With the start of a new, fresh, Spring season swiftly upon us- one of new beginnings- it’s only right that The Eaves Restaurant at The Granny Mouse Country House & Spa keeps up with the times, and places their patrons in that mind-set, with a delicious and tantalizing new menu- one in line with this new season. Wayland Green, the executive culinary artist at Granny Mouse, spends a lot of time researching and developing his dishes, to fit the season as well as ensuring that they are staying in line with the latest trends.
With this new menu, there is something for everyone to enjoy, something that will satisfy everyone’s cravings. One wouldn’t usually think to combine the flavours of grilled monk fish with corn, or lentils with prune & apricot compote- and yet that’s exactly what Wayland Green has done. He enjoys using fresh, seasonal ingredients, to create new and inventive dishes. “It’s important to let the flavours speak for themselves, and not to over complicate their natural, raw flavours”, says Green.
To get started, the stewed pear and camembert with rocket and radish salad, candied cashew crumbs and raspberries is a dish that combines both sweet and savoury, and is an absolute must-try. Or why not try the grilled monk fish, sautéed black cherry tomatoes, sweet corn puree with sautéed baby leaf spinach and monk fish lemon butter? This fresh seafood dish is light, yet wholesome, and leaves you wanting more.
For those that enjoy the rich flavours of home-grown vegetables, the warm Moroccan lentil and couscous salad with spiced hummus, prune and apricot compote and coriander pesto is for you! This meal highlights the greatness of natural and organic flavours, without having to add too many other components.
There’s also a more hearty option, for anyone who loves thetaste of a proper home cooked meal, but, of course, Wayland Green has put his own spin on it. Coffee beef fillet, sweet potato puree with cranberry herb pesto, roast butternut and crispy spinach- there are all the elements one needs for a ‘feel good’ meal, but with modern elements to it as well.
What’s a meal without a little something sweet to end off on? The cinnamon sponge, butterscotch peaches with sweet coconut cream and mint and dark chocolate truffles ticks all the boxes when it comes to enjoying something fruity, yet sugary.
Not only does Granny Mouse provide these delicious meals, but it’s set in the middle of the beautiful countryside- so not only is your appetite fulfilled, but your eyes are too.
