It seems odd to be thinking about comfort food but then again it’s bloody odd that the weather is quite so filthy in August. Anyway, come into the Canteen and cosy up with a tartiflette to start followed by pork belly or graze on a cheeseboard (we get all of our cheese from Northcote Road food hero Hamish Johnston) with a bottle of red (the De L’Hospitalet Pinot Noir is good and Tilia Malbec is proving very popular).
Alternatively take the lead of the girls who were in the Canteen last night and crack open a bottle of prosecco (Jeio) and show this week who is boss.
Oh and one last thing, chef Kirrin has added a new dessert tonight, white chocolate and cointreau and creme brulee – yum.
