Menu delights from l’escargot

We have lots of classics on the menu this week, including a wee battle of French classics against Scotland. Bourguignon vs Venison, which will win this weekend? I have taken up so much space with my words that I’ve none left to go through the whole menu, so I’ll leave you to have a look by yourself (the link is below).

Thinking ahead, next week we’re expecting chickens from Grierson Organic, beef from The Shetlands and a few more wild rabbits. A quick visit to Newton Garden showed that I might even have to start picking few lamb’s lettuce, mizuna and mustard leaves to use in the salad.
