Lots of what passes as salad in my home is really a diabolical dishes disguised by the words ‘light lunch’ meaning we will have it when it is light outside, that’s all.
As 2020 turned out to be a proverbial lemon, I decided as the saying goes to make the most of it. Refreshing as an addition to your summer lemonade or as an ‘amuse bouche’ but I like it on its own as a light dessert after a meal, cleans and refreshes the palette. This dessert […]
Blueberry Cobler Whilst I love the theory of baking, the reality is a nightmare of equipment and mess in the sweltering heat in the kitchen rather than the garden in our hammock. 2020 really has put things in perspective, for myself at least and anything too complicated is swiftly scratched of my culinary dance card.

This fresh, piquant summer soup combines many of the ingredients you might find in a feisty salsa, but in this case they re all souped up. Add more chillies if you like it hot, and a handful of fresh sweetcorn kernels, sliced straight from the cob, is a good addition if you have them. A scattering of diced avocado can replace the soured cream, if you prefer.
In the meantime I have had a blissful time making their recipe suggestions, including these wonderful biscuits (Americans would say crackers) that are fantastic with cheese or all alone as a snack, they keep for days, weeks, even, I assume – though they have never lasted long enough to find out.
You can’t be a Real Country unless you have a beer and an airline—it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer
With that in mind, we crammed the fridges full with 4 new beers; Lagunitas IPA, Mosaic IPA, Tally Ho Ale & Sole Star Pale Amber Ale. I picked them, which means they’re outstanding.
The first glimmers of Spring are in the air, and that means we can thaw the Audi out and get a fresh delivery of produce from our farm in Norfolk. Time for a menu change methinks. We’ve got guinea fowls with pumpkin purée, cannelloni with spinach & ricotta, lemons soles covered in […]
Got a bit chilly outside didn’t it? The year’s gone by so quickly hasn’t it? You really should have done that thing you super wanted to have done by now shouldn’t you? While you’ve been procrastinating in Autumnal cliches our chef Halim’s gone hell for leather and come up with the ideal menu to warm those […]
What-ho, what’s that of the port bow? Why, it’s the Summer menu, ready to belie all the assumptions everyone makes about Brits’ cuisine being heavy stodgy bog food.

Sick to the gills of saying “We only do bottled beer I’m afraid” for the 47,648th time, our intrepid restaurant manager came up with a capital idea: let’s get a keg. Herein he discovered Mosaic Pale Ale by the pint, a craft (see pretentious) but oh me oh my delicious English beer so glorious it’s […]
It’s been a good news–bad news week here in the Frontline’s service wing . . . The good news is pints of Adnams Jack Brand Craft Beer are £2.80 a pint in the Member’s Club Bar. That is simply ridiculous, even as I read it back. Cheapest price in London, for an English craft beer; […]

It’s January, again, and to commiserate together, we’ll be introducing Adnams’ glorious Broadside Ale by the pint at the Frontline Club bar; all at an astonishingly cheap price for those member’s looking for something a little different from their trips to the club mid Winter. Not satisfied with that? We’ll also be running their Dry Hopped Lager as […]

As we head into 2013 with all the vim and vigour you would expect from the Frontline Club, I thought it would be a good time to take a brief look at what happened in 2012. Firstly, the fact that you are reading this on our new and improved website is thanks to the hard […]

Celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada, Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to start the holiday season off by enjoying a lavish meal with family and friends.
