Here’s this week’s menu, to order on Tuesday 20 October for delivery on Thursday 22 October

Menu

Mulligatawny with crusty bread roll. £5.50

A relic of the Raj, this is one of the great gastronomic hybrids. It’s said that Mulligatawny soup was one of the earliest dishes developed in India, combining British concepts of how food should be presented and Indian recipes.

Roast mushroom soup with baguette. £5.00

Sweet white onion, thyme and roast portabella mushrooms. A good, classic soup.

Three rice chicken. S £650. L £12.00

A very popular dish which Harriet offered early in lockdown. Roast corn fed chicken, three types of rice and a wonderful sesame oil dressing. Small or large.

Duck confit with French peas and sauté potatoes. £12.50

Soft and succulent duck legs with petit pois à la français and potatoes sautéed in duck fat.

4 lamb Lancashire hotpot. £12.75

By request from quite a few, a rich lamb stew made from four different cuts of lamb and topped with sliced potatoes.

Juicy, luscious, slow-cooked pork belly, reduced wine gravy, celeriac mash & crackling.

Keralan curry with rice, roti & katchumber. B £12.00. P £12.00. V £8.00

Kerala is India’s spice hub. This is where Vasco de Gama landed in the quest for India’s prized spices. Fresh coconut, curry leaves, green chillies, shallots, coconut oil and a subtle dose of spices are always in the mix. Beef or prawn or vegetable.

Pasta alla Trapanese with garlic bread. £7.50

This wonderful sauce is made from the last of the massive haul of basil from a friend’s allotment, mixed with rich, juicy plum tomatoes and roasted almonds. Pasta & garlic bread.

Macaroni cheese. £8.50

By request! Elbow macaroni, very cheesy sauce, studded with quails eggs, cherry tomatoes, and topped with breadcrumbs & crispy bacon.

Lindy’s New York cheesecake. £6.00
