Yorkshire Life Lunch, Bull at Broughton

Had a terrific lunch courtesy of Yorkshire Life Magazine & Slow Food North Yorkshire at The Bull at Broughton near Skipton with Nigel Haworth & Craig Bancroft.   The great and good were all present, Julian from Fresh Radio, Esther From Yorkshire Life, local business people, food suppliers, Charles from Taste Tradition rare breed meats, Ben from Class One Direct fruit & veg and many more…  After welcome drinks, a sparkling white wine or a glass of Dark Horse Brewery Hetton Pale Ale, nibbles were served including cocktail sausages, Cumberland or black pudding  and mini scampi & chips in small newspaper cones.

Craig Bancroft gave a run down on the wines, a superb Austrian Grüner with the soufflé and a scrumptious Portuguese red with the pork, both supplied and available from The Wright Wine Company in Skipton.  The Portugese red – Ciconia from the Alentejo region south of Lisbon includes Touriga Nacional, Syrah & Tempranillo grapes, a wonderful juicy fruity red, great for cutting through the fat of the pork.  Whilst the Grüner already one of my favourites was perfectly matched with the light cheese soufflé, with hints of spiciness & apples.

The food was delicious, the soufflé light, the Pork moist and the the creamed potatoes with the pan jus with added black pudding very tasty indeed.  To finish the Rhubarb Trifle with powdered stewed rhubarb sprinkled & the accompanying Choc Ice with the flavour of Seville Oranges and dusted in chocolate sublime, a perfect lunch….
