Dinner at The Hand and Flowers, Marlow !!

Just the one night off from Vagina Monologues tour and needed a catchup and a lovely meal out, so headed to the Hand and Flowers in Marlow, Bucks and the fabulous food of Tom Kerridge, who has won the main course dish for the Great British Menu on BBC2 two years running.
As usual, we weren't disappointed... I started with a salt cod scotch egg with chorizo - just perfect !!
Kenny and I then shared the Pork platter which won the Great British Menu last year.....

It was a fantastic talking point and every element of the dish was amazing - the best crackling I've ever had and the potatoes baked in the salt crust were so moist and tasty.
For pudding we chose a pear souffle - so light and served with a pear puree and a mace mascarpone.....

And a tonka bean pannacotta with poached plums and plum jelly and sorbet - an autumn version of his Great British Menu strawberries and cream pannacotta - the sorbet was to die for.......

A wonderful meal and evening with the Caldesi's !!
