Marcus Wareing at the Berkeley hosted the annual Bramley Campaign ‘Autumn in April’ lunch, 26 April, 2012, announcing the arrival of the new Bramley crop at the start of Autumn.
Top food journalists attended the lunch to help celebrate the Bramley apple, a truly iconic British product originally raised in England and only commercially grown in Britain.
This year, the Olympics and the Queen’s Jubilee has ignited national pride and interest in all things British, so there is no better time to celebrate the quality of British produce. The Bramley is unrivalled as the best apple for cooking, due to its unique ability to retain its strong, tangy taste during cooking and its ability to develop a wonderfully light and moist texture.
The bespoke menu, designed by the restaurant and signed by Marcus Wareing, included; smoked Salmon, Compressed Bramley apple, horseradish and nasturtium root, as a starter. Main course of apple braised suckling pig, Pease pudding, glazed apples and fennel and finished with an apple curd, cinnamon, crispy pastry dessert.
