Swellness Sundays

(Anything I find swell. Posted on Sundays. Real scientific, I know…)

(This includes deliciousness I’ve eaten recently.)

When I got the invite to try the new holiday menu at Brassaii, I immediately started counting down the days until the dinner. At the summer tasting, I’d had a ravioli that when sliced into revealed the perfect runny egg yolk that was soo good I still dream of it. And at the seven-course tasting this week,  it was this dish I fell in love with (pardon the bad photo):

It’s a bay scallop, with beluga lentils, iberico chorizo and roasted pistachio vinaigrette. Yes, you’d expect me to like it (chorizo, after all) but scallops are actually not my favourite — it’s a texture thing for me (too squooshy sometimes for me). But the melding of flavours in this little number has me singing its’ praises.

Yes, I know, you want to go to there to try this. Trust me.

(and while you’re at it, try the Drunken French Sailor cocktail; it’s my favourite there — although the smokiness of the scotch may not be for everyone).
