby beetroot, walnuts and baby watercress; and grass-fed rib-eye, salsa verde, sweet potato and seasonal salad.

Dishes will be served alongside biodynamic wines and gluten-free beers.

“Pure Taste combines a passion for healthy living with high quality dining that exhibits the benefits of paleo cooking,” said Redman.

“The restaurant offers a unique, healthy and delicious new facet to the London dining scene,” she added.

Originally a pop-up in Sussex, the permanent site in London, featuring artwork from Chilean-born artist Otto Schade, has been funded by Kickstarter.

During the Paleolithic period, humans grouped together in small societies and survived by gathering plants, fishing and hunting for wild animals.

Predating the Mesolithic period, the Paleolithic era is characterised by the use of stone, wood and bone tools.
