4 three-course menus for June

Hail in the start of summer with these 4 three-course menus for June. From brilliant barbecues to perfect picnics, we’re welcoming all forms of alfresco dining with open arms.

4 three-course menus for June

The alfresco menu

Alfresco eating: the act of basking in the sunshine – preferably with something iced in hand – while gorging on summery fare. You can’t beat it. Nibble on crispy squid with an Aperol spritz, plonk this whole-roast plaice on the table cooked in an anchovy and sage butter and round off the meal with none other than our Negroni cheesecake. We’re coming round to yours for lunch…

The barbecue banquet

Lay out plenty of warm flatbreads ready to dunk in this gooey baked feta for starters. Finish of a slow-cooked beef brisket on the barbie to impart extra smoky flavour. And because you’ll probably want something light and refreshing after all of that, how about these blueberry cheesecake ice lollies? They’re definitely refreshing! Light on the other hand…

The vegetarian barbecue banquet

Yes, meat-free barbecues ARE a thing and we’re here to prove it. You can’t beat charred corn on the cob drizzled in lashings of melted butter. Fill brioche buns with marinated sweet potatoes, halloumi and smashed avocado in our best ever veggie burgers. And for an easy dessert you can whip out when the Aperol’s start to kick in, try this eton mess traybake.

The perfect picnic 

Picnic fare needs to be able to travel well and these three picks are all robust enough to last in your cooler bag! Sharing is caring with our feta and herb bread, serve up slices of our chicken, ham, chorizo and herb raised pie (we’ve hot a handy step-by-step guide too) and it wouldn’t be a picnic without this stunning Pimm’s bundt cake. Tip: at the picnic, top the cake with the fruit and the reserved mint.
