We revolve around food at Rooted

Our well equipped kitchen allows us to cater events, as well as run our weekly activities, allowing our community members the opportunity to develop personal skills in a relaxed environment, where we can all find some space to grow.

Kitchen

We revolve around food at Rooted, we always try and get a meal involved into the day somehow.  We concentrate on the food we all eat at Rooted being locally sourced, healthy and preferably including something we have grown ourselves.

Paul is our qualified maestro in the kitchen and together, especially in the early part of the year, we can plan for the types of food we think we can use the most.  Some of Paul’s soups from the past years have been lauded across the city, but his recent “Curried Pumkin” from our Brew Monday event made it onto local BBC Radio!

Wood Fired Pizza Oven

On site, one of the containers houses a wood fired oven.  If we host an event, then we are definitely lighting the fire, and the pizza is always very good.  There are plenty of photo’s of the food we have served up over the years, but no picture can ever portray that feeling you get when they bring over your Rooted in Hull pizza, in mid April when it’s still a bit cold outside, and you take your first bite into that hot melting cheese and crispy fresh baked bread, it reminds you that you’re still alive!

We are looking into baking bread and would like to involve the community, we have the equipment, right here in the heart of Hull and we are interested in hearing from anybody who may wish to offer their help with a “Bake for the Community” type activity
