    Where to eat in Brighton : I visited Kindling, a new restaurant in Brighton based on zero waste, local produce & healthy eating. Check out this taster menu! The environment is a biophilic design dream. Scandi wood cabin chic, plants a plenty, and the menu calls out to eat natural and eat local.  Your eyes are drawn from the beautiful wooden tables and chairs upwards along the plants, hanging like a curtain that continue towards the high ceilings. It's like industrial meets plant filled log cabin, it's just lush. It's a stone's throw from Brighton beach and the shops in the Lanes, so the perfect spot.  The all British taster menu we were treated to included UK grown tomatoes, local wasabi, venison and beef from the Knepp estate re-wilding project (and via the gun shop across the road!), and of course lots of wild garlic. Yes, the wild garlic season is here! (if you're after a foraging bag, check this best seller out). Beef is also sourced from Herstmonceux and Ditchling, while lamb comes from Saddlescomb Farm, all in the Sussex area.
