Purple pud helps charity
Norwich restaurant The Last Wine Bar has come up with a special edition of one of its signature dishes to support the Purple Picnic fundraising campaign by Norfolk charity Nelson’s Journey.
Iain McCarten, head chef, has created a purple cheesecake – and The Last will donate £1 to Nelson’s Journey for each one sold in the lead-up to the Purple Picnic itself.
The special edition cheesecake’s purple colour comes from an abundance of black cherries, giving the pudding a summer taste and a deep purple hue. Nelson’s Journey’s Purple Picnic takes place from July 8 to 14 and the cheescake will be on sale until July 14.
