The second course was described as 18 Degree poached full blood waghu oyster blade, tarragon soubise, celeriac boulangerie served with Tenuta de Areno Reserva Chianti Classico 2008. This was another elegant mouthful. We could all have done with twice as much
This was followed by100 Degree full blood waghu cheek dumpling, lobster XO sauce crisp garlic served with Heargreaves Hefeurizen Wheat Ale. Two little dumplings filled with a meat which was not distinguishable as waghu. The pastry was a little claggy.
The last main course, if you could call it that was 350 Degrees F2 waghu porterhouse steak, mushrooms in red wine, potato puree. Longview Devils Elbow cab/sav 2009 came with the steak.
The final course, 15 degrees, was hay infused waghu milk ice cream with candied F1 rump and ration feed. Waghu suet pudding. This was served with Chateau Suduiraut Les Lions 2010.
This was a very inventive meal with more than enough interesting wine, but suffered from a serious lack of volume. We stopped off at KFC on the way home. I am becoming wary of these special dinners and would have been very disappointed if I had paid the full price.
Score: somewhere between 13.5 and 15!
