Moor Hall supports the best of British
Moor Hall Hotel & Spa in Sutton Coldfield is inviting customers to join in a celebration of British food and drink as part of British Food Fortnight, which runs from 17th September to 2nd October.
Now in its tenth year, British Food Fortnight is a national event which aims to raise awareness of the diversity of delicious home-grown, locally sourced British food and drink which makes Britain great. Moor Hall’s menus already include information regarding the number of miles the main ingredients in each dish have travelled from field to plate (known as “food miles”) as part of its commitment to sourcing locally, and for British Food Fortnight, the menus at the two restaurants will feature dishes with a particularly British flavour.
Starters such as game terrine with pear & cider chutney and main courses such as stuffed leg of Shropshire chicken wrapped in smoked bacon with roasted plums will feature in the Oak Room fine dining restaurant, while in the carvery, the Chef’s Specials will include roast Suffolk gammon with parsley and onion sauce and local faggots, mushy peas and shallot gravy.
Lee Romillie, Head Chef explained: “There is a sad tendency to think of British food as plain and uninteresting but that is just not the case. At Moor Hall we always use the best local seasonal produce and we hope that the imaginative dishes on offer during British Food Fortnight will open people’s eyes to the fantastic produce available right on our doorstep”.
