Flavours from the British Summer Kitchen Garden
LONDON - This summer, Blue Boar Restaurant at Conrad London St James will be celebrating the "Summer Kitchen Garden". Executive Chef, Michael Riordan, has created a menu bursting with the colours, flavours and ingredients found and grown in the typical British garden.
Dishes have been designed to inspire a mouthful of summer and reflect the elements that make up a kitchen garden. From the vegetable patch to the edible flowers and potted plants, the menu showcases the best of British produce. Highlights include the Asparagus and Duck Egg starter with Wye Valley asparagus and flat leaf parsley butter, and the Yorkshire Lamb with pea shoot accompanied by pea and ricotta tortellini. The desert menu offers floral and fruity hints with the Rose Water Panna Cotta with lychee sorbet, and finally (the gardener's dream) a Chocolate Flower Pot bursting with minty aromas.
Executive Chef Michael Riordan says: "Summer is the most colourful time of year and we wanted to create this on a plate. The menu uses produce that you might grow in your own garden and brings the essence of summer into the restaurant."
The menu will be paired with the exclusive Perrier-Jouet Blanc de Blancs. It is the Maison's most vivacious cuvee, 100% Chardonnay grapes, selected from exceptional vineyards in the champagne region. The House's seventh Cellar Master, Herve Deschamps, added a touch of reserve wines and a light dosage of 8g/9l, to create a wine that bursts with freshness, lightness and vitality. The epitome of summer, this is the perfect wine to accompany the 'Summer Kitchen Garden' menu.
Dedicated to sourcing only the best and most local ingredients possible, Blue Boar Restaurant offers high quality, contemporary British dining in the heart of Westminster. The Summer Kitchen Garden set menu will be available in the Blue Boar Restaurant from 1st June to 30th June 2017 from £38 for a three course lunch.
