Ben’s Cauliflower Cheese

What better way to follow a walk on the beach, an autumn surf or just cosying up as the evening’s draw in than with a hearty home made cauliflower cheese.

And who better to provide the best recipe than our very own Ben Tunnicliffe.

Have a go at his take on a warming winter classic:-

Make a white sauce/béchamel, (Recipes readily available online) add a bit of English mustard some strong cheddar and a bit of blue cheese to taste, adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if necessary
Fry or grill some smoked bacon until crispy, cool and blitz in a food processor with some breadcrumbs
Break cauliflower into florets and boil in salted water until just cooked. Refresh in cold water if not using straight away and drain really well.
Put the cauliflower florets into a suitable oven proof dish cover with plenty of sauce, scatter smoked bacon bread crumbs over and bake at approx 180 until piping hot and golden brown, if hot but not brown, finish under a hot grill briefly, be careful it will colour quickly under the grill

Woman and Champagne

This month we look at possibly the most celebrated of wines – Champagne! And look at one of the most delightful features of our current wine list – Veuve Cliquot.

Did you know champagne was originally created by accident? It is said that wine makers tried to create a still wine but the cold temperatures in northern France prematurely halted fermentation, leaving dormant yeast cells, which in the spring would awaken and start fermenting again causing 90% of the bottles to explode, and that is how champagne was born.

What is not well known, is that it has been ladies at the forefront of champagne making.

Barbe-Nicole Clicquot Ponsardin stepped into the executive position of her deceased husbands winery, and by the time of her death in 1866, Veuve Clicquot was one of only four or five brands known worldwide. This century is no different with Virginie Taittinger being the first lady to create her own unique assemblage. Virginie Taittingers family is no exception to owing their success to a lady. Her grandmother Yolande re-built the famous Maison Piper-Heidsieck

In fact, the past 200 years of Champagne history can be viewed through the lives of the powerful women who helped shape it.

For ten years Madame Louise Pommery owned a small vineyard in 1868 she expanded it to a 124-acre vineyard, at the time of her death in 1890 Pommery champagne was drunk in 80 different countries.

The great name of Bollinger, was also created by a woman, Madame Bollinger.

So celebrate Women and Champagne and try the lovely Veuve Cliquot in the restaurant today, a tightly knit champagne, focused by robust acidity and a streak of minerality, offering subtle notes of white peach, anise, biscuit and kumquat perfectly paired with fish.
