Last One Of the Year!
It was our last Supper Club of the year on Friday evening! We welcomed a full house into The Mowbray to celebrate the joys of the Italian Canteen - with Yorkshire Pork Ragu as the headliner - plus a mighty fine crowd - excellent wines, Mowbray cocktails and our top Italian soundtrack.
The Yorkshire Pork Ragu was no ordinary ragu... Made from scratch in The Mowbray Kitchen it look days of preparation - using the finest, local ingredients - then served up to 130 guests in salt glaze bowls.
The Mowbray Kitchen Notes
This is a 2 part story of Pork Shoulder and Pork Bellies...
The Yorkshire pork bellies and shoulders are massaged with toasted fennel seeds, oregano, garlic and onion with plenty of salt and black pepper. They are then roasted on a high heat with fresh thyme, rosemary and bay leaves until they're nice and brown - then they are slowly braised with a little white wine, thyme, rosemary, bay, garlic and some hendos until they literally fall apart... They are then shredded and ready to be made into our secret recipe ragu.
