St John Bone Marrow


Roast Bone Marrow and Parsley Salad
I’m partial to a bit of bone marrow, I love it’s taste, texture and smell.  Its salty fattiness is nicely broken up by the parsley salad. The sour dough bread was also great.

Snail and Oakleaf Salad
I don’t dislike snails but I do find they lack flavour and are too chewy. St Johns has been my best experience with snails, they were less chewy than previous experiences but still not something that inspires me.

Roast Middle White Pork
Nice moist pork, delicious crackling and a good amount of it. It was a really simple dish but the meat is so tasty you don’t need anything with it. Very tender. According to Wikipedia the Middle White is actually endangered but apparently it’s numbers are growing.

Madeleines and Ginger Loaf with Butterscotch Sauce
Fresh  Madeleines amazing! Good Ginger Loaf too.

Dos Cojones!
