Capricious spring, a beguiling season for all of us with the promise of light warmer days with magnolia and other tender blooms - fragile and beautiful, but prey to wind and late frost. Winter is past, yet not quite summer for chefs seeking inspiration through incoming ingredients.
As ever, in our quest for an exciting marriage of flavours we look to the south and the earlier warmth from Sicily and Provence, expressed in our perinally popular squid dish with caponata and aioli, saffron infused sauces and baby garlic for the fabulous Dover soles that are currently so plentiful from Brighton based day-boats.
Food for thought
Our walled garden already yields wild garlic for gnocchi and Angelica for delicate ice creams, with the promise of so much more produce this year thanks to Maggie and Sarah for planting and seeding new vegetables and herbs for the kitchen.
For now, we still rely on our suppliers to bring spring truffles, morels, dandelion salad to grace the Easter holiday table along with the fine rose veal from Fletching, beautifully prepared by head chef Jimmy. No sign yet of the milk lamb traditionally associated with the Easter table, but all of us look forward to making a holiday visit to Jeremy’s and Cafe Elvira a memorable occasion!
