Bluebird Café partners with UK’s No.1 children’s cookery author, Annabel Karmel, for exclusive family-friendly menu


Recently opened Bluebird Café, located in White City’s iconic Television Centre, has teamed up with the UK’s No.1 children’s cookery author, Annabel Karmel, for an exclusive menu collaboration around her new book Real Food Kids Will Love. Launching 27th June, the six-week residency will see a selection of dishes from the book (published 28th June) forming a nutritious and inspiring menu specifically designed for Bluebird Café’s family diners.

With a career spanning twenty-five years, London born mother of three, Annabel Karmel, has pioneered the way families all over the world feed their babies and children. Credited with starting a food revolution with her trusty recipes and methods, she has become the UK’s No.1 children’s cookery author, best-selling international author, and the mother of all feeding experts with over forty cookbooks. In 2006, Annabel received an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for her outstanding work in the field of child nutrition, and she has since become recognised as one of the UK’s leading female entrepreneurs.

A buzzing and family-friendly approach to dining sits at Bluebird’s core, with their fun-filled Kids Packs already proving to be a great success. The team is consequently thrilled to be welcoming Annabel through its new White City doors, where her signature dishes shall run alongside Executive Chef Simon Gregory’s modern European menu. Providing enticing and nutritionally balanced options guaranteed to keep toddlers and children at the table, a special kids menu will include the likes of Hidden veg Bolognese, Roast chicken, roast potatoes, squash and sage stuffing, and No-sugar chocolate orange energy balls. Not wanting mum and dad to miss out, a selection of adult and child friendly dishes will also feature on the a la carte, such as a dessert of Mini raspberry cheesecakes.

Bluebird Café

Sister to the celebrated Chelsea restaurant and café, Bluebird Café opened its doors at Television Centre White City, one of London’s hottest new developments, in April 2018. Opening out onto a piazza overlooked by the Television Centre’s famous circular core, Bluebird Café White City is at the heart of the £8 billion regeneration that has opened this iconic location to residents, diners and revellers for the first time in its history.

Taking the buzz and familiar charm of the café at the original Bluebird – a Chelsea landmark on the Kings Road for 20 years – this new sister brings a chic, all-day drinking and dining destination to West London. The first of Bluebird’s planned expansion in London and beyond, the 5000-square-foot space

incorporates a café, bar and spacious all-year-round terrace, with interiors by David d’Almada’s Sagrada. Bluebird Restaurants’ Executive Chef Simon Gregory has created a modern European menu which is served from 8.00am-11pm daily.
