We often love to feature the pork of Gunthorp Farm, this evening we will be cutting the tenderloins out of the pork short loins we buy, and rolling them up with a sausage we make out of the trimmings of said pork short loin. For good measure, we spike it with sage from Garden to Be, and serve it with an intense cherry compote made from Seedling’s tart cherries (this is also dynamite on our Sally Lunn French Toast.) Locally grown green and dragon’s tongue beans (an heirloom runner bean) and butter lettuce, plus Seedling’s blackberries, Twin Hawks’ Hungarian Wax Peppers, and Harmony Valley’s melons, and Hidden Valley Farm’s wild mushrooms round out the localvore items on the menu.

Ste Germain is a wonderful French liquer of elderflowers, and we’ve found it makes a fantastic champagne cocktail when mixed with Asprinio, a superbly tart and refreshing bubbly from Southern Italy.
