Burgers & Bordeaux

For our last Tuesday Pop Up event on 24th of June we put together a marathon 5-course burger menu, which was wonderfully paired with some of Humble Grape’s finest wines! (humblegrape.co.uk)

We started the night off with a welcome drink featuring either a bottle of our gluten free lager CELIA or an Aperitif of Domaine du Landreau Cremant de Loire 2005.



For our first course we teamed up with Riso Gallo and created a wonderfully rich and creamy saffron risotto burger, this was served with Humble Grape wine Domaine des Maréchaux Rosé 2012 which had a crisp dry finish.

Following our successful first course we served a Yellow fin tuna ceviche burger with seaweed mayo, alongside Chateau Crabitey Graves 2010 courtesy of Humble Grape.


As if that wasn’t enough we then served up a gorgeous melt in the mouth Duck confit burger with flambeed figs, Roquefort and crispy pancetta and paired amazingly with Domaine de La Martinette 2010.



Accompanying a smooth glass of Chateau Clos Bel Air Pomerol 2006 was our fourth course of buffalo burger with Chanterelle mushrooms on a potato pancake.


And finally to truly finish off the night in style we concluded with a Vozar’s special of beef burger with poached quail egg, truffle oil and wild garlic mayo paired with Château Ducru-Beaucaillou La Croix de Beaucaillou Saint-Julien 2006.


Our Burgers & Bordeaux event was the first of many more amazing Pop Up nights to come; keep your eyes peeled for information and tickets to come!

For now our executive chef Martin Vozar has been generous enough to pass on his saffron risotto burger recipe!
