Back to the Future.........

We have some awesome food coming over the “back to the future” weekend. (26th & 27th March) Some old favourites, like the six foot, chicken slab & a new take on the lamb wrap, some of our current trends, & some very exciting dishes on the horizon of our future! I wouldn’t even know where to start with the new items, our inspired cheese burger with sourdough brioche bun, the macaroni & cheese is just divine, pork & chorizo? what else can I say... a marriage made in pig heaven or maybe just mine. We even have a contender to replace the chicken salad, a beautiful combination of flavours brought together by the orange cinnamon emulsion, it has that same wow factor that had us all going crazy over the lemon lime dressing! Feedback from the weekend will help guide our menu over the coming months & we are all really excited by the new dishes, I don’t know whether I could even pick a favourite! The produce we are getting our hands on not only for the weekend but currently is awesome & we are all very excited by it!

Speaking of produce, we have been getting in some organic suckling pigs & beautiful organic squash & pumpkins from one of our suppliers. Maybe even coming into the winter months there’s a good chance of getting our hands on some truffles! All of this great produce combined with the inspiration for the back to the future weekend & we are considering running produce/ underground dinners once a month depending on interest. Possibly even starting in a few weeks. We’re throwing around the idea of a 6-8 course dinner featuring suckling pig as part of the meal & finishing with an awesome cheese board. If you are interested we will take your name & number & let you know once we’ve decided on a date!

I have to apologise for being out & about a little more recently, & also thank the staff for holding the fort whilst I have been indisposed. Truth is I am trying to get myself back into shape! Or a better shape.... I was asked to donate a prize for vision’s weight loss challenge they are running, & this has kick started what feels like my selfish indulgence to try & drop some weight & maybe even compete in a triathlon again. I’ve been riding with Gav, Denis & co. regularly, & race acrossthe park when I get time to fit in a boxing class with Les. Considering I’ve never been much of a fan of gyms, I am spending a few hours a week down at vision & is pretty amazing. If you need a kick start like I did I’d definitely head down & see them! Apart from being a little tired, I am feeling great & thinking clearer, which will hopefully mean that I can be even more productive & inspirational! (I know this is wishful thinking)

Hope you all enjoy!

Regards, Nick
