Team La Mouette does it again

I am in love with food photography. And while I try to style plates myself I think, and you might agree, that it would be an utterly indulgent affair to have a French trained chef style the plates for you instead.

So I mailed Mari last week and between herself and Chef Henry they allowed me to have my hedonistic moment and take a few snaps  of the new Gourmand Menu at La Mouette.

Here’s a visual introduction to this 6 course meal, which I have to affirm, tastes spectacular.

Chilled tomato gazpacho smoked herb oil, truffle and cheese croquettes
Salt and pepper prawns shaved radish, chorizo popcorn, sweet corn pureé
Assiette of duck apricot puree, brioche crumble, honey and pistachios
Crayfish ravioli almond crumble and cauliflower foam 
Lamb 3 ways ratatouille provençal, grilled courgette and smoked aubergine puree

‘Pina colada coconut panacotta, pineapple granita

Lemon curd burnt honey cream, honey comb, spearmint and crème fraiche sorbet
Gorgonzola vanilla roasted fig mushroom puree and bread crisps
