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 Nine

Starter-Tomato Seafood Risotto
This was beautiful. The seafood was calamari, scallops, mussels and prawns and everything was cooked to perfection. The portion size was good and risotto was an excellent texture. The only thing that would have made it perfect would have been a more tomato flavour.
Main-Coq Au Vin
This dish was really nice. It was a little large but I’d rather it be too big than too small. The chicken was cooked beautifully and was in a very flavourful sauce. The spinach was nice but I wasn’t a fan of the grilled polenta as I thought the texture was wet and strange and there wasn’t much flavour coming from it.
Dessert-Creama Catalana
It came just like a creme brûlée which I am usually a huge fan of but I didn’t eat the sugar on the top as it was very greasy. The texture was good and there was a nice orange flavour. It was very large and it came with a chocolate biscotti which was nice but I would have preferred it to have had more of a chocolate flavour.
This was a nice meal but it wasn’t one of the best so I think it was a 9/10.
