Looking for something to entertain the kids during those April showers? Why not try our ‘Do You Doodle?’ books which come in a variety of styles to suit young tastes. The springtime vibes might also inspire you to get growing with our plant pot herb sets, or light up your garden path with battery powered fairy mushrooms! For Easter we’ve stocked our shelves with bilingual cards, bunny and chick egg-cups from the popular Quail range, felt baskets to hold your Easter booty and vintage-inspired keepsake tins. And don’t forget Mother’s Day! We’re organising drop in workshop sessions for children who want to make something special for their Mam from 11am — 1pm on Saturday 2 April. Please contact the Shop for more details. Ginny, Shop Supervisor

I love spring! Last month I planted some veggies for the summer and I can’t wait to be eating them al fresco. On our menu at Chapter we’re slowly changing the more wintery fare for some lovely dishes incorporating what’s fresh and seasonal at the moment. I’m planning on adding one of my favourite warm weather dishes to the menu — escabeche is seared fish which is marinated in a lemon juice, fresh herb and chilli dressing and served hot or cold the next day. I love this with fresh green salad, sugar snap peas or tabouleh. Another cracking fish dish is our grilled mackerel with roasted mushrooms, peppers, onions and courgettes in homemade arrabiata sauce, topped with salsa verde and served with side salad. Bon appetit!

Spring has well and truly sprung, so why not accompany one of our new seasonal menu choices with a glass of refreshing fruit beer? Timmermans is one of only a handful of traditional lambic breweries on the outskirts of Brussels. Lambic beer is a spontaneously fermenting wheat beer to which no yeast is added and casks are left open overnight to collect natural micro-organisms. Fruit is then added for a second fermentation and to give the beer its distinctive taste and aroma. We stock cherry, raspberry and peach Timmermans in bottles and we now have strawberry Timmermans on draft, so treat yourself to something a bit different and celebrate the sunshine*!
