|A Road Trip to France|
It seems like they may have a different menu every couple months. When we went in mid-June, we got to experience A Road Trip to France. 5 French style set courses for $70.
We started with the Jerusalem Artichoke soup, black truffle, Parmesan doughnuts. We were given an option for extra truffle shavings for an additional $5 per person but since the other 2 girls had never had truffle before, we decided to go against it. Regrettably I should have opted for this but the truffle sprinkled over still provided that lovely earthy tone you can only get from truffles. We all agreed the consistency of the soup was fantastic and paired well with the crunchy artichoke. The Parmesan doughnuts were similar to chinese doughnuts that you eat with congee. This dish was surprisingly very generous in serving for an appetiser course.
Next was the Charcuterie, Chicken parfait, pork & duck rillette, salami and pickles. This came with a garlic foccacia which was hands down the stand alone winner of this course. The bread was the perfect level of garlicky and warm. Look at how glorious it is! I really could have done with another piece, let's be real. The charcuterie board itself was a bit of a mixed bag. My favorite component was the chicken parfait whereas was not a big fan of the pork and duck rillette. You best believe I loaded up the parfait on the bread for every bite.
Following that we had the Marseille style fish stew, fennel, rouille. This wasn't exactly a stew I was expecting and more-so a concentrated broth chock full of seafood. The briny and sweet flavours of the mussels paired well with the anise-like fennel. Cat and Julie aren't big mussel fans and gave me theirs so I was not complaining at all. A bit of crusty bread would have been the perfect vessel to round it off.
Our final savoury course was the Duck, beetroot, rhubarb, star anise, Somerset vegetables. The cook on the duck was beautiful, where it was not too fatty as well. The combination of the duck and beetroot was a winner. The Somerset salad was the perfect accompaniment to this dish with the creamy pops of goat's cheese and walnuts.
To finish the meal we had a Chocolate fondant, vanilla cream, raspberry dish. Cat enjoyed it immensely and despite me not being a chocolate fan, it was a good way to end the meal. I felt that for the amount of rich cake that was provided a little bit more cream and raspberries would have balanced it all out perfectly.
|Aperol Spritz Time|
Overall, we had a great time at Copper Pot Seddon. Their cocktails definitely hit the spot. The layout was open plan and bathroom was beautifully designed. When we dined it was COVID safe and the booking process was easygoing. The food itself was delicious and it is exciting to know their menu is ever changing. They are currently still open for takeaway and their menu looks stellar.
Value for Money: 8/10
