Three months have passed since our last blog post on the Toovey’s café. Visitors viewing and participating in the forthcoming antique and fine art auctions on the 18th, 19th and 20th June will once again be tempted by the creations of Will Murgatroyd.
He will be serving a collection of light lunches: sandwiches, jacket potatoes and seasonal specials, including a soup and salad of the day. However, it is the cakes and sweet treats that are the biggest temptation. Firm favourites such as Eccles cakes, Ma Toovey’s rock cakes and Valerie’s lemon drizzle cake remain as staple offerings. Other treats offered in June are gluten-free flourless chocolate cake slices, Ginger Parkin Cake, Chocolate chip shortbread and coffee and walnut cake. New to the menu this month are Sour cherry cookies, apple crumble cake, banana loaf and a particularly tantalising individual lemon tart brûlée with a raspberry.
For those without a sweet tooth, Will is offering home-made asparagus, goat’s curd and chive tartlets, cheese scones and home-made herby sausage rolls as light savoury bites.
Please note: the café is only open when we are open for viewing and on our sale days.
