Autumn - Winter Menu

Autumn - Winter menu inspiration: Spiced Roast Duck, Hay Baked Celeriac, Pickled Blackberries, Port Sauce & Duck Liver Toastie Recipe 

The new season is well underway and Autumn/Winter menus can be a challenge at the best of times, even more so when many customers are still cautious about going out post-pandemic, and concerned about rising prices. So getting people back into the dining-out habit throughout November is important, as it helps them to start thinking about the festive season, and get-togethers with family, friends, and colleagues. A memorable menu now can be a great way to start filling up the bookings diary.

We’ve been working on some new recipes which feature seasonal ingredients, as well as flavours to spice up autumn-winter menus and specials boards. Here’s the first of our video recipe dishes utilising our seasonal fresh produce with delicious duck from our butcher friends Campbell Brothers.

Allergens & Natasha's Law

Natasha's Law...   

more formally known as 'prepacked for direct sale (PPDS) requirements', is due to be implemented as of Friday, 1st October 2021.

The technical guidance for prepacked for direct sale (PPDS) foods was issued in the latest update of the Food Standards Agency’s (FSA) food allergen labelling and information requirements - technical guidance in June 2020.

These changes will require food businesses to label PPDS food with a full list of ingredients containing emphasised allergens within, bringing the provision of allergen information in line with labelling for prepacked food.

We have put together a guide to help make sense of allergens and the requirements of the new legislation. View it here

International Beer Week

Top tips for International Beer Week  

 
Of all the days, this has to be one of the most popular?! International Beer Day is Friday 6th August! To help celebrate we asked our beer sommelier friend John Porter for some top tips on cooking with beer and beer and food pairing. 
 
• Beer has complex flavours, so can be more challenging to cook with than wine or cider.
 
• Be careful when reducing beer into a sauce, the hops can give a metallic flavour.
 
• Better to like-for-like replace water in recipes with beer, such as in batters, breads, puddings & stews; or to marinate meat, fish and vegetables in beer before cooking.
 
• And our favourite tip… Taste frequently! Beer’s complex flavours can take the dish in interesting and unexpected directions!
 
 
The principles of beer and food matching come under 'The Three Cs':
 
Complement – match similar flavours, e.g. lemon sole with a citrusy lager
Contrast –  balance distinctive flavours, e.g. tangy cheddar with a rich malty ale  
Compete – match similar strengths of flavour; e.g. chocolate dessert with dark porter  
 
 
When it comes to tasting beer (the best bit!) - the four stages to consider are: 
 
• Clarity – some beer styles are unfiltered of hazy, but in most cases a beer, even if it’s dark, should be clear.
 
• Aroma – does the beer entice you in with interesting aromas? 
 
• Taste – is the beer well-balanced between sweet and bitter flavour notes?  
 
• Aftertaste – does the beer leave your palate refreshed and ready for the next sip?
