I (Ox) Heart You

Is there a better way to celebrate St. Valentines than a visit to St John?

Delicious & delightful Valentines meal with Wist at St John Bread & Wine (Spitalfields).

St John was set up by Fergus Henderson – a chef famed for his philosophy of nose to tail eating.

So first up in our meal – Smoked Sprats & Horseradish.
Beautifully smoked and beautifully fresh.

Next up – the elusive Ox Heart.
Served with a tasty celeriac coleslaw.
The heart is the only muscle that’s continually working – so should be the toughest of all meat – but the way it had been cooked meant this one was flavoursome and tender.

For our main, Wist and I shared a huge Hare and Trotter pie, with buttery cabbage.
The meat was gamey and well cooked and the pastry was insane – so rich and flaky.

Incredible Valentines Day.
