Yesterday netted me two excellent meals in a row: a great welcome back to London. Lunch was at the Royal Court Theatre Cafe where we lucked into three delightful dishes, for me a fabulous warm salad of Jerusalem artichokes, mushrooms and baby spinach, with a Parmesan crisp to nibble on…
and reportedly delicious others: a pumpkin and goat’s cheese tart crusted with almonds; and a Lancashire hotpot in its own little basin:
We weakened when faced with the dessert menu, and luckily so: the Sticky Toffee Pudding was ethereal
while the almond and fig tart was exquisite, a study in texture and colour:
Later that same day, at Carvosso’s, I struck gold again with the duck leg confit, with roasted figs, green beans and mashed potato
while my companion fell upon her swordfish with glee and said it was absolutely perfect.
