Goodbye Winter… Hello Spring!
Spring is here (allegedly!) & with it comes an abundance of new ingredients for The Chesil’s kitchen.
Delicious, tasty Spring veg like spinach, kale, leeks & wild garlic will feature on our menus over the coming weeks, not forgetting wonderful watercress which adds a peppery yet smooth edge to dishes and is highly nutritious. We love it & use it in salads & garnishes, in classic soups – basically whenever we can!
If you are feeling fishy then the humble plaice is bang in season , as is wild salmon & those lovely succulent mussels, cockles & oysters. Chef’s also very happy to have abundance of his absolute favourite spud: the one & only Jersey Royal!
And into May comes a Chesil favourite, that British classic: asparagus. It’s a notoriously sensitive crop & a very short season so we are hoping & praying for sunshine. Full flavoured, deliciously sweet and tender asparagus is regularly described as the ‘best in the world’… and who are we to argue? It’s well worth the wait for its unbeatable flavour and freshness & Chef has once again created his special ‘Asparagus Menu’ featuring a whole range of asparagus inspired specials available throughout May & June.
