I keep getting this sneaking suspicion that I missed out on something really good last night at the 10th annual Savour Food & Wine show.
This year, the event was held at the Cunard Centre – which is a great venue. The room is so large and wide open, though, that it felt like I’d never make it to all the booths in only two-and-a-half hours. Hence the nagging feeling that I missed something tasty!
I did manage to sample more than a few really great dishes. The crowd favourite seemed to be (and I agree) the braised short rib on celeriac puree with sweet peas and double-smoked bacon from Saege Bistro. All biases aside, this was a fantastic, melt-in-your-mouth, deeply flavourful dish.
Another decadent and unbelievable taste was the foie gras mousse with caramelized apples from Ratinaud! Well done.
A few other favourites of mine were: the gnudi with beef bolognese and Parmesan cheese from MODA, the Port Pub’s lamb burger, and the truffle aioli that accompanied the steak frites from Bistro le Coq. Yum.
Here is a quick photo tour from the night.
