Late Winter Newsletter

January and February 2019

January 18, 2019

 

As we brace ourselves for the beast of the east, west or north to arrive, we are beavering away in all parts of Kensington.
In W10 at our Wholesale Bakery we produce our breads, pastries, brownies, truffles, granola and very much more, and in the
Production Kitchen¬†next door, we create daily doses of delicious-ness by way of perfect dishes for you to serve at home; braised duck, chicken or beef, grain salads with vegetables, fruits and nuts, roasted chicken pies, sandwiches, souffles, soups¬†‚Ķand¬†they have started the Seville Orange Marmalade production PLUS the 2019¬†Vin d’Orange..!¬†

Here in W8 we have hit the 2019-ground running Рon both sides of the street. The Restaurant, open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner every day (Lunch only on Sunday) has seen many familiar customer faces returning already this year Рso not everyone it seems, has taken an extended break.   The shop, having done a momentous Christmas and New Year is back into the swing, and all the staff have returned from their brief holiday with a spring in their step. 

Sunday news from the Shop and Restaurant:¬†¬†The Shop is¬†now open from 9am (not 10am) on a Sunday ~ and then of course do not forget those¬†Winter-Warming Sunday Lunches¬†at the Restaurant¬†– book soon for all the family!¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†Our menus are constantly being topped up with ‚Äėsurprises‚Äô coming from Italy, France or Spain.¬†¬†In particular, you¬†should try the blood oranges,¬†agretti, purple artichokes or the black truffles from Umbria.¬†¬†Of course¬†Yorkshire is already producing giant quantities of spring rhubarb – so we are buying it every day!¬† From the Cornish and Scottish fishermen, we are sourcing delicious turbot, brill, scallops, squid and cod, and from our¬†favourite¬†organic farm at Rhug Estate in Wales, we receive weekly deliveries of venison and lamb.¬†¬†

 

We are often asked if we serve gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, vegetarian or ‚Äúlow-low‚ÄĚ dishes and the answer is – (as it has been for over 34 years) ~YES!¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†Our menus are written twice-daily, so we are constantly refreshing them to reflect the ingredients we have bought on the day.¬† All our dishes are cooked to order, so any requested ‚Äėalteration‚Äô may be done with ease! So¬†please¬†just ask……¬†

We have already taken Private Dining Room bookings for this year, for a variety of occasions and have received such lovely comments from the hosts, for the food, atmosphere and the service.  So, if you have a celebration in mind, a cocktail party or a corporate dinner to plan, do get in touch Рwe would love to hear from you.  The Private Room seats 12 to 30 comfortably, and each event is planned by us on a bespoke basis. 

Finally….I am asked¬†almost¬†99 times a day for a progress report on our ‚ÄúCorner Shop‚ÄĚ.¬† I too am sad that progress has been a little slow, but I am thrilled that we have now been granted a¬†Licence. Our architect, designer and builder are all working together, singing from the same song sheet,¬†and longing for its completion as much as we are!
So my answer¬†to the question¬†is¬†….‚Äúsome time¬†this year!!!‚Ä̬†

With best wishes for a delicious start to 2019,
Sally
