Check out some great recipes for you to try at home below & enjoy…

Recipes from Careys Manor Hotel

Let’s start with the perfect choice for breakfast, brunch, lunch or quick dinner, the Croque Monsieur, from Careys Manor’s French restaurant, Le Blaireau. Or create the best meal to make you feel cosy this cold season with Alistair’s Roast Squash, Hake and Rainbow Chard! Wash it all down with a special autumn cocktail from Careys Manor called “Annetta”, which involves passionfruit, pineapple, lime, rosemary and herb vodka!


Recipes from The Pig

The Pig in Brockenhurst are very well known for their delicious food, so we are very lucky that they have shared some of their popular recipes with us. For those easy evenings in front of the fire, with a drink in hand, and perhaps on a fun video call with friends and family, is their mouthwatering Flatbreads with Cheesy Wild Garlic Pesto. Top dinner off with one of the best autumn and winter desserts, Apple and Blackberry Crumble or spice up your working from home lunches and try making their Tomato and Chilli Jam!


Recipes from Lime Wood

With hearty, rich flavours, Hartnett Holder & Co’s Duck Ragu Bolognese will be a firm favourite in your household this winter! Or for something a little lighter, how about their Cookery School’s Curry King Prawns recipe? For an easy, yet delicious, try creating their Salted Caramel Cheesecake, which is both vegan and gluten-free, it’ll be hard not to go back for seconds straight away!


Recipes from Forest Park Hotel

Forest Park Hotel have added some brilliant, easy to follow recipe videos with Chef Mateusz on Facebook. Warm up your household with one of their most popular dishes, Sweet Potato and Chickpea Curry – which is also vegan! Make something that may be completely out of our comfort zone with Mackerel Croquettes, great for a starter, lunchtime snack or served with chips and vegetables! Or feel even more homely with a freshly baked ciabatta… made by you! This video recipe makes 2 massive ciabattas, meaning it can be used for breakfast, lunch and dinner over a good couple of days.


Recipes from Balmer Lawn Hotel

Keep the adults in your household happy and toasty with Balmer Lawn’s Gin Hot Toddy recipe! Follow their Facebook Video direct from their brand new dining and bar area, The Lodge, and try and make this tasty cocktail from home.
