Food Day Fourteen


Starter-Pan Seared Scallops and Chorizo

Super delicious, but don’t expect anything less from this combo. The portion size was small but it was very big on flavour. It came with a creamy cauliflower puree which was really nice and the scallops were perfectly cooked. The chorizo was nice although it did just taste like crispy bacon and everything was in proportion.
Main-Seafood and Mash
I’d never come across this combination before but it was surprisingly good. The scallops were tough, which was odd as they were fine in the starter, but they still had a good flavour. The remoulade sauce was very hie and went well with everything. The mashed potato was extremely tasty, the fish was very nice and the prawns were the best thing on the plate.
Dessert-Lemon Tart
This was delicious. The custard was really creamy and had a lovely lemony flavour. It came with a biscuit base which I’d never had on this dessert before but it was really buttery and it was gorgeous. the portion size was good and it was just beautiful.

This was an extremely good overall meal and is definitely up there in terms of the best so this gets a 9/10.

Food Day Two

Starter-Bay Scallop Gratin
I thought that this was so tasty. It came in a little metal dish which had holes where the scallops were and then the oil and gratin was over the top. It came with bread to dip into the oil which was nice but I would have liked a little more. The gratin was flavoured with garlic which is one of my favourite flavours so I really liked that and it went well with the scallops. Overall it was a little small and I would have like a little more bread with it but the flavour was great.

Main-Roasted Duck
The duck was a little dry but the skin was really crispy which I really like so that kind of made up for it. When mixed with the sweet berry sauce the duck became more moist and had a good flavour with the other elements of the dish. The cabbage was really soft and sweet with balsamic vinegar and I think was the star of the dish. The potato croquettes were also delicious. I would have liked some more sauce to moisten up the duck a little more. 

Dessert-Chocolate Souffle
I thought that this was very disappointing. It had a marshmallow texture which was very strange for a soufflé and it didn’t have much of a chocolate flavour at all. The only redeeming factor was the espresso sauce but other than that I was disappointed.


Overall I thought that the starter and the main were really nice but the dessert let it down so I’m going to say it was a 6/10.
