Spring Specials

Forks at the ready

Spring is a fantastic season; serving up the opportunity to taste the freshest flavours and an abundance of colour associated with the beginnings of summer. These dishes offer a delicious reason to dig in and enjoy this time of year.

Chef’s notes

"Spring is a really exciting time of the year for a chef – an abundance of fresh seasonal produce and lots of native British ingredients to work with. Spring lamb is at its best. Sea trout - if you’ve not tried this wild fish before, it is delicious, with a fresh and delicate taste. Fresh herbs – mint, rosemary and dill dial up all those Spring flavours. Then, my favourite dessert for a long time, elderflower posset with forest fruits – fragrant, light and delicate – the perfect end to a Spring meal."
