The Charming Squire’s hectic Winter menu

The Charming Squire has released a new menu influenced by the changing season. Here, we have shortlisted the nine wintry dishes your body is craving.

Kipfler Potato à la boulangerie
Literally translated to “potatoes from the baker,” this dish originated in France centuries ago. People living in rural France did not have ovens of their own. Instead, women would deliver a dish filled with a leg of lamb, sliced onion and potatoes to the baker on their way to church. As they prayed, the baker’s oven would cook their meal. Fortunately, the process of cooking has since sped up. The Charming Squire has taken the German kipfler potato, sliced it paper thin, layered it and oven baked it to absolute perfection.

Lamb Pithivier
This round pastry pie is filled with lamb and shaped to a dome. Served on a bed of pea puree and a scattering of golden shallot, tomato, zucchini and pumpkin. A perfectly hearty choice for Winter.

Apple Tarte Tatin
Noticing a French theme? You should be! Puffed, golden pastry smothered in pan-baked green apples and Calvados caramel. A scoop of rum and raisin ice cream is given for good measure.

Southern Fried Chicken Waffle Burger
God bless America for deciding that chicken and waffles should be together forever. And bless the clever chefs at the Squire too, because they thought to add twice cooked bacon, cheese, lettuce and chipotle mayo. Fries on the side

Haloumi Salad
Everyone knows that a salad of radish, chicory apple and candied pecans is not as good as a salad of radish, chicory apple, candied pecans and haloumi!

Crispy Skin Chicken Breast
A textural delight! Crispy skin chicken breast is served with smooth celeriac puree, crunchy proscuitto and smoked tomato, pumpkin and baby cabbages.

Seafood Chowder
This dish is a San Franciscan favourite! A classic, comforting recipe that features prawns, fish, clams and bacon. Use your sourdough wisely – i.e. to mop up the creamy sauce.

Truffled Mac & Cheese
Ah, the truffle. An aromatic fungus, fed nutrients by its host tree before being dug up from underground by pigs or dogs. This fascinating gift of nature is put to good use in The Charming Squire kitchen, adding an indulgent earthiness to the humble mac and cheese.

Dry aged Sirloin on the Bone
No iron deficiencies here! 500 grams of dry aged sirloin is cooked to your specification, with your choice of two sides and béarnaise sauce. Béarnaise sauce makes EVERYTHING better!
