MAY 2022

Sam Ashton Booth creates an aesthetic feast for the senses this month. This is a vibrant, fresh and original dish, bursting with texture and fragrance. You will poach baby beets in beetroot juice, reducing this sweet stock to a deep glaze with port, thyme and lemon juice. Golden beetroot will roast until even more golden, as you gently whip goat's cheese into a rich savoury mousse. A fragrant, herbal chamomile oil will infuse, while a rye bread crumb and camomile powder award seasoning and bite. The sweetest and most fragrant of summer strawberries is the Gariguette, and with snippets of tarragon and a pinch of black pepper, are the final flourish on this beautiful culinary canvas

Sam will tell you about his creation, below:

**Disco Rarities**

Quite possibly one of the most instantly recognisable genres in the history of music, Disco is a demographic-busting movement whose influence is still seismic to this day.

Walk into the right neon-lit bar in any city in the world on a Saturday night and the chances are you’ll be greeted by the sight of DJ elbow deep in a crate of outlandishly adjourned vinyl as a heady soundtrack of Donna Summer, Chic, Rick James et al. gets your head involuntarily nodding along.

Hit the real jackpot, however, and your selector might eschew the Sister Sledge and go deeper...
