Menu of the Week & Other Foodie News

It’s all happening in the kitchen…

Today – we are busy preparing some of our ‘Granny Anne’s Lemon and Thyme cordial’ for the Cardiff Harbour Festival this weekend and have made an extra stock for the shop.  This refreshing zesty cordial won a commended True Taste of Wales award last year and would make a quirky little gift for someone @ £3.50.  Please pop into the shop if you’d like to buy some.

Tomorrow (Wednesday), freshly prepared and in the fridge by the end of the day:-

Free range chicken and chorizo cassoulet with a trio of beans and pulses in a rich red wine and smoked paprika sauce

Welsh beef and aubergine curry with a crush of ej’s special spices

£4.50 single portion or £8.50 for a double portion

Friday – we are baking some deluxe dark chocolate and lemon & mascarpone cupcakes @ £2.50 each.  If you’d like to order some let us know asap, baking on Thursday!
