Great British Menu’s Emily Watkins

This year the Great British Menu marked the 70th anniversary of D-Day. The chefs created dishes that evoke the wartime spirit of the generation as well as honour the bravery shown throughout the Second World War.
South West Chef Emily Watkins was picked to cook the fish course at the banquet but her main course “Don’t Come Back Empty Handed” a rabbit dish, attracted a lot of attention and praise.

Potted Venison

Potted Venison

This is what we call proper traditional English food. Nothing beats potted meat served with fresh crusty bread and a fruity home-made chutney. Great for picnics, light lunches, a starter and freezes beautifully, so make more than you need. This needs to be cooked overnight, so think ahead!

Rabbit Lasagne

Rabbit Lasagne

This dish was created for the last Tuscan night at the Pot Kiln and was a roaring success. It is melt in the mouth tender and worth every bit of the effort to make it. This is a dish for when you have time to get stuck in. It can be made in advance and finished in the oven when you are ready for it.
