This is Chef Mark Lloyds take on a classic pot roast. The classic garnish is bread sauce and game chips, but he has changed game chips for buttery, rich Fondant potatoes. You could serve this with parsnip mash and kale with chestnuts.
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.
This dish makes a lovely Sunday lunch or smart main course; however table manners aside, nothing beats picking up the bird at the end and nibbling off those last juicy bits from the legs & wings!
