St George’s Day Meal – a Great Success!

We recently held our St George’s Eve local meal at Macclesfield College’s Silk Room Restaurant. The night was a great success with a delicious menu created by the students and chef of the college.
We highlighted Danebridge Trout from Wincle, Aberdeen Angus Beef from Riverside and Reaseheath Ice cream, with fruit and veg from Cuttlefords, not forgetting Ruth’s tasty fresh rolls from Langley loaves!

Asparagus oh Asparagus!

photo-4Yes, it’s that time of year where for once a green vegetable features on my ‘treat list’ and each year I scour recipe books, magazines and the internet in search of alternative ideas – i love the simplicity of simply steamed asparagus with a good salted butter and a grinding of black pepper served with a hunk of real bread (Langley Loaves of course!) but I do like to play in the kitchen and in the past we’ve sampled asparagus lasagne, frittata, dipped in a softly boiled egg, sandwiches (yes, I know – but try one with soft white bread and lashings of butter!)

This years dish has been spotted in the may issue of delicious. magazine – a regular read even if i hardly manage to make the recipes these days but Asparagus, pecorino, lemon and mint risotto sounds like it might just fit the bill – to me it’s oozing springtime and after a bout of chilly weather I’m desperate to taste the beginnings of summer!
