Risotto of Pea, Mint and Asparagus.

A beautiful spring time dish this risotto is perfect alone or as an accompaniment to a nice piece of white fish such as cod or plaice. It’s also a wonderful vegetarian or vegan option minus the Parmesan, it’s something we often utilise for these diets at the pub where we can. The addition of lemon…

Fish, Triple Cooked Chips and Proper Mushy Peas.

Been wanting to post this one for a while, finally got round to it this afternoon. Commonly known as England’s national dish it’d be rude for an English chef to not share his recipe.

This is another amazing example of what you can do with a bit of egg and flour, it never ceases…

White Chocolate Panna Cotta with Berries and Chocolate Crumb.

Nothing beats a good Panna Cotta, it’s essentially a set cream infused with vanilla that should have a nice jiggly effect to it once set. Though I have created multiple variations of this dish today I will be keeping it simple with a basic white chocolate and vanilla take garnished with berries and a chocolate…
