Adam Handling launches Bean & Wheat in Liverpool Street

26/06/2017 - 10:17
Adam Handling, owner of The Frog E1, has opened Bean & Wheat, a coffee shop and deli, at Liverpool Street, London.

Bean & Wheat uses only locally-sourced, artisanal ingredients and is open for breakfast and lunch to eat in or takeaway. Adam and the team at The Frog E1 say they have developed the menu “to reflect the combinations that customers have grown to expect at The Frog E1, but in a more casual setting, and with an eye to maintaining our ‘no waste’ philosophy.”

The company hopes eventually to eliminate all food wastage in all Frog restaurants and Bean & Wheat, by ensuring that nothing is thrown away needlessly. Any wastage that can’t be used by the kitchen is sent off-site to be made into compost, from which the Frog currently grows the majority of its own fruit, vegetables and herbs. The Frog’s Flagship restaurant, opening in Covent Garden this September, will also contribute its by-products to Bean & Wheat.

Adam Handling said: “I’m hugely excited about the opening of Bean & Wheat, I think there’s a real demand for innovative food to grab and go.  On the other hand, food wastage is an issue that’s increasingly important in our industry, and one that’s particularly close to my heart. Restaurants tend to waste so much food on a day-to-day basis, and we are trying to tackle this – in the next few years we hope to reach zero-waste status.”
