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”.
