Eating at Yalbury Cottage
Jamie strongly believes in bringing cooking back to its purest form; choosing only the finest raw ingredients from the best suppliers in the county.
As Jamie says, "I produce creative but classical French menus for Yalbury Cottage, using only the best seasonal British fish, meat, vegetables and dairy products available locally, so a lot of emphasis is made on visiting suppliers in the area, searching for the best produce".
