A PUB in Whittle-Le-Woods is calling for local people to share their best family recipe to be in with the chance of having their dish added to the pub’s menu later this year.

The Malthouse Farm Chef & Brewer pub restaurant on Moss Lane is searching for a delicious, home-cooked recipe to be added to its menu, with the winner also bagging themselves £500.

The chosen dish will have to be a family favourite that always gets everyone around the dinner table, whether it’s a warming sticky toffee pudding or a hearty beef stew, a secret ingredient or a recipe that has been handed down through generations.

Sharon Young, general manager at the Malthouse Farm, said: “Meal times are all about sharing special family moments, so what better way to find a wholesome dish for our menu than to turn to our guests for their favourite family recipes?

“From classic flavour combinations to secret cookery tricks, we can’t wait to find a dish for our new menu, inspired by our guests’ love of cooking. Anyone with a fantastic family recipe up their sleeve should get in touch to tell us why their dish deserves to be added to our menu.

“We’re looking forward to seeing what Whittle-Le-Woods locals can bring to the dinner table!”

To be in with a chance of having your dish featured on the Chef & Brewer menu, Whittle-Le-Woods locals simply need to visit the Chef & Brewer website www.chefandbrewer.com/seasonedwithlove explaining details of their best family recipe and why it’s special to them before Monday 26 February 2018.

The chosen winner will need to be available in May to create their family recipe at Chef & Brewer’s development kitchen in Burton-on-Trent.
