Dave's Big One.

A recent fishing trip involving three generations of Urquharts resulted in a gorgeous 3lb trout being landed.  How could I refuse when David offered it up for this week's menu?  To accompany it I've knocked up a very pretty and darn tasty 'Pink Potato Salad' (home-grown beetroot, potatoes, spring onions and chives), and a delicious brown rice salad with soy, ginger, lime and coriander.

Spot the penguin...

Also on the menu this week is a slow-cooked loin of pork in honey and ginger, a Rainbow and Herb Salad (Roots own Rainbow Chard), and one of my favourite Ottolenghi recipes - Fennel and Cherry Tomato Crumble (so yummy).

Little Penguin's (website coming soon) cakes compliment the menu brilliantly this week in terms of colour; a beautifully moist Chocolate and Beetroot cake is joined by a marvelous Maple, Carrot and Pecan sponge.  YUM.

I had hoped to post some photos today, but unfortunately (although not for our lovely customers!), we'd sold out of the pork by 14:00 and the majority of the trout.  I'll try again tomorrow.
