A unique and different way of enjoying Brie- Fried Brie, served with Yuzu Cream and Apple Relish. Having being deep fried, the Brie has a crispy crust, complete with a touch of Sea Salt. The creaminess is greatly reduced and to serve with the refreshing Apple Relish, it further cuts through the greasiness and offers a refreshing bite. Likewise, the Pork Patty with Kizami Wasabi and Gribiche is also a surprisingly refreshing dish to enjoy. The real draw of the dish is the Kizami Wasabi, a type of Japanese fermented sauce with Wasabi. It carries a bold Wasabi flavor and works well with the meat patty here.
For something more filling, the Cannelloni Pasta with Spice Lamb Calabrese and Ricotta Cheese is a good option. The Cannelloni Pasta is expertly cooked to al-dente texture and the meat sauce is nicely cooked with good flavors. The gamey Lamb flavor may be a little strong here but that is what makes the dish delicious. Another Lamb dish for meat lovers would be the Lamb Cutlet with Hot Sauce and Cranberry Relish- thickly cut Lamb Cutlet perfectly grilled and served with home-made Hot Sauce and Cranberry Relish. It carries a sleek spiciness with a sweet note, backed by smoky fragrance.
For sweet-ending, the Bittersweet is an interesting way of serving Chocolate Mousse. The French Orange liqueur-infused Chocolate Mousse is delicious on its own but it gets monotonous after a few bites. The nutty elements, fresh Orange and Sea Salt to the rescue... offering a fresh dimension to the dessert. A fun treat to be shared.
