Continuing my food journey in the world of Michelin star restaurants...
- •I have been meaning to go to Pidgin since it opened back in July 2015
- •Opened by James Ramsden and Sam Herlihy who up till then had ran a supper club called The Secret Larder.Kitchen was headed by chef Elizabeth Allen.
- •It was announced last year they gained their first Michelin star but just as the chef had decided to branch out on her own. ☹️Shibui opening last 2017, am excited to go. http://kaizenhouse.co.uk/
- •Pidgin serves a 4 course set menu which changes every Tuesday.
- •I arrived and sampled their G & T.Between us we tried them all.
- •Started with an amuse bouche which was an amazingly light pork crackling.Of course I forgot to take any photo of that.
- •Followed by sourdough bread with the softest brown sugar butter.Heaven.
- •1. CRUDO Pickle juice, smoked quinoa, herbsNever thought I'd say this - the quinoa was to die for. This whole dish was just amazing as well as colourful.
- •2. JERUSALEM ARTICHOKE Blue Monday, black rice amazake, white chocolate, sorrelI don't even like blue cheese but...this was 😶
- •3. BEEF Onion, celeriac, sourdough, morels, watercressbrisket bolognese on toasted sourdough bread killed me 😵
- •4. GHEWAR Mezcal ice cream, rice paper confetti, caramel, blood orangeMezcal ice cream is my new everything
- •Petit foursThese after dinner sweet treats were delightful. The white one was my favourite.
- •We ended the meal being served ice cold Pidgidcello (a take on lemoncello).🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋
- •I'm still dreaming about this meal.Can't wait to go try another week's menu.
