Couch potato is a term used to refer to someone who spends a lot of time on the couch, perhaps watching television or immersed in the virtual world. One of the dishes we feature on the menu of our Deli is a Multigrain Canape- the couch potato of the food world!
Canape comes from the French word for Sofa, perhaps some French chef felt that the garnish that sits on top of the bread is like a person couched on top of a sofa!
We have taken some inspiration from the couch potato and given it a zing. Our canape is made from an organic nine-grain slow baked sofa, Er! Bread, made of Yellow Sorghum, Red Sorghum, Red Rice, Buckwheat, Yellow Pea, Amaranth, Pearl Millet, Finger Millet. The garnish is made from sprouted pulses: Cowpea, Bengal gram, Green gram, Black pea and Yellow pea and flavoured with a date-raisin spread.
Just one bite- and the couch potato looks very interesting.
