This weekends dinner menu – Oldstone – 11&12 May 2012

Just spoke to the fish supplier…arriving in the morning will be Cornish cod cheeks (sweet and succulent), Mackerel caught from two rowing boats off Chesil beach in Dorset (can’t wait!), Brill from Brixham (I know we had it on the menu last weekend but it was lovely and supports the British skippers), and some Welsh sea bass.

                    Got some more smashing, jumbo Wye valley asparagus this morning……a bit on the pricey side but many of the fields are waterlogged and it has to be cut by hand. So much for that telly chef from up north who reckons it is 90p a bunch at the moment….dream on! (I did see a bunch of 6 muddy, medium sized sticks in the supermarket but even they were 2 quid!)
