Japanese woodblock prints by Gardner and now Japanese culinary traditions on Sunday the 13th at 6.30. This Month Cookie is turning Japanese.
Sasaki will be preparing a 3 course tasting menu using the best of Scottish fish and other ingredients. He will be able to tell you about each dish and give you a better introduction into the art and tradition of Japanese Food. Of course Japanese food is not all about raw fish, Sushi and Udon Noddles.
It has always focused on the best ingredients prepare with particular beauty and seasonality (shun). Just words we want to hear at Cookie.
Both Kanto and Kansai regions which are defined by strong and delicate flavours.
You will be able to get an introduction to all this and more at Cookie on Sunday.
Many years ago I was designing a new cinema and entertainment centre in Pescara, Italy. I was commissioned to come up with ideas for a food operator. My idea was for a restaurant themed around conveyor belt food produced by the best chefs in the area. In Pescara they have all that Adriatic fish, mini kebabs with lamb and more. Italy being that magnificent conservative culinary culture was not quite ready for Japan, but we took the idea of conveyor belt Sushi and put on Abruzzese classics as mini dishes.
DJ chefs as an idea was born there and at Cookie finally we have the chance to try it out in Scotland.
We will be bring you a series of professional chefs who will DJ at Cookie with their food and culinary ideas. It will give established and less well known chef alike the chance to show case their talents.
The first in the series is Makoto on Sunday the 13th. Scottish ingredients meet Japanese technique.
Makoto has been in Scotland for sometime. He has is a man of many talents, from journalism to translation, acting as a press agent for Nakamura while at Celtic. He has also been cooking and teaching Japanese culinary arts for private and larger groups at all levels.
If you like Japanese food you will get a chance to eat traditional Japanese food of the highest quality finally on the Southside. What better way to entertain to eat and entertain your friends on a Sunday evening?
3 Cooks, 3 Main courses and 3 Puddings with the public as judge. The next is on the 30th of Jan.
We are always looking for would be Chefs so if you fancy cooking up a storm contact us on email@example.com
The idea is to have some fun through food and get people discussing what they eat. Competitors prepare a main course and a pudding. Our professional chefs will source ingredients and assist with preparation and serving, they will also discuss with you the pros and cons of any culinary idea and give you professional hints and tips along the way. If you are interested or know anyone who might be it would be great to hear from you.
Thanks to everyone who has helped make Cookie become….”More than just a café”

Cookie..”On Glasgow’s Southside has been shaking up the local eating scene all year with good food, unusual events, a few provocative stunts and huge amounts of energy”
It is a learning curve but we are going to keep going and will revisit some of our ideas from 2010 to make them even better.

Cookie’s Menu frees up, as things come into season.
Our menu has changed to bring in some fresh ideas. We have restructured the menu to give a clearer definition between starters and main courses. A variety of delicious starters or light lunch ideas are given room as well as interesting seasonal salads .
Here are a few of this weeks specials: Grilled duck liver with Rhubarb Chutney and Camomile smoked salmon. Elder-flower sorbet and Rhubarb brulée.
Our off sales will see a few new names next week
Brachetto d’acqui appears for the summer. This is lovely red, bubbly, strawberry wine. Fruity red fizzy low on alcohol. “Must be nuts….a fruity low on alchohol wine in Glasgow?” Someone said to me… Cookie. It is perfect way to start the evening. “This is perhaps the most delicious, charming wine made today that few people know about.
The Gruner Veltiner is now on its way from Mr. Schmid in Austria. So spritzer your evenings with this fantastic mineral melon and lemon wine and pretend you are looking down from the Viennese hills at the Danube.
“while savvy wine lovers have been in the know on Grüner Veltliner for a while now word is also starting to reach those that like wine but don’t necessarily spend all their free time geeking out about it.”
