At BB we believe in mindful eating. We think about food – all the time. What to eat, when to eat it, where it comes from, how to cook it, how to be more adventurous. And we talk about it too. From the Grande Fromage down, we know food, and we know you know food too. So join us chez nous, where the conversation starts around the table….

Keeping our voice heard on social media throughout these times is really important to us, as we feel we have such a positive message to share, and we want to remind you… read more

We change our menus seasonally as we believe that working with the seasons ensures that our menus use the freshest, best… read more
From our spring menu which should have launched today, we bring you this delicious recipe for chocolate fondant. Full of chocolatey, oozy goodness, these fondants are best served warm with a drizzle of cream or a scoop of ice cream and some fresh berries. When we re-open we will be serving them with zesty orange cream, spiced cardamon sauce and a zingy ginger confit. Enjoy! PS. Our recipe calls for one egg yolk but don’t discard the white – this… read more
