We asked Mark & Marcin, our Flint Barns chefs, their ingredient of the month for February…
Why rhubarb? Forced New Seasons Rhubarb is just coming into season and is a real treat at this time of the year. It is the first British fruit of the year and is tender with a beautiful pink colour and delicate flavour.

Best cooking tip? Cook with subtle flavours such as clementine zest and a hint of ginger.
Favourite dish you use it in? Poached rhubarb in English Sparkling Wine with Clementine Zest and a hint of ginger. Serve it with homemade stem ginger ice cream.
What wine would you recommend with this dish? A glass of Tokaj (Hungarian sweet wine).
