“Bring me sunshine…..”

Ah, how that opening song from the Morcombe and Wise show resonates this week! Beautiful is not the word for Cornwall on a warm spring day. There were builders on the roof of a house in Port Navas today working in shorts, no shirts….Not something we are likely to see in February very often. Sadly, tomorrow is bringing memories of Gene Kelly and “Singing in the rain!”! Ah well…………..

We are open as usual from Thursday and I have decided to knock the One Pot Wonders on the head for this season. I will only do it if we have a special evening event, of which more later.

There will be a couple of menu changes this week. I found a really nice duck confit recipe in the Guardian last week which I will finish cooking tomorrow, so look out for ‘Duck leg confit with shallot and pomegrante sauce’ (courtesy of Mr Ottolenghi). I am also tweaking desserts this week, hoping to do a new season rhubarb fool, and something gluten free involving chocolate!

Plenty of room all weekend, so do pop down if you can…..no sun, just rain to complain about!

Future diary note: we are planning to run another famous Port Navas Yacht Club Brunch on Sunday 31st March to celebrate the change to British Summer Time. It also happens to be Mother’s Day in the UK!

Before then, Tom wants to do the PNYC Annual Quiz Night, date to be decided, which will revolve around a curry supper and teams of willing quizzers. Watch this space!

Hope to see you all soon
