I’ll be honest with you, from the description on the menu I didn’t have any idea what was going to show up here, but oh-my-god have you seen this creation?
You don’t often see lychee on a menu and I’d forgotten how much I like the flavour – and lychee is front and centre in this dish, though it remains light, fragrant and intriguing.
This is sponge layered with lychee and rosewater cream, compote of poached lychee and rhubarb, rosewater jelly, little dollops of rhubarb gel, spun sugar and edible flowers bookended by crisp sentries of tempered white chocolate.
That’s a lot of elements and a lot of work, and you’re going to demolish it in minutes. You monster.
