Week beginning March 30th - Great Titchfield Street and Eastcastle Street Menus

Spring has finally arrived after what feels like an endless winter. I must admit winter is great until New Years, post celebration is a depressing drag, which last for 3 months. Being from the southern hemisphere makes winter even worse. Social media is a constant reminder of sunny beaches and tan lines, but after 7 years I am slowly becoming climatized. Thankfully daylight savings has started and the first of the 2015’s long weekends are here.

This week’s menu is Easter inspired starting with our hot-cross buns. We will be including the addition of pears to our dough and serving them toasted with the option of butter. I recommend a spreading of our famous carrot and lemon marmalade.

We’ll also be serving the Easter Bunny’s favourite gluten-free cake, a carrot based sponge topped with a strawberry disguised as a carrot. You’ll have to come in and see for yourself or just keep an eye on our twitter feed to get a better understanding.

All three of our salads are based on classic Easter traditions with slightly updated flavour pairings and ingredients. We have a salad with Italian speck, poached carrots, toasted fennel seeds and tiny-mini garlic bread rolls that resemble cute little bunnies. There will be new season asparagus with hollandaise made with buckthorn berries, high in vitamin C, antioxidants and amino acid. Lastly the first of new mids, lightly boiled sweetness coated in creamed spinach and garnished with Parmesan flakes.

At Great Titchfield street this week, Khan has researched what is in season from our suppliers and taken influence form her families cooking back in Burma with a grilled prawn and Vietnamese noodle salad which is lovely and fresh in the hope the weather may go the same way. She is also using one of our favourites wild watercress tops with salmon, dill and capers in a quiche top go with the salads.

Please enjoy both our menus this week, as we will enjoy bringing them to you.
