St. Johns Restaurant, Smithfield

(viewed 3886 times)

St Johns is an offal restaurant.

I always want to be really brave when I eat there but always wimp out at the last minute.

What I really want to eat is the squirrel, but its never been on the
menu when I've eaten there.

To share:

Lamb's tongue, green beans & anchovy

I had:

Smoked Gloucester Old Spot, Marrow & Parsley sauce

I thought the marrow was "bone marrow", but it was just the vegetable. Disappointing that I again ordered the safest thing on the menu, accidentally.

My companion had:

Tripe, Fennel & Bacon

Great restaurant, amazing food, service good, fantastic space, and
collection of really interesting fellow dinners -we had the most stylish
50-70 olds at our next table.

Frozen summer: Pasta with homemade pesto

(viewed 2038 times)
It rained all day today.

You can already feel the beginning of Autumn, so I thought I'd make something infused with the whole of the summer sunshine.

To make the pesto:

30g of basil leaves
1/3 cup olive oil
Pine nuts
Sea salt

I just chopped the basil finely and added to the oil.

Then add lots of grated parmiagiano, and a bit of sea salt.

And finally the toasted pinenuts, whole not chopped.

Let the flavours combine and intensify in the fridge for at least a few
hours before eating.
