Michelin food at Launceston Place
Launceston Place’s head chef Tim Allen is a perfectionist. Whenever I head over with my camera, we both enjoy tweaking the plates so they look just right for the shoot – you can see examples of how Tim builds his dishes in the gallery below.
For today, Tim brought out a starter, main and dessert: autumn vegetable salad, Iberico pork tenderloin with crushed broad beans, heritage tomatoes and pan tumaca, and fig honey and fromage frais cream with lemon sherbet meringues and strawberries.
As the weather cools, pineapple will be substituted for the strawberries and you can bet dishes will swap on and off the menu as Tim develops new ideas. Take, for example, the loin of Iberico pork – Tim had some liquor left over from soaking dried figs. Having discovered it tasted like essence of fig, he gave it a day of gentle reduction before drizzling it over the pork as a fig ‘honey’. Delicious.
