New a la carte menu for MC Cafe Bar and Grill

Michael Caines' Cafe Bar and Grill at Abode has had a menu overhaul

New a la carte menu for MC Cafe Bar and Grill

It's six months since Paul Maders stepped up to the head chef role at MC Cafe Bar and Grill and we're about to see exactly how he likes to do things.

The idea behind Michael Caines' cuisine at Abode is to make fine food available to all, while keeping British classics at the heart of the menu.

He's just launched his first complete menu since he took over from John House earlier this year. Before he arrived at Abode, Paul was head of pastry at Aiden Byrne's The Church Green. Prior to that he learned his trade at Waters Reach at the Golden Tulip in Salford Quays and the Peacock Room in Rochdale.

His menu is 80 per cent new, with MC favourites including the local meat and local fish sharing platters keeping their place.

A few of the new dishes that caught our eye are the Braised ox cheek and potato rosti served with roast vine tomatoes, marrow bone and water cress. And the Fillet of peppered pork served with cauliflower puree, parmesan gnocchi, pea shoots, sage foam and light cider reduction.

The dessert menu has had a complete makeover – new options include the Lemon crême profiteroles, lemon syrup and glacè lemons. And the Lavender panacotta with strawberry set in jelly.

The idea behind Michael Caines' cuisine at Abode is to make fine food available to all, while keeping British classics at the heart of the menu. So if you want a mixed grill, fish n chips or a lamb chop you can – just expect it to be a little more exciting than usual. Or if you want to be a little more adventurous and head into the realm of samphire and Imam bayildi, you're catered for too
