Hail to the nose to the tail!


Ceps on toast
Venison saddle
Braised squid with tomato and fennel
Lamb sweetbreads with daikon
Roasted Middlewhite (pork) with bonemarrow and parsley sauce

Side of runner beans and new potatoes
Treacle tart (minus one bite)
Strawberry sorbet and vodka

LOCATION: St John Restaurant and Bar, 26 St. John Street, Clerkenwell, London
CATEGORY: British, Nose to Tail
DRINK: Glass of Touraine Sauvignon (2009) Domaine Ricard 'Le Petiot', glass of Alsace Edelzwicker (2008) Domaine Gerard Metz and a bottle of Red Anjou (Loire 2008) La Grange Aux Belles 'Prince'
WE THINK: Ceps on toast to die for and sweetbreads to kill for. The roast pork was so comforting and reminiscent of the classic Danish dish 'Stegt flæsk med persillesovs' it nearly made us shed a tear. The rest of the food? Incredibly delicious, too. Good wine choices.
