Creamy stracciatella with anchovy and pickled zucchini, juicy soured cucumber on feta, baked custard dripping with caramel, a green dressing to make to again and again. Cut-above wine-bar food, from a city stalwart.

Embla is the city wine bar where Christian McCabe’s list and Dave Verheul’s menu combine to make a rare kind of magic, based on woodfire, fine wine and snacks and drinks aplenty. Their CARTILAGE recipe cards start out with some classic Embla snacks, veer to a cult dessert, then finish with a simple dressing set to become a staple.

  • Stracciatella with Zucchini, Anchovy & lemon
  • Soured Cucumbers, Feta, Dill
  • Crema Catalana
  • BONUS Wild Rocket & Hazelnut Dressing
  • Annotations from co-owner and chef Dave Verheul
