We were looking forward to our return visit to MArtin Wishart at Cameron House, having enjoyed an excellent lunch there last year.
So we set off on the road to Cameron House Hotel and arrived promptly in time for our 1.30 dining reservation.
The Lunch Menu
Anna's brown bread
My white bread
The bread was fairly standard, though good quality. My only complaint of this meal is that we were not offered any further bread, which would have been welcome at the time!
As always the Amuse Bouche at Martin Wishart continues to surprise and delight. The beetroot macaron with horseradish cream was light and refreshing. The next item was an upscale version of curry and chip, an explosion of flavours leaving you to long for more. The dish was finished by a light veloute which we both enjoyed very much.
Starter - Terrine of French farmed Rabbit
I opted for the terrine of rabbit, which appeared as a sizable portion and had a fine rich rabbit flavour. The was wrapped in pancetta ham and also tasted great with the pickled vegetables.
Starter - Crab three ways
Unfortunately, neither of the starters were to Anna's taste, so the waiter recommended this dish from the a la carte menu. This dish was beautifully presented and Anna enjoyed the flavours of crab contained therein.
Main Course - Roasted Guinea Fowl Supreme
We both had the Guinea Fowl which was excellent, and was complemented well by a Fioe Gras sauce. A soft velvety potato mousseline was hidden by the flavoursome guinea fowl, and the peas and broad beans provided additional flavour.
Dessert - Coffee and Praline Cream Mousseline
Again the same dessert was had by myself and Anna. The dessert itself contained plenty of flavour and was accompanied by chocolate ice cream for Anna, and praline ice cream for me. My only complaint is that the dessert did not quite fill us up the same as the fantastic Passionfruit and Orange Souffle of our previous visit.
Praline Ice Cream
Petit Fours - Blood Orange and Passionfruit Jellies
Petit Fours - A selection of hand made chocolates
Petit Fours and coffee for Anna rounded off our meal perfectly, with the salted caramel chocolate being the favourite of those selected from the tray.
This was our first visit since the award of a Michelin star and service and the quality of the food was excellent as ever. We hope that we can return soon to enjoy another fantastic meal at Martin Wishart
