Scallops wrapped in Parma ham with black pudding and sauce vierge; Oxtail with Rioja and chorizo.

29th January 2011


A Winter's Tail.

Jon B's birthday provided the perfect excuse to congregate once again. Oxtail was back on the menu and we discovered that even scallops can be "offalised" if you throw in some black pudding. Great plans for an all night poker session were sadly let down by the realisation that, once we had eaten, we just couldn't be arsed.


Chefs: Jon B and Howie

Venue: Simon's

Members present: Simon, Jason, Jon B, Howie and Dan.
