Dinner @ Interlude

While flicking through this site I suddenly realised, much to my shock, that we hadn't been to Interlude since July! It was a situation that needed to be immediately redressed and after a quick call dinner had been booked.


As it's a bit of the cool side tonight, we decide to start with a good Sherry to warm us up and get us into the mood for tonights degustation. There's a good mix of old favourites with some new dishes to try.

Alphabet Soup
2005 Bannockburn Saigné Rosé, Geelong

It's always surprising just how much flavour resides in that broth.

Snail Trail, Mushroom, Parsley, Garlic
2007 Müller Thurgau Franz Haas

Perfect mouthfuls of flavour.

Foie Belle Hélène
2005 Marcel Deiss Pinto Blanc "Bergheim"

This is a new dish - a play on "belle hélène". It may look like the criss-cross skin of duck but that is actually all foie gras. A wonderful combination of crisp and soft.

Blue eye cooked in Roast Chicken Jelly with Trimmings
2005 Georg Breuer Spätburgunder

We had something similiar at the Truffle lunch and even without truffles it's still a terrific dish

Duck, Bacon, Foie Scramble, Short Stack
2006 Luis Pato Casta Baga

While the previous dish was mild and gentle, this one comes at you. Upfront and bold, the flavours are distinct yet striking.

Venison, Red Cabbage, Caraway Stuffling, Pear
2005 Gaja Ca 'Marcanda Promis'

The venison deserves a close up!

Rye, Apricot, Caraway
2006 Charles Hourse Juranco

The first of the dessert courses, this is on the sweet side of savoury.

Cherries, Milk, Olive Oil
NV Renardat Fache Bugey Ceredon

Served on the corner of the plate it's an utterly delightful voyage of flavour and texture.

Cardamon, Quinoa, Coconut, Pedro Ximénez
NV Campbells Tokay

Petit Fours
a lovely way to finish
