Insomnia

The local supermarket

The BFM and Mrs were walking through Belfast and fancied a quick snack. Now in Northern Ireland a curry chip is the classic snack. So we went to Centra on Wellington Place and were amazed by the range they stocked.

The food/deli section was at the back so we went there. The selection was hot traditional foods eg curry chips for £1.99, to a burrito bar and finally a deli section.

I would defo go back!!

I was duly met by Simon who is the day to day school chef as well as a plethora of other titles, and to get us in the Christmas spirit there was real mulled wine and pretend mulled wine.

Will come onto the good food in a moment but just wanted to highlight the fact that almost all produce is locally made eg Broighter Rapeseed oil, Burren Balsamic, Keen Almond butter and Maldron Sea Salt,as well as fish,meat and vegetables .

For starters there was beetroot cured salmon with radish and capers followed by Turkey Saltimbocca and a soup made from wintry chestnuts,pancetta and chives.

Simon showed how easy the dishes are to prepare, in advance and that they cook vey quick and taste amazing. Couple of points of note are that the cookers are induction and oil used is Rapeseed. Also did you know gravlax is the Scandinavian way of curing using salt,sugar,pine needles and burying them!!!

Mr and Mrs BFM are looking forward to a masterclass in the new year.
