Neil and Catherine's Late Night

A wonderful, long, relaxed evening. This was Neil and Catherine's second time with us and as before, it was great fun. Hope to see you all again soon.

Neil, Catherine and friends. That's the beef they're eating.

I served:
Soda treacle bread and butter. Warm spiced nuts.
Mushroom and truffle velouté.
Ham hock with celeriac remoulade and pea shoots.
Braised shin of beef and vegetables, spinach, Portobello mushrooms, roast onion purée and three mustard mash.
Iced tea ice.
Toffee Blueberries (recipe coming soon).
Sticky apple sponge, rhubarb sorbet, apple crisps, crystallised pistachios.
Orange rum truffles.

My new starter. Home cooked ham hock with celeriac remoulade with chargrilled toast and capers.
The pea shoots are dressed with a honey and mustard glaze.
Portobello mushrooms need only simple grilling to be delicious. I use them to top the beef.

A proper picture of the dessert. I'm now using a Canon 600D. 
The end of the evening.
