September at Charlotte’s Bistro
Enjoy a riot of autumnal flavours at the Bistro this month with classic dishes designed to warm & comfort your tastebuds from ox cheek with Jerusalem artichokes to roasted pork with Bramley apples and a crème caramel with poached pears… yummy…
Broccoli & Stilton Soup . Sourdough Croutons
A classically prepared soup made with Colston Bassett stilton, puréed and also crumbled on top. Freshly prepared sourdough croutons add a delicious extra crunch.
Gin-cured Salmon . Cucumber. Lemon
A Bistro favourite, the salmon is cured in gin, juniper and pink peppercorns for depth of flavour and paired with pickled cucumber and lemon purée. A light & fresh dish, it’ll keep that summery feeling going – it’s basically salmon with a gin and tonic!
Watercress Risotto . Berkswell Cheese
This deliciously vibrant green dish showcases the season’s peppery watercress alongside crumbly Berkswell cheese – the English answer to parmesan – for an original and fresh risotto.
Roasted Ox Cheek . Jerusalem Artichoke . Crispy Kale . Horseradish
A roll-call of classic autumn favourites, this rich and indulgent piece of beef from local Ealing butchers, Hook & Cleaver, is slow roasted and then pan-fried to caramelise the outside. Served with puréed and roasted artichoke alongside kale with freshly grated horseradish for a little peppery kick.
Crème Caramel . Caramelised Pear . Hazelnut
A classic crème caramel topped with pear poached in Schnapps and a few crunchy toasted hazelnuts.
Another oldie but a goodie – our autumn Bistro version uses seasonal fruits and is served with a delectable British raspberry sorbet.
