A Taste Of Summer
Summer is pretty special, and to help you celebrate all that is brilliant about Summer our chefs have created a delicious limited edition menu to reflect your favourites this Summer, starting from just £9.99.
Let the summer fun begin: With a diary full of al fresco lunch dates and long summer nights, every day is full of opportunity to enjoy plenty of fresh flavours from our limited edition summer menu.
We caught up with our head chef Steve to get the low down on his favourite summer dishes and find out ‘whats whats’ with his limited edition menu.
Chef Knows Best
‘I wanted to create a real taste of summer, something that really screamed ‘sunny side up’ and that was the starting point of the Summer Specials menu, says Steve.
Plenty of heat needed to make an appearance in the menu, in homage to the sunshine and the Mango & Chilli King Prawns dish was an obvious choice for Steve.
Steve told us 'An old favourite, with a nod to the tropical flavours of the Caribbean, this dish is like a taste of holidays.’
With just the right amount of heat, the pan fried king prawns and roasted pepper are perfectly complimented with a fruity mango & chilli dressing, all sat perfectly on a toasted garlic ciabatta – delicious! No wonder it's Steve's favourite starter from our summer specials.
Burgers are easily our favourite go to fuss free, delicious, hands on dish for summer and our new Lamb and Rosemary Burger is no exception to this.
Topped with pulled shoulder of lamb in a rich gravy and crowned with feta cheese, with cucumber and iceberg lettuce in a brioche bun, it’s Steve’s favourite and we can see why!
Steve says ‘The burger is full of really tender rich flavoursome lamb and this summer treat takes me back to Greece, as it’s reminiscent of their famous gyros and souvlaki delicacies. The feta adds an excellent tang and richness to the dish and helps to transport you to sun drenched Greece.’
Served with skin-on fries and a mint, cucumber and feta dip it really makes the most of the season and is a perfect choice for al fresco dining.
Steve told us he took inspiration for his visual masterpiece pudding from a trip to the beach.
He said, ‘Whoops I Made A Mess' was inspired by tripping on the beach and dropping your ice-cream. Turning this traditional summer time pudding on its head, literally!
Placing the traditional cone upside down, gave Steve the great idea to use the cone as a type of vessel.
So what's inside, you ask?! The cone is full of dreamy strawberry & cream mousse. It's also served with clotted cream ice cream, strawberry ice cream, meringue and freeze-dried strawberry pieces - Yummy!
Steve said, ‘I wanted to create a modern take on a traditional dessert and what summer trip would be complete without an ice cream?!’
We couldn’t agree more and we hope you enjoy this summer delight as much as we have – What?! We take our jobs as taste testers very seriously!
