Two days ago it was my 30th birthday and I was lucky enough to visit Tom Kerridge’s 2 Mitchillin star restaurant, The Hand and Flowers in Marlow.
For the starter I opted for the Duck liver parfait with orange chutney and toasted brioche and Gav went for the Salt bake swede and haggis tart with crispy lamb, chantilly de cherve and wiltshire truffle.
The duck was without a doubt the bast starter I have ever had! It was amazingly creamy with such a delicate taste, I could have eaten it all night and left amazingly satisfied.
I enjoyed the Essex lamb bun with sweet breads and salsa verde and Gav went for the Half beer roasted chicken with caramelized cauliflower, sweet garlic puree, oak gravy and a mushroom crunch.
To wash it all down we drank a bottle of Pheasants tears with was dry and unfiltered. It has a light amber, pink color and a deep smokey taste, I will certainly be looking for this to add to my stock.
A great night with a relaxed atmosphere.
