New Cook’s at The Ropewalk Pudding Club evening

By janetuplin |

What better way of banishing any lingering thoughts of the Christmas Pudding than by enjoying a night at Cook’s at The Ropewalk Pudding Club.

Following three sell-out evenings in Barton upon Humber since it was launched last year, the Pudding Club returns on January 21 with some more tempting puds.

Liz Bennet of The Ropewalk is delighted how this new venture between the Maltkiln Road venue and Cooks Catering of New Holland has been received by the public.

“Tickets for every Pudding Club evening have sold out well before the night and we have even had to have a reserve list for those who left it too late,” she said.

“And it looks as if the 2012 evenings are going to be as successful.  There are only a handful of tickets left for the January one and already we are having enquiries for the one on March 16,” Liz went on.

 

As always the 2012 Pudding Clubs will follow the same format – a choice of a light first course which in January is Lentil and Cumin Caked with Minty Raita, Salmon Pattie with Tartar Sauce and Salad Leaves or Cajun Spiced Chicken with Herb Cous-Cous.

 

The January puddings reflect the winter months with warming steamed Dark Chocolate Pudding with Egg Custard Sauce and Apple Charlotte and Nutmeg Cream on offer as well as

Cardamom and Rose Ice-cream and  Orange and Vanilla Panna Cotta with Sugar Biscuits.

Fiona Sciolti Chocolates with coffee or tea bring the evening to a close.

In March the first course will be Twice Baked Cheese Soufflé with Spinach and Nutmeg,

Pate of Smoked Trout with Melba Toast and Salad Leaves or Farmhouse Terrine of Pork, Bacon and Liver with Homemade Chutney followed by White Chocolate and Whisky Bread and Butter Pudding with Egg Custard Sauce, St Emilion Chocolate and Macaroon Mousse,

Warm Banana Tarte Tatin Vanilla Pod Ice-cream and Crème Caramel and Fresh Fruits

“The cost of £20 per person remains the same as last year and I’m sure that anyone who has been before will testify that it is value for money – fantastic puddings served in a brilliant atmosphere,” Liz continued.

The Bare Level Plain – East Riding Artists

The Landscapes of South Riding
The Bare Level Plain is an exhibition of original artworks with the 1936 novel South Riding by Winifred Holtby, and in particular those areas of the East Riding described in the novel, as the exhibition’s focus and theme. This is an exploration through art of the places about which this extremely popular novelist wrote. 

. . . The wide Dutch landscape, haunted by larks and seabirds, roofed by immense pavilions of windy cloud; the miles of brownish-purple shining mud, pocked and hummocked by water and fringed by heath-like herbs; the indented banks where the high tides sucked and gurgled; the great ships gliding up to Kingsport, seen from low lying windows as though they moved across the fields; the brave infrequent flowers, the reluctant springs, the loneliness, the silence, the slow inevitable rhythm of the tides . . .

Avenue of Dreams

‘Avenue of Dreams’ is a collection of paintings and prints by Sheffield based/Irish born artist Alex McArthur. Inspired by the natural world her practice is influenced by long established landscape traditions.

As a starting point for her work Alex uses photographs taken on her travels to stir memories and emotions that inform the processes she uses. Paint is often poured on canvas In layers to represent a passing sky and the monotype printing technique used throws up surprises in colour, form and texture. The use of photography results in a spontaneous and intuitive process.

Helen Martino

Helen Martino would describe her work as being ‘sometimes serious and sometimes playful’. For many years Helen worked as a functional potter, making batches of domestic pots on a wheel. Now she sees herself as more of a maker in clay, hand building each piece individually by using soft and flexible sheets of clay. These sheets of clay are freely cut, curved and sometimes twisted, this is how Helen is able to create different perspectives and distortion within her work. The surface is painted with slip, underglaze pigment and resists. Depending on the piece silver and gold lustre may also be incorporated.

Helen is fascinated by body language and how this can be communicated. She observes Mogul and Persian miniatures and admires how they are able to tell a story within one image. These artworks often show a significant event within the life span of a person or family. Helen’s sculptures are also intimate like the miniature and show a single event that can be applied to the past, future and present, allowing the viewer to determine the story of each artwork.

Working in Cambridge, Helen exhibits widely across the UK and is the founder member of Cambridge Open Studios. She will be exhibiting in the Box Gallery in November.
