Sample Menus

Below is a selection of menu ideas. Please remember that all menus are created via consultation with the customer so if you don’t see what you are looking for here then you only have to ask! I will create dishes to request where possible or you can mix and match ideas from the menus below if you like.

I will of course cater for any specific dietary requirements that you or your guests may have.

Modern British Originals - dishes that were inspired by great local produce.

  1. Curried parsnip soup with onion bhaji and coriander oil (v)

  3. Sherry vinegar macerated strawberries, black pepper shortbread, basil Chantilly cream.

French Favourites - some truly classic and comforting dishes.

  1. Moules Mariniere

Tastes of Thailand – inspired by my travels and one of my favourite cuisines.

  1. Tom Yum Soup with dumplings
  2. Thai Green Curry (chicken or Vegetable), minced pork with holy basil and chilli, pak choi in oyster sauce, jasmine rice
  3. Grilled pineapple with mint sugar + vanilla ice cream

Italian – my versions of some well known classic flavours.

  1. Antipasta – selection of italian cured meats, cheeses and grilled vegetables.
  2. Ragu – My take on the classic ragu from Bologna. A slow cooked meat sauce made with pork shoulder and served with Tagliatelle. Essentially this is what Spaghetti Bolognese should be!
