With less than 2 weeks to go until out literary fundraiser.
(Stops typing, runs in circles, shrieks).
We thoroughly enjoyed our tasting session at Lussmanns and we’re really excited to share the menu with you!
Agreeing the menu with Andrei. Lussmann is a bit like being invited to dine at the captains table.
You get to sit with the man himself while the staff produce a steady stream of fresh, sustainable dishes that all have the feel of being much loved, family recipes.
We wanted to offer a choice at our dinner and so we were trying 3 dishes of each of the 3 courses being served.
Warning us that trying to eat all 9 dishes would be inadvisable, Andrei assured us that it wouldn’t be wasted, and that anything we left would be recycled for the national grid!
So within minutes we were discussing how food waste becomes methane gas and contributes to renewable energy and examining his newly delivered doggy boxes (better for the environment than doggy bags).
The boxes themselves looked good enough to eat and probably taste better than some of the take aways we’ve been guilty of ordering.
We hope he won’t be offended if we say we’d quite like to follow this event with ‘An evening with Andrei Lussmann’.
So, without further ado, here is the menu for the evening, we’ll be in touch to ask you your choices soon and then all you have to do is turn up and enjoy!
Hertfordshire free-range chicken liver & Armagnac Parfait (our favourite)
Warmed chicory with Stilton, pear & walnuts
South coast Mackerel with a Colemans mustard & new potato salad
Line-caught smoked haddock mash, peas & wholegrain mustard cream (Looks and tastes great)

Lemon posset with almond crunch (One word – IMMENSE)
