Food always keeps our focus here at Boadicea… and so far, this summer has meant the return of a few of our favourite ingredients. We’ve incorporated the beautiful produce that loves the hot weather into our menu, which features some of our most colourful dishes yet!
One of our favourite vegetables to use in summer is beetroot – a truly versatile ingredient that lends itself to a variety of cooking styles. We’ve paired beetroot, prepared three ways – salt baked, pickled and sliced into carpaccio – with our tangy goats’ cheese mousse. Finished with a crunchy hazelnut dukkha, this dish is a pure delight as a starter or a lighter main meal – we love it!
With meat also at its best, we’ve used aubergine to complement succulent lamb rump. Slow roasted to intensify its natural flavour, our aubergine and aubergine puree are natural accompaniments to such a sweet, tender meat – and our spicy lamb sauce ensures the whole plate sings! Perfect for those long, lazy Sunday lunches in the sun.
Greedy for greens
With so many leafy vegetables and herbs thriving in the summer season, it’s greens galore at Boadicea. From the fresh, crunchy lettuce in our salads, to the aromatic fennel paired with our pan-fried chicken, and the spinach accompanying our delicious gnocchi, vibrant greens has been gracing our plates all summer long.
Ready for reds
A summer picnic staple, the humble tomato, features throughout the new menu. We have been roasting, salting and grilling ours to maximise their natural, juicy sweetness for starters and mains alike – you’ll love our tomato risotto. Another favourite ‘red’ this summer is peppers – featured in our chutneys and popular vegetarian falafel burger, nothing says summer quite like this vibrant veg.
Bonkers for berries
Berries are booming at this time of year, so we’ve utilised them to the max in our desserts and on the cocktail menu. From the strawberries in our Eton mess, to the raspberries in our sorbet and frozen daquiris, these sweet flavours are perfect to cool and refresh your taste buds at the end of your meal – or the end of a long week!
