Spring dinner in pictures



Asparagus mimosa

It's called mimosa as the sieved egg looks like the yellow and white mimosa flowers...


Gorgeous cheeses from Neals Yard including my favourite Childerwicksbury. Poilane bread is not as good as St John's sour dough!

Candied Thyme

Dried laundry and glasses

Laundry drying over the aga

Even washing up can look beautiful. One guest said "Your kitchen looks like a drawing"

Menu

Kir Royale

Focaccia shots filled with caperberries, olives, sunblush tomatoes

Asparagus mimosa garnished with viola flowers with garlic butter

Squid ink risotto with wild garlic and parmesan

Salad of pea shoots, mache and rocket with dijon mustard dressing

British and Italian cheeses with poilane bread, chutney from The House of Chutney, almonds and oatcakes

Bergamot, lime and amalfi lemon posset with candied Thyme

  6. You have a beautiful kitchen! And mimosa looks like a bunch of flowers and should easily be used as a decor!
