2010 Top 10

Posted by Nonsuch Mansion

As we get stuck into planning for 2011 and 2012, we were curious to see which menus were most popular last year. So we took a good look at the final menus for the whole of 2010 and totted up those most often selected. (We always start with these basic suggested dishes then bespoke them around a couple’s tastes)

So here is a list of the most popular dishes, the most popular in each category have been starred *

And the overall winner is… roasted rump of lamb which appeared on one out of every five menu selections regardless of season. Succulent, British yet more cost effective than beef!

1. * Smoked salmon parfait served with fennel remoulade and homemade dill bread
2. Portobello mushroom stuffed with parmesan, roast garlic and thyme with demi tasse of wild mushroom soup
3. Fresh crab tian with avocado and mango with micro shoots and chive oil

4. * Roasted rump of lamb with delicious dauphinoise potatoes, fine French beans and a rich  burgundy jus
5. Fillet of seabass, whipped lemon mash, char grilled Mediterranean vegetables, basil crisps and herb oil
6. Pistachio and shallot stuffed duck on a bed of celeriac pomme puree with confit Savoy cabbage and Marsala jus
7. Corn fed chicken stuffed with chestnut mushrooms, ricotta and roasted garlic, served on white and wild rice pilaf with rosemary roasted courgette wedges and red pepper coulis

8. * Warm molten chocolate cake served with ginger poached pears and vanilla mascarpone
