A bracing walk in the countryside, wrapped up against the elements, then home to light the fire & with the divine smell of a hearty casserole filling the kitchen, to pour a glass of red wine. & read the papers. This is us on most Winter Sundays! What follows are our ideas (though do remember we make you anything you would like) for winter wedding food. Food that is unashamedly comforting & warming, food that feels right when the days are short & the nights are long.
Caramelised Onion Salad
Caramelised onion, parma ham & parmesan salad with a drizzle of balsamic.

My homemade chicken liver & calvados pate, with spiced apple chutney & toasted walnut bread.
