Delight in the soothing embrace of family when loved ones gather to partake of a classic British Sunday roast. Tantalizing aromas and robust flavors characterize the weekly repast, where each bit imprints a warm memory of home on the plate.
Lady Grey Whiskey Ale mingles the effervescence of ginger ale with the sweetness of tea-brewed simple syrup and a kick of alcohol infused with vanilla beans and honey.
Like gift-wrapped packages, savory Beef Pasties promise a delightful reward. Flaky rounds of golden-brown puff pastry envelop a tantalizing mixture of tender filet and seasoned vegetables, baked until bubbling, in velvety broth.
Roasted Salt-and-Vinegar Potatoes—baby reds sliced, cooked, and simply dressed—prove a comforting staple.
Linger over dessert, reminiscing about celebrations past as afternoon stretches into evening. A conversation starter in its own right, our Plum-and-Caramel Tart will not be soon forgotten with its luscious peaks of glazed fruit atop layers of almond filling and caramel topping, spread over a crisp crust.
