Once again, the coffee dinner is upon us and this time the theme is "North Africa, the home of Coffee".
Tina and Parma from Viva Victoria restaurant have invited us to come and partake of a of a specially prepared menu of dishes drawn from the spiritual home of Coffee, North Africa.

For those that are unaware, Coffee is believed to have originated in Ethiopia when Sheppards noticed that their goats became very frisky after eating the fruit of a small bush high in the mountains and so tried the berries themselves and discovered the wonders of caffeine. Wanting to make some money from these wonder berries but not lose control, the sheppards in a effort to prevent others from growing the plants, roasted the berries before selling and so coffee was born and was traded widely across North Africa .
Tina has drawn inspiration from this to prepare our menu:
