Dinner @ Sage

Back in April Andrew and I successfully bid on a couple of restaurant vouchers at a silent auction at our local primary school. (Well, strictly speaking, our friends bid on them on our behalf as we were out of town! Thanks, friends.) The vouchers were for Abell's Kopi Tiam (pics here) and Sage.

We went to Sage on Saturday. It was delicious. We opted for the five-course degustation, and although each course seemed small at the time, we were definitely full by the end. Here's what we ate ...

(he had) Kangaroo tartare, with baby gem, buttermilk and tarragon

(she had, eschewing kangaroo) Cured hiramasa kingfish
with mushroom dashi and wasabi root 

(then) Seared scallop with cauliflower, miso pear and caviar

(then) Roasted free range chicken with smoked
mushroom, almond and madeira

(then) Black pepper crusted beef, with bone
marrow, brussels sprouts and sherry vinegar gel

(and for dessert) White chocolate bavarois with apple sorbet

An excellent feast. Sage is at Gorman House in Ainslie, and has its own farm to supply the restaurant.
