Our Head Chef’s Favourite Autumnal Dish

With Autumn upon us, Head Chef at The Boat House Bistro, Bewl Water, Andre Woodward shares his favourite Autumnal dish on the menu…

“At The Boat House Bistro we are lucky enough to be close to many local suppliers in the Garden of England! We change our menu on a weekly basis so that our customers can always have the freshest and most seasonal dishes. Autumn is a great time of year as we work with lots of rich and warming flavours. My favourite dish is the Guinea fowl with sweetcorn and nduja sausage succotash!

Guinea fowl makes a great alternative to chicken for a warming dinner on an Autumn night. It has a lovely flavour that is slightly gamey but very subtle (much less so than pheasant or grouse). It can be magnificent when cooked simply or when combined with more robust flavours like nduja sausage (a very spicy soft Italian sausage similar to chorizo) We serve it with a sweetcorn succotash which is a silky and creamy sauce packed with flavour It’s a firm favourite on The Boat House Bistro menu this Autumn. It is also high in protein, low in cholesterol and a good source of vitamin B6 which is always good when the days start getting darker!”
