Roasted lamb, potato rosti, minted garden peas, Black garlic purée and a pinenut emulsion
Nut roast, Chipotle aubergine, pea purée
 Château Croix-Mouton, Bordeaux Supérieur 2012. The Woodspeen, Newbury, Berkshire 
From the minute you walk into @thewoodspeen the mood is set for a sophisticated and pleasant experience.
 My lamb was cooked to perfection with the black garlic purée as a perfect accompaniment. I had to stop myself from licking the plate once finished. 
The Bordeaux blend  was a great pairing for the lamb. It’s fruity yet bold character amplified the flavours in the lamb dish. It could also quite easily be drunk on its own. 
The locally sourced/ foraged seasonal ingredients are showcased in each dish on the menu. 
Watching the chefs work in the open kitchen and the service team at work throughout the evening, it’s no wonder @thewoodspeen has a Michelin star for food and service, and a Wine Spectator award for their wine list #welldeserved
Now the mission for me is to return and sample the rest of the menu or perhaps try a class in their cookery school  in the converted barn across the road.  This is not your ordinary restaurant as you can see

Banana leaf bonanza in Reading yesterday
 A flavour packed  Malaysian feast consisting of coconut rice, beef rendang, crispy bitter gourd, sambal beans, pineapple and prawn pajeri,kaya icecream and banana fritters Pop up restaurant @makanmalaysiauk Venue provided by one of my favourite restaurants @clayshyderabadi 
This was a nosh- up with a difference and definitely something worth experiencing. Special mention goes to the beef rendang, which was rich, tender and mouth-wateringly luscious. Banana leaf meal etiquette dictates that, after the meal, the guest must always fold the banana leaf inwards as a sign of gratitude to the host.  Of course I folded mine inwards, called Su over and asked ‘when is the next event please?? #cantgetenough#malaysianfood#bananaleaf 
Next event - 31 Aug, 19:30 – 22:30 Battersea, London SW11 4AG, 🇬🇧 further details @makanmalaysiauk #getyourtickets

There was an impressive wine list to go with this cod. Cooked to perfection with a jus I could have have a cupful of. I paired with an Austrian Grüner Veltliner which enhanced my enjoyment of this fine dish. Cod  clams Launceston Place, Kensington,
