Tasty treats for Summer 2015!
We're excited to present a new regular on our specials board for Summer 2015 that features some of the best hot smoked salmon Scotland has to offer!
The Green Shack in Oban is legendary and a firm favorite of ours when we make a rare foray off the island in the summer. The owner, John Ogdon, is passionate about seafood and produces some of the most flavoursome, tender, hot smoked salmon money can buy and we're putting it in a superb new sandwich!
We've also been working on new home made bread for all our sandwiches and salads. The Little Sourdough bakery have been key in helping to guide us through the whole process of creating and using a unique Kerrera Sourdough Starter that we use instead of yeast to help our loaves rise. We're still using 100% Doves Farm Organic flour and the only other ingredients are water and kosher salt.
We've just taken delivery of our new pigs that we keep up at Balliemore Farm with our neighbours Gill and Tim. This is the third year we've kept these amazing animals and we're delighted to be able to share some of the craft charcuterie creations that are starting to bear fruit!
Air dried ham or proscuitto/parma/serrano, depending where you are, is the longest of long game craft creations! We cured these full legs in October 2014 and they have been hanging, drying and maturing ever since.
The resulting creation is a real delight and even though we only have a few legs, we're still planning on pairing some wafer thin slices with some avocado smash on sourdough toast at various points in the season!
