Fine flavours at the manner house
You can’t help but think about the parties and dinners that have been arranged in this stately mansion over the years, even if today it is primarily the haunt of conferencing groups. A lot of foodies find their way here too, and with good reason. A menu is served here every evening and soon after one is shown to the table the sommelier sneaks in to talk about the evening’s beverage pairings, with or without alcohol. The amuse-bouche consists of small pieces of fried sweetbreads with an emulsion of tarragon, and it immediately gets us in the mood. The first course is a delicate balance of seared scallops, creamed clam and a beautifully cut pointed cabbage roll that, to the untrained eye, resembles a sheer piece of leek. It’s a bit strange, though, that part of the dish is cold while some ingredients are lukewarm. But the porcelain is beautiful and there is a well thought-out unity in the presentation. The main course of lamb is tender and tasty but it’s the crown dill emulsion that makes us howl with pleasure. We find the same intense flavour explosion in the dessert, a phenomenally beautiful arrangement of “apple pie”. Here they have paved the plate with crumbs of cinnamon and chocolate. A light green sorbet of Granny Smith constitutes the dish’s centre, and it is flanked by thin flakes of cider-flavoured meringue with a tingling acidity. This is truly the menu’s crowning dish and when the golden drops of Brännland’s ice cider slip down our gullets, we shudder with happiness...
