Week beginning January 2nd - Welcome back - Rabbit Soup and Pickled Ramsons

Welcome back, Happy New Year and thank you for being with us once again. We hope you had a good break if you were able to, we certainly did. Very nice thank you. Now, back to business, it's going to be a busy year.

This week we are using pickled Ramsons in our sharon fruit salad which has been made by fermenting the ramsons in salted liquid for several months. Ramsons or wild garlic as it is more commonly known, is a leafy edible stem plant. As the plant matures the stems become thicker and garlic flavours become more pungent and quite literally sent the air where they grow.

Also back on the menu this week is Rabbit soup. I know most people may be unsure at the idea of eating one of Mrs Potter's fury little friends, but the truth is rabbits are delicious and just as beneficial as any other form of protein! You would also be doing the environment and farmers a massive favour by consuming rabbit over a chicken. Trust us, we're chefs....
