Bonfire Night

A neat way to spend the 5th of November... with your beautiful wife at the annual Guy Fawkes Dinner at a favorite restaurant of ours.

Cool menu:

Scotch  Egg with Hot Sauce
Ploughman's Platter

Chicken, Bacon & Mushroom Pie
Sunday Roast with Bubble & Squeak

Sticky Toffee Pudding
Pear Trifle 

They also do a Halloween event each Halloween that we'll never be able to attend, nor would be brave enough to try:

Grilled Jamison lamb kidney skewer, oregano, preserved lemon, and roasted garlic dressing

Cricket "fried" rice

Beef heart tartare, griggstown eggyolk, sea salt, ketchup chips

Crisp veal brains, celery root puree, celery leaf and heirloom apple, brown butter-cider vinaigrette

Braised lengua, mole verde, red onion, queso fresco, radish with home made huitlacoche tortillas

Uni carbonara, squid ink spaghetti, pancetta, onions, bottarga

Happy Anniversary!
Neat day to have it.

I'll burn an effigy in your honor.

That Halloween menu sounds gross but I bet it is oh so delicious.

Rot said...

agreed. if there's one place I'd try any of those things, it's this place. Never had anything I didn't love.

Nice atmosphere too.

Sara said...

I love it!:)

It's also a Beaver Moon tonight, so there's that. LOL.

Happy Anniversary Willow Cove!

Halloween Menu:
Poached Beaver Tail with Wood Sprinkles

Sara said...

See? Fits perfectly.

Rot said...

I bet proper etiquette dictates that beaver tail is to be eaten with two hands, like a chicken leg.

And I'm picturing it tasting/looking like a heavy thick brown waffle.

Ok, I have to ask...what and where is this restaraunt!??!? I would make that Halloween menu a part of a special trip, sounds verrrry intriguing.

Amy said...

Sounds incredible..please post some shots of your fire, assuming you put one on!

I marked the day by wearing my Guy Fawkes mask all day around town. With my long black coat and matching fedora, I looked V from "V for Vendetta". People seemed to get a huge kick out of it. I even had a bunch of school kids jumping up and down and screaming "V"! V!" at me when I walked by. Good times.

Rot said...

a far drive for us, but it was worth's the Yardley Inn in Yardley, PA.
