Nothing fancy, just a good old British BBQ!
Hot sun, a few tipples and meat! 😃
Two days ago it was my 30th birthday and I was lucky enough to visit Tom Kerridge’s 2 Mitchillin star restaurant, The Hand and Flowers in Marlow.
For the starter I opted for the Duck liver parfait with orange chutney and toasted brioche and Gav went for the Salt bake swede and haggis tart with crispy lamb, chantilly de cherve and wiltshire truffle.
The duck was without a doubt the bast starter I have ever had! It was amazingly creamy with such a delicate taste, I could have eaten it all night and left amazingly satisfied.
I enjoyed the Essex lamb bun with sweet breads and salsa verde and Gav went for the Half beer roasted chicken with caramelized cauliflower, sweet garlic puree, oak gravy and a mushroom crunch.
To wash it all down we drank a bottle of Pheasants tears with was dry and unfiltered. It has a light amber, pink color and a deep smokey taste, I will certainly be looking for this to add to my stock.
A great night with a relaxed atmosphere.
Fancy some fruit?
Fancy some alcohol?
Try this little beauty!!
I felt the need for a refreshing drink. I had Apple vodka and a melon. This is what became of it!
Peel and chop a full honey dew melon, pop it in a food blender and blend to a pulp. Add your desired amount of vodka and mix in a small amount of lemonade.
Refreshing and fruity.
I didn’t plan any cocktails for last nights mini party and so decided just to mix it up, I ended up with this little beauty!
Take the following ingredients, mix it up and drink 😀
– a dash of lemon liqueur
– a slug of raspberry vodka
– a top up of lemonade
– a lemon to dress
Tastes like SHERBET!
