the veg soc review

here are the main feedback points from the veg soc review. i've got to say that in the main i agree. we didn't get the ravioli right at first and i think that is when we were reviewed. by the last week that dish was delish (as leanne would say)

Congratulations on making the shortlist and I have to say the standard was very high. In the main the feedback we received about the food and your restaurant was very good, with only the odd thing letting you down. I’ve tried to pick out the most relevant info for you.

What was judged:

Starters: A – mushroom ravioli with red onion sauce

              B – morrocan meze

Main:    A – chakalaka spinach balls spiced polenta cake + yoghurt

            B – mushroom, squash, sweet potato and cashew nut curry

Dessert;  A – caramel cheesecake

              B – pear and almond tart

On presentation: the main one that let you down was the starter A which was described as plain looking. The rest were all described as having a good array of colour, looking appetizing

Taste: Starter A – slightly bland. Starter B – good flavours, lovely humous. Main A – yoghurt not so good. Dessert A & B – flavours work well.

Texture: starter A – a little sloppy, Starter B – good selection of textures and tastes. Dessert A – very original

Appetite satisfaction – both meals scored highly – good portions although would have been good if the starters were slightly larger

About the restaurant – very clean, comfortable and relaxed atmosphere

About the service, staff – excellent. Very polite and knowledgeable.

let's hope it doesn't go to their heads. better luck next year.
