The Plough in Harborne- Restaurant Review

Follow my blog with bloglovin


Apologies for the inconsistency with when I post, but here is a small restaurant review on a pub type venue, ideal for the casual brunch, or the more sophisticated evening meal; a venue also accomodating for the children!

My friend and I attended for a spontaneous lunchtime meal and were lucky enough to catch their £9 meal deal.

For just £9 we were served a drink and this (above) elephant sized calzone! Delicious! Stuffed with succulent caramelised onions (which you should know by now, are my favourite!), salted olives and tender chicken under the crisp dough covering, my personalised calzone definitely filled me up. A slightly messy meal to consume .i.e. not first date material perhaps, but then again, who cares when it tastes so good.

Overall, a venue where you truly get your moneys worth, with a buzzing ambiance to top it off: a Harborne social hub, where everyone seems to bump into someone they know.

Stuffed Pepper Recipe Trial (Sardegna twist)

Follow my blog with bloglovin

Having just spent a week in Sardegna, Italy, I cooked this Mediterranean Stuffed Pepper Recipe, (click words for link to recipe) with a Sardegna twist (photo above).

Fregola pasta (originated from Sardegna) replaced the cous cous, which was meant to be inside the lightly fried, juicy peppers; subtle tasting, soft mozarella complimented the dish, despite bitter feta cheese having been recommended in the recipe: the olives provided the required sourness instead.

I would use this dish to accompany a refreshing side salad, or as a main dinner dish, depending on the size of peppers purchased; as you can see, the ones we bought were rather large! Two halves were perfect for a single portion.

It’s a simple, quickly prepared dish. A combination of a variety of textures, colours and tastes; a dish which is very adaptable to accomodate different tastes. Highly advise you to consume under the blissful summer sun, either on holiday or in the comfort of your own home.
