Last night I made a whisky burger and there was no mistaking the whisky. Boy did it pack a punch!
I used the Hamburger gourmet book and it stated to use bourbon but as Gav isn’t too fond of that type of whisky I used a really peaty Scottish whisky called Smokehead. It was flipping amazing, really powerful and smoky.
It’s a really straightforward pattie, literally just 125g mince, doused in whisky and shaped. Griddle it for 2 minutes each side and it’s done. It was served in a brioche bun with rocket and a simple cheese sauce (chedder, water, chopped pepper)
A great Saturday night plate of food.
Once again I have frequented Altrincham Market House and loved it! It’s quirky, cute, reasonably priced and super tasty!
This time I ate from “honest crust” the pizza place and without a doubt it was the best pizza I have recently had!
If you like variety and relaxed eating this is the place for you!
Lambrini for those of you who don’t know, is a cheap, fizzy, low alcohol content wine which is sadly associated with underage teens trying to get tiddly!
However, it’s light, refreshing and easy to drink and every now and again, me and Gav treat ourselves!
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Lastnight we enjoyed the pleasure of having Gavs sister and husband staying with us.
We took them into knutsford and ended up in a new restaurant called Jack Rabbits.
Now this isn’t really a review because by the time we got to the restaurant I was totally tipsy but I wanted to share the fuzzy memories I do have as I think they were all rather positive! 😊
I had a pulled pork burger with a side of onion rings and it completely hit the mark. Very naughty, just on the right side of grease and with a hint of sweetness.
The thing I was most impressed with however was the range of sauces they brought to the table, which amongst everything you could want, included a very HOT sauce!!!
And the presentation was great!
