#### Porterhouse Butcher and Grill
##### A celebration of Wagyu and sushi with Steve Ramshaw and Terry Laybourne
This extra special Wagyu beef and sushi supper club will give you the unique opportunity to sample full blood Wagyu beef reared in Northumberland by Terry Laybourne’s great friend and co-conspirator Steve Ramshaw. Around 10 years ago, Ramshaw took his organic farm on an adventure and immersed himself in the world of Wagyu.
As a nod to Japanese food culture, the evening will start with a tasting of hand rolled sushi using the very best fish from neighbouring restaurant Saltwater Fish Company. Then immerse yourself in this dining experience of top-class Wagyu beef, accompanied by a Champagne reception with exceptional wine pairing to complement every course, all for £85 a ticket.
**Arrival drink:** Champagne reception
**First course:** Porterhouse maki (spicy tuna; prawn tempura; salmon and cucumber; king crab and avocado); served with wine pairing
**Second course:** Steve Ramshaw’s Full Blood Northumbrian Wagyu; grilled medium rare and served with hand cut chips, green bean salad with anchovies and almonds; served with wine pairing
(We firmly believe that Steve’s Wagyu is best cooked medium rare rather than rare allowing the fat to start melting and move back through the meat to lubricate and flavour it. This is what gives quality Wagyu its unique silky texture)
**Third course:** Raspberry vacherin; served with wine pairing
_Please note there are now only high tables and seating available for this supper club._
