with an array of British-inspired dishes.
Now less talk by me and more eating with our eyes.
Let us commence:
Hanging bottles of flowers dangling from the ceiling, check.
three cheese & parsnip cigar
scotch duck egg
with house-made pork sausage and Orto's piccalilli
(larger than life soft-boiled duck egg)
with smoked chilli-lime salsa and char grilled sourdough
(great choice by K as I had zero expectations re: mackerel.
after initial tastings, couldn't get enough of it!)
with a smoked bone marrow aioli
(best gourmet take on wedges, ever.)
with broad beans, snow pea shoots and mint jelly
(Personal highlight of the night!
an unconventional twist to the traditional beef wellington.
blast of textures from mint jelly sweet freshness, mutton savoury tenderness,
potato rosti prism layeredness & other randomness. LOVE!)
salty chocolate ganache
with peanut butter ice and fresh celery
(always right, never left with desire, when it comes to peanut butter & chocolate.
dense dark chocolate ganache decorated by
celery swirls & chucks of peanut butter ice
though the pastry was a bit too thick for my liking)
Another successful night with my culinary soulmate!
