Field to plate cooking in a farmhouse

John Duffin has food in his DNA: after working up an impressive CV in some of London’s stellar kitchens, he returned to his roots by opening his own restaurant on the family farm where he grew up. Bare beams and brick walls, wooden floors and tables all add up to a rustic feel, but think again if you’re expecting food in a similar vein. Sure, Duffin is committed to a ‘farm to plate’ philosophy – much of the produce comes from his family’s land, after all – but the cooking is ambitious, precise and full of contemporary verve. Marinated heritage tomatoes bursting with flavour are nimbly partnered with almond gazpacho and fresh mint, while main-course pork belly comes with the balanced flavours of sweetcorn purée, hen of the woods mushrooms and gremolata. A clever dessert of meringue encasing yuzu curd alongside elderflower sorbet and white chocolate rounds things off nicely.
