Smoked Trout Mousse
Beetroot slices, traditional homemade bread, salted butter
Paired with Cecchi La Mora Vermentino
An amazing start to our meal; with smoked trout pairing up with smooth and rich smoked trout mousse and balancing well with the citrus jelly, beetroot slices and a bed of beetroot mousse.
Goat cheese, dried tomatoes, glassy egg yolk
Paired with Bonpas Luberon
Veal tartare, that’s my first try on it; going with goat cheese, sundried tomatoes, parsley and dill; and that glassy egg yolk had my attention! Chef Pavel told us the egg yolk was confit for few hours at 75C, chilled and then finished with olive oil. How interesting, this is definitely something we don’t really see it here!
Bohemian Soup Kulajda
Creamy potatoes, fresh forest mushrooms, poached egg
Paired with Bonpas Luberon
A mix of sourish and savoury flavours. Cut through the runny poached egg and allow it to mix well with the soup for extra thickness and creaminess.
Carlsbad dumpling, sliced duck breast sous-vide, red cabbage
Paired with Zisola Nero d’Avola DOC
The star of the course, with the tender and delicious sous-vide duck leg confit and sliced duck breast, coupled with the traditional Czech Carlsbad dumplings that is made of toast, parsley and egg white; and the bed of sourish red cabbage underneath helps to reduce the richness of the duck confit and breast meat. Yum!
Old Prague’s Pear Dumplings
Marzipan, breadcrumbs, nutty butter
Paired with KWV Classic Collection Moscato
The Old Prague’s Pear Dumplings was pretty much similar to our glutinous rice ball, I would say; but filled in with pear confit and marzipan and served with crispy breadcrumbs and nutty butter which contains no nuts but brown butter.
