Notes from The Kitchen
Our guests book The Mowbray for all sorts of private dining...From corporate dining, dinners for birthdays, grazing feasts for drinks parties, lunches for business meetings and of course sumptuous wedding feasts!
We can't wait to get into our Summer menus with our gorgeous signature feasts - The Sharing Table, The House Feast and of course - everyone's favourite - The Laden Table.
As ever we take our pick from the freshest and seasonally delicious ingredients - so don't be surprised if we let you know we'll be swopping out some of our veggies if we have a glut of harvest fresh Summer delights!
To get a real feel for our menus this Summer season - our chefs Emma and Matt have profiled some of their favourite dishes from our feasting menus and their inspiration behind them... The Laden Table especially puts The Mowbray Kitchen through its paces - allowing our chefs to flex their culinary prowess with some skilled techniques including smoking, chargrilling, sousing, preserving and freshly baking and making everything you see on our menus.
We're incredibly proud to serve up this incredible food in The Mowbray. Always with a eye on detail we serve in beautiful salt glaze dishes to really complement how the food looks and tastes.
Over to Emma and Matt!
The Summer Sharing Table
Barbecue vibes, deluxe touches means this menu embodies the ultimate summer garden party without the weather debate!
Featuring our famous Mowbray made chargrilled flatbreads and plenty of house made pickles and slaw, guests will also be treated to slow cooked British beef brisket braised and glazed with Mowbray-made barbecue sauce & topped with crispy fried onions. This menu really encapsulates our ethos of travel and inspiration combined with the best of Yorkshire ingredients.
Matt spent a year in America and takes great pleasure in creating spice blends and rubs to enhance slow cooked meats. He also loves making roasted jalapeño & cheddar cornbread which is perfect for mopping up all that scratch-made BBQ sauce.
Guests will round lunch or dinner off with a pud from our Summer menu... A firm favourite already is the Blackcurrant Beauty - crisp white meringue, mascarpone & blackcurrant compote (this is our fave: the sharp blackcurrants are incredible against the super creamy mascarpone and sweet, crispy meringue)
The House Feast
We love this feast... It's 3 courses - with a real focus on what we love the most - English produce and flavours prepared simply and perfectly.
We've included absolute treats from our favourite time of year, with spectacular Dry Aged Pork from Yorkshire. Vegetarian guests won't miss out either with an unusual and summery main course - Yorkshire broad bean, spinach & feta M’Hanncha (stuffed filo pastry, rolled and baked in a tasty swirl) and the pick of the season's best veg.
Your guests can smoosh creamy ricotta onto our famous focaccia as platters and bowls of beautiful pork and veg emerge from the kitchen. We're also super loving fresh marinated anchovies, little gem lettuce & Yorkshire buttermilk dressing and Jersey Royals roasted with thyme & rosemary...
The House Feast is 3 courses - with the choice of a pud from our Summer pud menu - but we also sneak in an extra treat with our 'Mowbray Mallows'. These seriously grown-up marshmallows are full of fresh pink grapefruit zest and mint from our garden - the perfect finale moment!
The Laden Table
Our most popular feast by far...Loved by corporate diners and weddings guests alike. The Laden Table is a real foodie lovers feast - we put a lot of care, effort and love into curating this 3 course feast. We take some wonderful ingredients and use techniques such as smoking - which we do in house to take them to another level - free range chicken brined & smoked at The Mowbray with fresh radishes, watercress & tarragon mayonnaise is our one to watch - but we know that our chargrilled squid with chilli, lemon & parsley is going to be a firm favourite this Summer as well...
For mains you're in for a real treat - but you'll have a tough choice between two fantastic meats - chargrilled Yorkshire 32 day dry aged Picanha steak, (a Brazilian cut with a nice piece of fat on top to keep the meat juicy & delicious) served medium rare, sliced and dressed with salsa verde or chargrilled Yorkshire Dales lamb cutlets with preserved lemon & thyme.
Of course you could always go for both - which solves the problem of which one to go for..!
We'll also serve up whole roasted fish with lemon & herbs (Our fish is from JH Mann, the oldest and arguably best fishmonger in Sheffield, we simply select the best fish available for your feast)
With The Laden Table you get to choose two of our Mowbray made puds - we'd go for Peach Melba PAV, brown sugar meringue, vanilla cream, fresh peaches & raspberries and traditional custard tart with grated nutmeg if it was down to us - but you have a whole Summer pudding menu to choose from!
We'll finish the evening off with an indulgent square of Mowbray Scent Ganache: The glorious scent of the Mowbray, custom made for us by Essence + Alchemy distilled into a square of silky dark chocolate ganache. We’ve used smoked tea, rose & house-grown geraniums to capture our scent.
