England in July is glory beyond compare. The hills roll endlessly in every manner of green. Hedgerow bursts at the seams. In the city, trendy cafes spill out onto cobbled streets and laughter fills the air.
That is if mother nature cooperates; which fickle though she can often be, usually allows for the sun to rein free and bright. (Most of the time.)
Our July menu is reflective of this feeling of countryside exuberance and joy. And of course with a nod to the past, if not direct adaptations of Tudor recipies long forgotten but soon to be your new very favorite friends. -Matt Miller
