Yesterday hubby took me out for my belated birthday meal. We went to a fantastic pub/restaurant that is staggering distance from the house. It’s not the cheapest place, but the food is superb and we save it for special occasions.
Wild mushroom risotto
Spinach & ricotta tortellini in a garlic, white wine and cream sauce
Summer pudding served with clotted cream
I did enjoy my choice, but wish I had chosen the vegetable wellington as my main. Both the risotto and tortellini were quite heavy and creamy.
Crispy belly pork on a bed of celeriac mash with a honey & apple sauce
Lemon & lime tart
I had a taste of the quail and was surprised. I was expecting more of a gamey taste, but to me it tasted of strong chicken.
