Simpsons Restaurant – Michelin Starred Breakfast

This is an amazing way to spend a Saturday morning.  Arrive at one of the best dining venues in the Midlands, then be fed incredible food and drink lovely tea and coffee with a great bunch of people that share a love of breakfasts. Happy days!

This breakfast took ages to arrange. Months of negotiations with Luke Tipping (Exec Chef) and then Nathan Eades, (Head Chef) culminated in the following exquisite menu:

Kedgeree:

Smoked Haddock Risotto, with Capers, Parsley and Quails Egg:

After yet more coffee and tea, (and the obligatory sour dough toast of course), the lucky 16 of us moved on to the second course:

Crispy Duck Egg, Chorizo and Coco Bean, Confit Tomatoes, Walnut Puree, Smoked Bacon Emulsion:

This was amazing! I love the way they do the crispy egg, its stunning!

Finally, we finished off the awesome breakfast with:

Granola:

English Apples, Yoghurt and Toasted Almond Granola

The breakfast was excellent, the service was impeccable, as expected from a Michelin Starred restaurant.

I know that I had a great time, it appears that the rest of the breakfasters enjoyed it too. A special thanks goes out to @RichardPope who decided that as it was Halloween – it was only right to dress up!

The Legend that is Richard Pope!

Finally, a MASSIVE Thanks to Luke, Nathan, Leo, Corin and the team for looking after us all so well this morning. I know that you put in an incredible amount of effort – so on behalf of everyone in attendance, thanks again.

    What a treat- the food was lovely, the service excellent, the setting luxurious without being stuffy. Thank you for organising this and thank you Simpsons. So lovely to meet people I follow on social media too.

    A tremendous experience. What a brilliant interpretation of English Breakfast..delicious, well presented and very, very satisfying. As you ‘tweeted’, a great way to spend Saturday morning.
