More than happy for you to enlighten me of any restaurants locally that do that guys. Please say some names so I can check them out. The only one I know is the fish restaurant in Horning that don't have a menu they cook what's caught that day but that's hardly a tapas bar is it? We work in commercial kitchens all over the UK including The Hilton The Dorchester & D&D restaurants as well as small bespoke bistros. I design fire systems for these kitchen so have 100's of drawings of kitchens on my PC They all have large deep freezers. I wonder what they keep in them then guys?

I any case whats the problem with frozen?

From the daily mail

Fresh is not always best: A new study has found that frozen fruit and vegetables often contain more nutrients

Frozen fruit and vegetables can be healthier, with higher levels of vitamins and cancer fighting antioxidants, than leafy ‘fresh’ produce.

Two independent studies found more beneficial nutrients in everything from frozen broccoli florets and carrots to blueberries.

In two out of three cases frozen fruit and vegetables scored better on antioxidant-type compounds – including Vitamin C, polyphenols, anthocyanins, lutein and beta-carotene.

Consumption of these anti-oxidant compounds is considered beneficial in preventing cancer and supporting the working of the body, brain, skin and eyes.

I would guess Hotel Wroxham, Delias, Crooked Barn Oulton, The Swan Ingham, East Hills Bistro Brundall Commodore Oulton, Graze at Beccles and Waterside at Brammerton.

That's just a few off the top of my head. Some will only use fresh product some may use the odd frozen ingrediant.

As for deep freezers in kitchens, are you sure they are not industrial fridges or blast coolers.

It's also to do with the quality of the meal and the skill that has gone into preparing it - i.e. is there a chef in the kitchen that has prepared the dish from separate ingredients (some of which may have been frozen) or has someone just warmed up something that was pre-prepared somewhere else and either frozen or vacuum packed.

Of course there's a huge range in between these two extremes but generally I try to avoid places with long menus.  It's always disappointing to pay for a meal that you feel you could have cooked better yourself  Wink !

I do get your drift guys its just you cant always use that as a yardstick. Pedros turns over a lot of food so its more than possible that they are able to produce a full menu using fresh ingredients. Having a small menu is no guarantee that the food is fresh. A lot of places just don't have the staff to produce the number of different dishes that others do. Pedros sometimes has 4 people cooking at the same time, not bad for a small place. The new one at Horning will be no different from the one at Acle so if you liked it there you will like it at Horning. If you haven't been to Acle then how can anyone comment on the freshness of the food. We love it

As for The Swan at Ingham well if you want to pay £55 per head then you would expect something special. Pedros tapas are from £6  yer pays yer money yer takes yer cloice

My local Morrisons has a large fresh fish counter with all the produce attractively laid out. The tuna fish on that counter is far more expensive than the tuna fish in the frozen section as you would expect. Only problem for me is the notice at the fresh fish counter that states that the fish may have previously been frozen, but is still suitable for freezing. Why should I pay more for fresh (possibly previously frozen tuna) than I can pay in the freezer aisle?  Confused In addition I have noticed that tuna they cut and put in packaging on the chilled counter always has that days use by date, whereas two or three years ago it would have 3-4 days use by date? So unless I'm intending to use the tuna that night, I might as well buy cheaper from the frozen aisle and save money, or buy frozen at Aldi or Lidl and save even more money.

Just because The BA make a request, don't automatically assume they have the powers to make such requests!! Keeping a careful eye on an Authority which is making it's own rules.
