wb-new-web-headers10

We’ve now launched our NEW Winter Menu and it’s packed with good old favourites, new twists on old dishes, and brand new delights.

For starters, we’ve got two new warming soups – a classic chicken & puy lentil broth served with a granary wedge, and an intriguing parsnip & apple soup served with sour dough. There’s also sriracha & honey glazed wings with sesame seeds, a pork & apple scotch egg with piccalilli mayo, and a brand new veggie starter – burrata with roasted delica pumpkin, rocket pesto & toasted pumpkin seeds.

In the mains section, we’ve got a new chicken supreme with watercress, chorizo & saffron aioli, a delicious freekah, chickpea, radish, broccoli & dukkah salad with sherry vinegar dressing, and a new twist on our half roasted chicken – now marinated with five spice and served with green beans, shallots & sesame seeds.

And we are super excited about our brand new roast chicken crispy burger with gravy mayo, crispy chicken skin and sage & onion relish. For vegetarians, there’s also a portabello mushroom burger, with mature cheddar, sweet potato hummus, gremolata & tomato relish.

If that’s not enough, our new desserts feature a baked peanut butter cheesecake with crème fraiche, plus a sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce & banana ice cream.

Book a table now, and come and give the new menu a try. We always love your feedback.

Spotlight on our Sweet Potato Fries!

Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet potato has been infiltrating the fry scene for a few years now and it’s not hard to see why – not only are they exceptionally tasty they are also surprisingly good for you.

They’re high in fibre. Fibre is what keeps your gut moving, so this can only be a good thing!

They’re a very easy and delicious way to pick up some extra vitamins. Sweet potatoes have plenty of Vitamins C, D and B6. Vitamin D in particular helps with boosting mood and energy levels – basically, eating sweet potato fries will make you happy. Bonus.

Sweet potatoes are a good source of iron, potassium and magnesium. These minerals all play a big part in your overall mental and physical health. Iron is essential for cell production and boosting your immune system, potassium aids kidney function and regulates your heart beat while magnesium helps to keep your blood itself, bones, muscles AND nerves in good condition.

Our Sweet Potato Fries are served with Chorizo (or without for vegetarians), Feta and Parsley, come in and give them a try! We don’t think you’ll regret welcoming Sweet Potato Fries into your heart (or your stomach!).

Five strange food etiquettes from around the world

King prawn and chicken noodle soup

Here at Whyte & Brown, we’re not too fussed about food etiquette. Whether you use chop sticks, a spoon or simply slurp our King prawn and free-range chicken soup, we really don’t mind. Still, it’s good to know what’s expected around the dinner table in different parts of the world.

1. Never put a fork in your mouth in Thailand
It’s considered crude to put your fork into your mouth in Thailand. Instead, use the fork to push food into your spoon and then put it your mouth.

2. Wait your turn in Korea
Don’t take a bite until the eldest male around the table has started his meal.

3. Sip soup from the side of your spoon in Britain
When eating soup in Britain, sip from the side of the spoon and always tilt the spoon away from you.

4. Get ready to leave when given a full cup of tea in Kazakh
Don’t be disappointed if your host in Kazakh pours you a half cup of tea. A full cup is a sign they want you to leave.

5. Don’t finish your plate in the Philippines
If you’re full, never finish your plate in the Philippines (or Cambodia and Egypt for that matter). A clean plate is a sign you want more.

5 cold-busting foods

 WhyteandBrown-29

It’s January and chances are you’ve got a cold (or are recovering from one).

So staying true to the saying, ‘feed a cold, starve a flu’, we’ve rounded up five of the most cold-busting ingredients to keep your body nourished this Winter.

1. Garlic. An unsung hero of nutrition, garlic contains allicin, a powerful anti-bacterial agent. Not a fan of the taste? Try garlic capsules for the same health benefits.

2. Blueberries. Blueberries are rich in vitamin C (as are citrus fruits and kiwis) and help your body fight a cold.

3. Spinach. The mother of all super foods, spinach is packed with immune-boosting antioxidants such as beta-carotene. (Get your spinach fix with our delicious baked spinach bake).

4. Ginger. Ginger has been used for thousands of years as a natural treatment for colds and flu around Asia. Its great for soothing sore throats and reducing inflammation of mucus membranes.

5. Tea. All tea—black, green, or white—contains a group of antioxidants known as catechins which help boost your immune system. Sinking into your favourite brew is also great for relieving chest congestion (as well as boosting morale!).

Give your body the nutrition it needs and keep your body fighting fit this cold season!
