New Year – New You

New Year – New You

 We all know how easy it is to start the year with a few good intentions and then once we get back to work and life gets hectic the first thing that goes out of the window is the diet.


Relish is now offering a Salad Box to take away, at £3 the same as a sandwich.

Baby salad leaves with tomato & cucumber and a little light french dressing, topped up with your choice of:

Two slices of ham or beef
Meat Quiche
Veggie Quiche
Sausage roll
Or for an extra £1
Scotch Egg
Beef Pasty
Game Pie

We now also offer a salad bar of homemade salads, all priced at £1.20 / 100g.  Salads such as Yorkshire Broccoli Salad, Greek Salad, Beetroot & Blood Orange, Cucumber and chilli.  These are made fresh each morning and will vary daily depending on what supplies we are offered.


To try and beat these cold harsh days we are now also offering something hot.

A daily special of either: Lasagne, Stew & Dumplings, Fish Pie, Cottage pie, Macaroni Cheese and many more will be on offer; as a cold portion to take home for supper or as a hot portion to take back to the office for lunch.

December Newsletter

Finally I can shout about it.  Christmas is here! and Relish is going all out for it!  Figgy Puddings, fruit cakes, pâtés and pickles.  I have spent the last six months scouring the country, trawling the wholesalers and badgering suppliers for the best of ingredients, the newest ideas and the tastiest of treats, but still with a huge nod for Yorkshire. I hope you will find lots of new things and everything you need for your culinary moments too.  We have just become stockists of the totally delicious Kings Ginger which is usually only available from Berry Bros in London. I was introduced to this tipple years ago at a shoot lunch and it has become a staple in our household each winter.  I’m not the biggest fan of liqueurs but this one tips the scales as it really warms you up after a cold wet mornings beating and is a good digestife after dinner.

Here at Relish the kitchen is rarely empty, the same infectious, giddy attitude has washed over all of us and most days someone has a new idea, has found a new recipe or wants to try a twist on an old favourite.  Supper Clubs have been booked up for weeks. Novembers’ Game Nights challenged me as a cook to come up with something different for everyone to eat; rather like with Asparagus, the game season seems to be over far too quickly.  At the moment I am breasting pheasants, plucking partridge and boning out duck most nights.  Our canapé list gets a major makeover at this time of year as Nicki & I spend a lot of time trying to come up with new and interesting twists on some old favourites. For 2013 we have tried to take away the pastry from as many as we can, with the use of Chinese soup spoons and shot glasses, we try to pack a punch in two mouthfuls.

And just to add to the pressure because we didn’t think that Christmas was enough we have just changed the Sunday Brunch Menu.  It has become a lot more “Bistro-like” and is being well received.  We shall be continuing to open on Sundays in January although we shall be closing an hour earlier at 3pm.  Our warm greetings and smiley faces, fully laden deli counter and great coffee will still be around.

This is a great time of year to be a cook with such bountiful produce around.  Brussels sprouts, beetroot, parsnips, kale, apples, figs, pomegranate, clementines and cranberries; really there is no excuse not to be eating at least 5 different fresh fruit and veg each day.  And for anyone still not convinced that sprouts are a good thing, try the recipe below, it really will change your mind forever!  Thanks to Nigel & Adams Farm programme.

Sprouts, bacon and almonds

This is a great recipe to convince any doubters that sprouts are worth it – halve them and fry in buttery bacon with toasted almonds.


Preparation method

  1. Cut the bacon into pieces the shape of a postage stamp.
  2. Melt the butter over a moderate heat in a large frying pan.

Cook the bacon until it starts to crisp.

  1. Add the sliced sprouts to the bacon and cook for six minutes so that the cut edge starts to brown
  2. Add the almonds to the pan toast for a further two minutes. Serve.
