We spent last week 'popping-up' in our Askew Road shop, turning our butchers shop into a restaurant by filling it with tables, chairs, guests, glasses, crockery, cake stands and more. Guests enjoyed a six-course surprise menu, which celebrated the arrival in the shops of our 100-day chickens. Here's a flavour of what went on.
|Rillettes, scratchings, 'bread and butter' pickle|
|Broth with watercress, peas and parsley|
|Ravioli, with asparagus and a butter sauce|
|Coq au vin, boulagere potatoes|
|Cheese, crispbreads made near the farm|
There was a beautiful dessert too, made by Sarah on our Yorkshire Farm, but it was so popular we're serving it again at our two pop-up events in Hackney this week, and don't want to spoil the surprise.
