Seasonal Menus

Spring menu: new shoots

The perennials are starting to shoot in the garden


The first artichokes are a sure sign of spring!

Along with blossom on the trees and a general stirring in the garden, the growing season is happening!


Gratin of artichokes with anchovies

Stuffed artichokes are almost a meal on their own. And great as a dish as part of a buffet table.


Salad of grilled lamb

This recipe uses one of the best lamb cuts – the boned middle loin of lamb, sometimes known as the rib-eye or backstrap.


Rhubarb and cinnamon cake

This well-known dessert is somewhere between a pudding and a cake. Serve with rich vanilla custard and a spoonful of stewed rhubarb.
