The Italian approach to eating represents everything we strive for at The Mowbray, From the ingredients to the sociability of feasting around a huge table for a long lazy evening of eating and drinking...It’s what we do best!
Fresh Focaccia & British Antipasti
Look around and you’ll find Italian inspired food masters using their skills and British produce to create culinary collaborations right here. We loved the Yorkshire Pecorino we used for our first supper club. Did you know you can get Burrata made in Wiltshire?
Pasta & Secondi
Yorkshire Pork Shoulder Milanese & Linguine
Classic Aubergine Parmigiana with Garlic Pangrattato (V)
Rocket & Fresh Herb Salad tossed with Preserved Yorkshire Tomatoes
Yes, traditionally you would have your pasta first, but we just love the comfort and satisfaction that comes from crisp, juicy pork with silky, tangy yet sweet yet savoury tomato sauce held by al dente linguine. Fresh basil, salty parmesan all lifted with just the right amount of lemon. A little bit of sauce on your chin.
It just has to be Tiramisu. We’re going to use British mascarpone from Dorset, Coffee roasted in Sheffield and a proper Italian recipe. Served in a big dish to fight over with a spoon.
CONKER make Gin, and they also make CONKER Cold Brew Coffee Liquor. It’s just great. There’s some in the tiramisu, and there’s a glass to sip to finish the evening.
As ever we’ll have a well stocked bar with a carefully curated wine list and some of our fav cocktails…
Expect a journey through Italian cafe culture - big band pop from the masters of swing to 1940's Italian beats.
