This was the main course served at our Italian Wine Tasting Dinner in February. Tried and tested by Mr. Lindskog and this is what he had to say…..
As a sweetbread virgin, I was a bit intimidated by this. But you never forget your first, and I won’t forget this.
The elegant wild garlic provides beautiful top-notes and the sweetbread is the silky, crunchy foundation for the blushing lamb.
I was new to wild garlic and although the name implies garlic thuggery, it couldn’t be more refined. As for the sweetbread – I’m converted. I found it to be a gorgeous experience of texture rather than flavour and I could list adjectives like silky, tender and creamy but really – just try it.
