Eating out with man’s best friend

I adore a proper country pub, complete with roaring fire, home-cooked food, slate floors and a couple of dogs dozing by their master’s knee.

I know at this point, I should probably advocate real ales – my boss would as many a business trip has involved a brewery ‘drive-by’ – but it’s not something I have ever had the correct palette for.

There is something really homely and loveable about a pub that welcomes dogs. On a recent holiday in the Cotswolds, one local whose dogs had made friends with us commented that it’s one of the best ways of meeting people. His dogs always made friends for him.

One pub chain has not only welcomes four-legged friends, but has gone one step further by offering their canine visttors delicious grub. http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2010/jul/24/dogs-pubs-food What a fabulous idea! I don’t think I will go as far as taking my two cats out to my local, but if I ever have a dog then I will be seeking out gourmet experiences for both of us.

I’m afraid the Dairy Diary doesn’t offer canine recipes, but I am sure you will be delighted with the Salmon and Ginger Fishcakes from the forthcoming Good Food, Fast: Dairy Cookbook. It is a fabulous 30 minute recipe full of Thai flavours yet is quick and simple to prepare.
