Yet another riff on forests, soils and the like. Playing around here with a few components, flavours and presentation ideas, based Рrather improbably Рon the The Forest of Dean. Inspiration came from the genuinely wild boar now being supplied over at Restaurant Allium.

Winter Woodland: chestnut+applewood smoked 36-hour rib with sticky birch sauce, oak-flavoured acorn, mimetic bark, herb mousseline, pickled crab apple, yeast+verjus+nut soil, morel + sorrel, roast chestnut cream, brassica moss.

This blog began way back in Spring 2011, with a peek at one of several nature-inspired desserts I was developing. A little further down the road and – just in time for autumn – here’s the final dish, tweaked for service and rolling out right now.

Forest Floor: Hazelnut praline parfait pine cone, lemon thyme yoghurt ice cream, malted nut m-cake and chocolate soil, sloe gin berries, yoghurt sherbet snow, sweet cicely.
