In Season to Eat and Drink: April

We buy a lot of our food from Source, which for 12 years was operated as a successful café and food hall in St Nicks market in the centre of Bristol. When Covid hit they sold the lease and turned the food hall into an online shop and have been working from their new home in St Philip’s since February 2021.

Source is a sustainable, local, seasonal alternative to supermarket shopping.

They have a vast network of small producers and suppliers, built over 20 years of food retail experience in Bristol.
Their delicious and wide range is available here and delivered to your door with zero emissions!

Just coming in Wye Valley Asparagus, one of the great features of this time of year. Fabulous simply barbequed or gridled and simply served with butter and lemon.

Wine Suggestions From:

Adam – Salcheto, Obvius Bianco: An unfiltered blend of Trebbiano & Vermentino that is light and fresh with crunchy green apple and delicate nuttiness. A sulphite free choice too!

Also available Grey Mullet. A dense meaty flesh and works well with Asian spices. Oven roast whole stuffed with Lemongrass, Chilli, Lime slices and a sprinkle of Szechuan Peppcorns, wrapped in foil with a splash of white wine or Sake and bake for around 30 mins. Serve with Rice.

Wine Suggestions From:

Christy – Arndorfer, Grüner Veltliner: fresh, minerally and spritzy, notes of fresh herb, pear and citrus. Riper and rounder than some Grüners, it pairs very nicely with the herbal and aromatic spice of this dish, it is also unfiltered, unfined and hazy with low sulphites, giving a delicately lush texture.

Wine Suggestions From :

Raz – Lyrarakis, Assyrtiko, Crete, Greece. A local grape to Santorini and now Crete. It has a mineral style with hints of mirabelle , white peach and fresh citrus. Medium bodied with a clean mineral finish.
