Spring Menu Ideas

The clocks go forward, the snowdrops appear, the trees & hedgerows start springing into life & we tentatively put the winter sweaters away. Spring is when we at Kemp & Kemp  start to get all boingy & excited about what's just around the corner! Spring food is fresh, zingy, & pretty.

Spring Wedding Food

    • Spring Starters

    • Lightly Steamed Asparagus

      Fresh, lightly steamed English asparagus with our home-made hollandaise. It doesn’t come much simpler or much better as far as we are concerned. Did we mention we adore asparagus?

    • Griddled Asparagus Salad

      Griddled English asparagus & rocket salad with quails eggs, parmesan shavings and crispy pancetta.

    • Potted Shrimp

      Potted brown shrimp with lots of lemon & black pepper & brown bread & butter.

    • Spring Vegetable Soup

      Homemade spring vegetable minestrone with a blob of my pesto & a chunk of great bread.

    • Cheese Souffles

      Twice-baked cheese souffles on dressed baby spinach leaves.

    • Smoked Mackerel Pate

      Smoked mackerel pate with spring onions and horseradish.

    • Spring Mains

    • Spring Lamb

      Navarin of spring lamb with baby vegetables – one of life’s great treats. Or try a loin of spring lamb with my homemade apricot, garlic and coriander stuffing, served with basmati rice and a homemade aubergine chutney.

    • Flattened Chicken

      Flattened chicken where our butcher takes out all of the bones and I stuff under the skin with new wild garlic (prolific in spring) and whichever fresh herbs take my fancy, then drizzle it in olive oil & lemon, and serve it in slices. Divine!

    • Chicken and Stuffing

      Breast of chicken with softened leek and tarragon stuffing.

    • Roasted Pork

      Slow roasted pork, it’s fall-apart-tender and a great excuse to serve spring cauliflower with roasted fennel seeds.

    • Poached Salmon

      Poached salmon with hollandaise and buttered Jersey Royals.

    • Honey-roast Gammon

      Honey-roast warm gammon, with fresh pineapple salsa.
