2.  Celebration of Smoking @ Browns

James Brown reports: Food Festival Dinner - Celebration of Smoking - Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd October.  Now is your chance to try the smoked dishes we've been perfecting all year in one evening menu!

Starters: A couple of versions of our smoked salmon to show you how the flavours can be blended to give you contrasting sensations. We'll hot smoke what's in the market that week, hopefully we can get some huss and gurnard which smoke to become creamy and textured, almost like perfectly moist chicken breast. Smoked mackerel has been a revelation so we'll definitely have some of that.

Octopus and squid can be smoked and then marinated in a lovely olive oil like Nuno de Padro with a little chilli and a squeeze of lemon. We'll make make up a platter of cold meats like chicken, beef and slow cooked belly of pork served with spicy greengage chutney and homemade bread. Finally the smoked, steamed and then fried chicken served with the punchy XO sauce at the American Night got rave reviews, so we'll have that as well.

Mains: We're going to try to reproduce the beef that we had at the Bordeaux evening. Lightly cured, cold smoked and then seared. Several tables said that this was the best beef that they had ever eaten. Wow! If we can get close to that then people should be happy. Mind you they were drinking some pretty special wine at the time! We're also going to do this with venison. Game should smoke really well and with the shooting season coming soon, we will have some quail and pheasant on the menu, perhaps even hot smoked on the night.

Cheese: As it's food festival we want to showcase local cheeses. We had 20 at the Bordeaux night and will have another sensational board available for cheese lovers.

Desserts: Don't worry we won't be smoking these!

To book please call 01803 832572. This is not a set menu so our normal extremely reasonable pricing applies! Click here for more.
