dinner at attica

Last night Jeff and I spent a wonderful evening partaking of the Chef's Table tasting menu at Attica - my Menu for Hope prize. We ate here last year after reading Tomato's glowing recommendation in August and loved it, so we were thrilled to have won.

Look (and weep) at last night's feast :

A zingy starter of pickled melons with jamon ...


Next, (my favourite) - almond and pea cream, sorrel and roast jellied chicken with crispy skin...


followed by cauliflower and goat's cheese ...

Next - poached free-range pork with housemade morcilla (black pudding made in the Spanish style), apple glazed shallots and broccolini...


and lastly, chocolate cake with cumquat jelly, coffee and preserved lemon ice cream and passionfruit pearls ...

It was a fantastic meal, and our charming host Cam made us feel very special. Many thanks Attica and Tomato!

Oooh...what a marvellous meal. I too put my name down for the Attica prize in the Menu For Hope, but am glad it went to an appreciative fellow food blogger.

How good does that dessert look?

Glad you enjoyed it despite the mix up.

I was actually the winner.

Well.. in a parallel universe ;)

Looks like a taste sensation! Almond and pea cream sounds like a delicious combo.

Sorry you all couldn't have won as well! As well as our fab food, Cam chose a matching wine to go with each course which I actually forgot to post about.
