artisan, located in The Biscuit Factory – the UK’s largest arts, craft and design gallery – hosts its New Season Shoots Seasonal Showcase on Wednesday, 4 May 2016.
Crafted by award-winning Head Chef, Andrew Wilkinson, the menu spotlights some of this season’s finest ingredients and flavour combinations, with a nod to spring’s budding plants and flowers.
The menu gets under way with a seasonal drink and a serving of wild garlic soup. This is followed by Little Harle spring salad with fresh goat’s curd, pistachio and cucumber; Isle of Skye langoustines with Wye Valley asparagus; and saddle of Northumbrian lamb with young garlic, garden peas and Jersey Royals. Two desserts round off the menu, including apricot sorbet with almond and buttermilk; and iced lemon curd parfait with blueberries, yoghurt and meringue.
Restaurant manager, Jaime McGuigan comments: “Our New Season Shoots showcase looks set to be one of our most popular tasting menus yet, featuring a superb selection of fresh springtime ingredients; most of which are sourced right here in the North East.”
The à la carte restaurant, which features in this year’s Good Food Guide and was shortlisted for Restaurant of the Year at the 2015 Living North Awards, hosts its Seasonal Showcase on the first Wednesday of every month.
The six or seven-course tasting menu celebrates an ingredient, a type of cooking or time of year. In the coming months, diners can enjoy menus that take inspiration from the sea, woodlands and traditional classics.
The New Season Shoots Seasonal Showcase is priced at £39.50 per person. An optional flight of wine is priced at £26.50 per person. The menu will be served throughout the evening and tables must be booked in advance.
