Collage & Dining an Immersive Food and Art Event at Carousel:
Our next bottle was the Crystallum Pinot Noir was a classic pinot and the perfect match for the foie gras, braised chicken, sloe gin jus, redcurrant jelly and brioche toast which was rich and flavourful, characteristics which married perfectly with Daniel Greer’s ‘Glob Save Queen V’ with faces of our royals melting in a Francis Baconesque manner.
White chocolate and champagne mousse caramelised rose petals and strawberries surprisingly enough had a creamy strawberry champagne vibe taken from the colour ways of Anthony Gerace’s ‘There Must Be More to Life Than…’ As were those taken from Kieran Madden’s ‘Sky Rocket Woman’ the impetus for the final dish of blueberries and crushed meringue curaçao custard and almond sponge.
I really enjoyed this event. The meal was a bit uneven in quality but great value at £40 (without booze) and it was fun to experience a chef’s imagination let loose in a creative project.
