Spring at the RSJ Restaurant

We have put together the following programme of wine tastings and Italian Sunday lunches for the early part of 2010.

Wine Tastings with Dinner (3 courses) start 7.15pm
Tuesday 9th March    ‘Christophe Daviau , Domaine de Bablut’ £45.00

Christophe is one of the leading growers in Anjou. The Daviau family have been involved in wine in Brissac-Quince since 1546. Christophe, who worked in Australia for 18 months before  returning to Bablut, has been making wine organically for a number of years and has now embraced biodynamics.
He makes a really elegant Sauvignon as well as lovely reds from Cabernet Franc, dry whites from Chenin Blanc and delicious sweet wines, Coteaux de l’Aubance. He speaks good English (with a few Australian expressions!)  and this promises to be a really enjoyable evening.

Club discount applies to wine events. Don’t forget to mention your club discount when eating in the restaurant!

Italian Sunday Lunches at RSJ
Our Spring schedule of lunches with the passionate Italian cook, prolific food writer and personality, Ursula Ferrigno continues with the following dates at the RSJ Restaurant.

Starting at 1.00pm these events will include a glass of wine on arrival.                                                                 
Sunday 21st March  ‘Lombardy’       £30.00

Lombardy is the richest of all the regions of Italy. It accounts for a third of all Italian exports but not dominated by industrial sites – not a ‘smoky Italian monster’ (Ursula).

The basin of the River Po is an immense flat plain with green fields alternating with wheat, maize and rice. The food of this region is as fascinating as the landscape – rich cheeses and butter as well as mushrooms and truffles. Ursula’s menu this month reflects this diversity.

Minestrone alla Milanese     -  There are so many versions of this heart warming winter soup – rich with vegetables and a classical broth.Risotto alla Milanese –  This fabulous risotto was shown to Ursula by renowned chef Fulvio de Santa from the famous restaurant Peck in Milan.
Finocchi Gratinati -  Baked fennel, slowly cooked with a subtle flavour.
Polpetti di Funghi -  Mushroom and green bean soufflé.
Pane di Olivio- Olive bread with thyme.
Bonet -  Rum and chocolate custard flavoured with coffee and bitter chocolate and amaretti – light and luxurious!           
Formaggio- Cheese from Lombardy.

Sunday 25th April       ‘The magic island of Sardinia’                    £30.00
A Sardinian culinary experience –  full details to be posted on the website in due course

We have a few places – strictly limited –  for anyone who wishes to assist Ursula during the morning, making bread, pasta soup and sauces associated with these lunches.*

This cookery tuition will cost each person an additional £30.00.
