To the best of my memory, we had the following:
Rock lobster dumpling in dashi broth, with a paper thin slice of dehydrated apple and a tiny salad of herbs. The flavours shone brightly and the lobster had a great texture.
A salad with duck cooked rare, foie gras, raw tuna, some pickled vegetables and salad leaves. The foie gras was the highlight - not too strongly flavoured, but with such a smooth texture. There was a paper thin slice of cep on the bottom of the salad - very nice.
Kingfish with a miso glaze, and a pea puree. The kingfish was ever so slightly rare in the middle, but again, a lovely texture and clean, clear flavours.
Seared venison that was coated with...something. Not sure what it was. Nice and caramalised in the middle, but sweet and rare in the middle.
For the course where you had a choice, I had milk fed veal with a milk foam and vegetables. The veal had a milky flavour, and the texture was so smooth - firm, but it broke apart on the fork. The missus had a rack of lamb, and this was superb. Nicely charred on the outside, rare in the middle, and it was probably the best lamb that we've tasted.
Palate cleanser. A mint marshmallow, some coffee cream, and a couple of other things (a powder and a foam) - tasted great, but it didn't really cleanse my palate.
Dessert. Chocolate icecream, banana ice cream, caramalised passionfruit puree, and a chocolate biscuit. Sounds simple, but all the flavours were vibrant.
Petit fours were a choux pastry ball filled with creme, nougart, a pistachio meringue, raspberry Turkish delight, and a chocolate truffle.
Hmmmm.....I get the feeling that I've missed out on one course as I don't think the palate cleanser really counts as a course.
