“Cry 'God for Harry! England and Saint George!”
Fast on the heels of Easter this year we have St George’s day on the 23rd
and our own small gastro crusade to showcase home made English classics this week altho’ dragon steaks were hard to come by at the piata. I like working in local ingredients to classic dishes and so we have the Scotch Eggs with local quail eggs and a “leurda” leaning salsa verde, the Bakewell tart uses our home made raspberry jam and the strawberry trifle uses some Corcova Vin Alb Dulce and new season Romanian strawberries.
Check out the menu and wine notes in detail here: Week #17 Menu & Week #17 Wine Notes.
