Dinner @ Cafe Vue at Heide

We've managed to sneak in another visit before the menu changes. Tonight, there's also a couple of specials - one of which are snails.

A serving of six snail in the shell filled with a garlic-herb butter and topped, maybe a little too densely in fine crumbs.

Textures of Heide Garden Beetroot with Goat's Curd

Even though I'm not a huge beetroot fan I thoroughly enjoyed this dish - the combination of different beetroots and different treatments made it quite interesting. The goats curd was more like an airy mousse.

Ox Tongue with du Puy lentil jelly

A bit of a suprise presentation wise - the tongue has been turned into a pate.

Poussin poached in master stock with sweet corn puree

A fabulous dish - loved the tender chicken full of flavour from the master stock, an almost obscenely delicious sweet corn puree. Adding extra crunch, the leg had also been fried to crisp the skin.

John Dory a la meuniere

Beautifully cooked fish, lovely nut brown butter with the perfect balance of herb and acid served on luxurious mashed potatoes.
