March marked the 4th Cheshire Cat Food Competition.
The task was to be creative with Sandwiches and specials for our lunch menus.
First up was the Fitzherbert Arms who made the most delicious wild garlic soup! Using locally picked wild garlic with mint and homemade parsnip crisps. Next up was the Cholmondeley Arms, who presented a delicious vegetarian sandwich option of Avocado, minted goat’s cheese and beetroot on toasted sourdough with a soft boiled egg and a homemade duck pastrami, mozzarella and peach pickle sandwich.
The Three Greyhounds made a beautiful Ham Hock and apple, with a fried duck egg on granary toast and a cup of Spiced Sweet Potato soup.
The Bulls’ Head made a tasty, and delicious super food soup and a British pastrami and pickle sandwich.
The Church Inn had created a game consommé and came up with the idea of the Cheshire Cat Rarebit. The idea of a bar nibble of rarebit on toast with a half of local ale served at the bar throughout the day.
The Roebuck wow’d with their homemade focaccia, an open mackerel and beetroot sandwich and a toasted ciabatta with Artichoke, smoked mozzarella and pistachio pesto.
All six teams came up with some fantastic ideas. Their imaginative elements will be used on our menus in the future! It was a very close call but the winners for the second time running were The Cholmondeley Arms! Watch this space for new additions to our lunch menus very soon!
