Nikau dinner 4

Went to the last Nikau dinner last night. At least the plane ride back from Blenheim yesterday evening was much smoother so we actually felt in the mood to eat. On the way saw some of the wreckage from the winds on Saturday – this half-a-tree in the garden outside the Council for starters.

So, Sunday 4:

Fried sardine, white bean, olive & preserved lemon salad
Baked fresh goats cheese, leeks, hazelnuts and rocket
Braised lamb shoulder with saffron, mint, peas & broad beans
Grapefruit eclairs & caramel sauce

(Yick fishy sardines but yummy salad with the olives picked out, goats cheese actually very nice considering I favour feta, lamb was a bit too much meat and by the time this course came I had been eying up the eclairs and definitely wanted to save room for them and my GOD they were worth the wait – cream was tangy and caramel sauce divine.)
