The next YO31 secret diners club meal will be on Saturday 3rd November. So far I'm making mini Yorkshire puddings with Thorganby roast beef, gravy and horseradish. Hoping to find some wild horseradish locally. I'm also doing brushetta (Italian, I know) made with flour from 'Yorkshire Organic Millers', Spaunton, which is north west of Pickering. They do a great range of Soil Association Organic flours. On that will be black pudding, probably from Murton farmers market, some local soft blue cheese, and a dab of York honey to offset all that saltiness!
I'm also getting some hares from my gamekeeper friend, Richard, who shoots around Howden. I got some beautiful Mallards from him last month, and my traumatic (and wimpish) squeemishness at plucking and chopping is documented in my other blogs. The hare will be the same again, as it will more closely resemble my beloved cats, so I'm going to really have to 'man up' for this one! Wish me luck....
I would like to do hare burgers, as casserole or roast is too obvious, and I've never tried hare minced, and I reckon it's strong flovour should work well cradled in fresh iceberg, red onion rings and some sweet chutney. Mmmmm.
