Dear <<First Name>>,
After watching others cull vines and render trees limbless I ventured into the fresh air this week (shock horror) and found myself in a wood carpeted with chervil and watercress. I gathered them up and returned with the goodies. Combined with some freshly laid (in fact still warm) eggs into a simple omelette , some nettle puree (expertly made according to local tradition…plenty of garlic and thickened with a little flour) some local cheese, bread and a cold beer a fine repast indeed. Really it’s the simple fresh things enjoyed in the moment that work best.

I was talking to somebody today about the importance of good oils and of course nuts are a great source. Romanian walnuts are great because they are fresh if bought from a market – just don’t be squeamish about any extra protein you might find. I regularly substitute local walnuts into dishes that call for other types. A bit of science here
Weekly Menu & Wines by The Glass
I was inspired by St Patricks Day for this week’s menu
so find a “colcannon soup” and some soda bread with “dulse” ie seaweed, some lamb cutlets with a minted pea couscous and of course a Guinness, beef & mushroom pie. Dessert needed to include rhubarb so it’s a white chocolate panna cotta with rhubarb/ginger salsa on top.
Wines have been paired by Rob at Corcova and can be enjoyed by the glass too
. Rob will be presenting the wines on Friday evening so please book if you want him to chat through them with you.
