Seekers & Lovers
As we enter deep Winter we turn to firelight, candlelight and gatherings with kindred spirits.
For this Feast we take inspiration from the hearty seasonality of a Burns Night Supper. For seekers and lovers of something a little different in January we wanted to make room in our hearts and minds to celebrate the time of year with a real feel good ‘mid-week’ Fire Feast.
Plus a plentiful supper and a proper winter warmer to look forward to - just right to carry you through from Wednesday evening into the weekend.
This is a must for anyone who enjoys slow, soulful food that is reflective of the time of year.
As ever our focus is on an abundance of seasonal ingredients and the joy of cooking simply. We can’t wait to present all of the flavours, textures and tones that cooking on fire and flame bring. And of course the Feast will be inspired by Rabbie Burns - alongside the primal feel goods that come from fire, camaraderie and The Mowbray Kitchen’s interpretation of the season.
The Fire Feast
The Fire Feast will be prepared Up On the Roof in our Fire Pit and served downstairs as a rolling feast in the joyful candlelit beauty of The Mowbray. During the day we’ll be building a fire and slowly roasting the tastiest and hearty picks of the season over the flames. We’ll make use of the dying embers to gently smoke, roast and flavour.
