CHRISTMAS AT DODDINGTON
Bauble Barn, Christmas Trees, Hall decorated for Christmas & much more

REcipes

We believe that great food starts with great ingredients. We are lucky to have the very best on our doorstep; freshly picked produce from our Kitchen Garden, Lincoln Red beef from our parkland and game from the estate.

Wet Garlic

Wet garlic (sometimes known as green garlic) is picked before full maturity and eaten fresh to enjoy a tender burst of vibrant flavour without the full hit of garlic. It’s somewhere between the freshness of spring onions and the kick of dried garlic. It can be used in its entirety, stem and all.

Sprouting broccoli

Claire loves sprouting broccoli! As a child, Claire’s family was self-sufficient in veg and it was always the first green thing in the spring after a winter of salads of grated carrot, cabbage and celeriac.

Sprouting broccoli always seems to coincide with the chickens laying lots of eggs and makes a great combination.

Blood Orange Roasted Chicken

Blood oranges have arrived in our Farm Shop. The blood orange is a variety of orange (Citrus × sinensis) with crimson, almost blood-coloured flesh. Along with their lovely red colour, blood oranges tend to have a noticeable and delicious raspberry edge to their flavour.

Courgette Recipes

The delicately flavoured courgette is currently taking centre stage in Claire’s kitchen. Baba Ganoush is an ideal recipe when courgettes are plentiful and large. It is delicious and one of Claire’s absolute favourites!

Claire also has a tasty recipe for courgette, garlic and saffron pasta.

Lettuce & Lovage Soup

This super simple and nutritious soup was one of Claire’s mother’s favourites!

It’s not fussy, it’s not fancy and it’s not hard to make. If you’re looking for an easy, healthy way to eat more greens and boost your immune system then this is the perfect soup for you.

Handmade wholemeal spelt pasta and broccoli

Spelt is an ancient grain, widely recognised for its many health benefits. High in protein, vitamins, fibre and like other whole grains, a great addition to your diet.

Claire’s homemade wholemeal spelt pasta teamed with fresh sprouting broccoli is a delicious and super nutritious meal for all the family.

Spring Green Soup

This soup is super simple and nutritious. It’s not fussy, it’s not fancy and it’s not hard to make. If you’re looking for an easy, healthy way to eat more greens and boost your immune system then this is the perfect soup for you. It’s also a great way to use up any green leftovers.

BBQ Cauliflower Shawarma Flatbread

This is a slow cooked smoky cauliflower dish perfect for a winter supper or a light lunch, accompanied with a rich dressing inspired by Middle Eastern flavours whilst incorporating Estate grown produce. Served on a warm Welbeck Estate flatbread this is a Doddington favourite.

Seville Orange Recipes

Seville oranges have arrived in our Farm Shop. To the Tudors, these bitter globes were ‘golden apples’, a luxury to brighten up the winter.

Sevilles are traditionally used to make marmalade and have a very short season so get that pan bubbling away soon. As an alternative they can be used to make an orange liqueur, there is just a bit of a wait before you can drink it!

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

If you’re planning on having some pumpkin-carving fun, don’t let those pumpkin innards go to waste!
