As you may have seen earlier in the week, my son Jan-Martijn has recently been appointed Head Chef at Penny Black Restaurant in Fulham Road, Chelsea. Opening is scheduled for the 3rd week in February, so you can imagine the hectic pace of his life at the moment. The photo of Chef doing dangerous things at Victoria Falls was taken some years back! I’ve been lucky enough to get a sneak preview of the menu and I’ve chosen the following to tickle your taste buds!
As I haven’t a clue what it is!
Mussels & Cockles, Cider & Mustard Broth, Carrots, Kohlrabi & Cress
It reminded me of Sweet Molly Malone as she walked the streets broad and narrow – and the dish sounds thoroughly exotic
Pigs Head Terrine, Pear Chutney, Toast Brawn sounding favourite and I love pears – and chutney for that matter!
Ginger Pig Sausages & Mashed Potatoes
Roast Lemon Chicken, Bread Sauce & Vegetables
A firm favourite, especially the Bread Sauce
Pigeon Pie, Bacon and Red Cabbage
Something I’ve never eaten but sounds very ‘London’
Chocolate & Rum Cake, Vanilla Ice Cream
Just this thanks very much!
Made your mouth water? I bet it has!
