Planning to stay with us in Birmingham? We've launched an initiative called Cooking Cool, which provides all that you need to create delicious two-course meals in the privacy of your apartment. Enjoy the stunning views and relax!
With Cooking Cool you can make a delicious meal without the effort of planning or shopping for ingredients. We'll ensure that you have on hand seasonal recipes, locally sourced ingredients and all the equipment required.
We've just launched a new menu. For the main course you can choose between pan-fried sea bass with crème fraiche, kohlrabi, radish & fennel 'slaw, roast beets, crispy baby jersey potatoes or barley risotto, caraway and feta. Dessert is chocolate soil, honey comb, whipped cream, blackberries, popping candy and chocolate sauce.
All the ingredients and recipes for the Cooking Cool meal plus recipes cost just £25 (serves two) and can be ordered in advance only when you book your apartment.
Cooking Cool is the result of a new partnership between chef Alex Claridge and Staying Cool serviced apartments. Alex, ex-The Warehouse Café and founder of Edible Brum magazine, is Creative Director of Urban Coffee.
