We try and use local ingredients where possible, our philosophy is using produce that reflects the season. Our cuisine English with a Mediterranean accent.
Summer Menu Notes:
Into September and Mussels are large and plumptious from Foweys’ West Country deep water mussel beds. Local lobster dropping to more sensible prices so will be offering them as we get them. Stunning large seabass (5-8 KG) this past week, super fresh. Delicious steamed in a white wine and butter broth and served on chopped local seaweed tossed Charlotte potatoes and accompanied with a smooth Exmouth surf clam chowder.
Looking forward to some big cod starting to run up the Bristol channel in October and UK razor clams coming into season towards the end of the month.
I am trialing some organic long horn beef from a farm in Brompton Ralph. Haven’t cooked it yet but it looks amazing (letting it breathe for a couple of days in my meat fridge). Also cooked suckling pig for a private party on Saturday cooked and served with honeyed root veggies, dauphinoise and a cider reduction.
Great time of year for vegetables and fruit. Terrific Dunster pears are tantalisingly close to being ripe. I love to cook them “Au tatin” in a pan with butter and sugar then top with puff pastry and bake. Super with Somerset clotted cream!
