Mushrooms on Toast with a Cream Sauce

My version of a culinary classic, mushrooms on toast. Pave bread toasted with Maitre d’hotel butter makes a heavenly base for meaty and delicate chestnut mushrooms. All surrounded with a mushroom and sherry infused sauce that brings out those nutty tones and enhances that rich flavour.

Mushroom Ragu

A vegetarian take on a much loved Italian classic, Ragu. Letting the  pasta marry with the mushroom sauce for the final few minutes of cooking time really does bring this dish to life, finishing with creamy Crème fraîche and 24 month aged parmesan cheese gives it that Moorish quality. Only using the best quality ingredients available, as is the case with all great Italian cooking.

Mince Pies From Scratch

Luxurious mincemeat held inside a melt in your mouth shortcrust pastry, a much loved Christmas treat that goes perfectly with vanilla ice cream or custard. Making your own mincemeat from scratch really does bring home that Christmas spirit as well as allowing you to create a filling that I promise is 10 times better than any store bought version.

Rum & Raisin Panna Cotta

Created in response to my Full moon event which truly  stretched my imagination as well as my ability to balance  authoritative flavours, resulting to what I feel is a  great alternative to the spell binding rum and raisin combination.
