So. It’s cold and wet. We are all feeling the pinch on the purse strings and are at least one belt notch thicker. They call them the January Blues for a reason!
The month of January can be a drag, it’s true and there isn’t much we can do about it! Our tendency is to slouch on the sofa at any given chance and eat all of the left overs (no matter how random the concoction!) and watch films for the fourth and fifth time in our elasticated PJs!
But come hither! Chin up guys, because January is one of the best times of year for one thing at least – eating out at Steve’s Brasserie!
Steve’s Brasserie are offering some amazing deals to ease us into 2019 gently. Their menu offers up amazing dishes throughout the year, but January is the perfect time to feel fully sated whilst saving money. Before the seasonal change in February, Head Chef, Rob Dunne has promised his most delicious of dishes with some really hefty discounts.
Rob Dunne; Head Chef at Steve’s Brasserie and the New Continental Hotel:
“January is a month that we see a lot of our guests feeling like they may have slightly overindulged during the festive period! You can physically see some emerging from the other side, graving healthy, colourful food! Swearing off alcohol, fatty foods and sugar for good – or at least for the first few weeks of January! I love January. As a chef I get really excited with the wealth of lovely fresh produce, knowing that that is just what people are craving. I’m not talking kale smoothies and protein balls, but real flavoursome, quality ingredients.
Vegetables in January are still mostly roots such as potatoes, parsnips, parsley roots, chervil roots and swedes. All of the vegetables we saw donning the tables throughout December. January is when new season leeks begin to hit our suppliers in time for hearty bakes and stews; this coupled with the start of the vast citrus season from Europe and further afield, with blood oranges, Seville oranges and bergamot all starting to appear.”
The simple tones between the marriage of the two are what really sums up January for me; roasted root vegetables with a citrus vinaigrette spell out January in both taste and aroma.
In December, Steve’s Brasserie will be introducing FIVE amazing offers for dinners to use throughout January. Watch their Facebook Page for news and announcements!
