7 Course Taster Menu!

In the hotel I stayed in, in Wales, they had a 7 course taster menu on offer for the first night! Before you're all '7 courses? How is that possible?' I'd like to emphasize 'taster menu' all the courses were small, so by the end of the courses, you'd be as satisfied as if you were to have one normal sized meal.

The menu was planned out so there were two starters, three mains and two puddings.

1. Red cabbage gazpacho
This was basically a cold soup. It tasted like liquid coleslaw which sounds strange, but it wasn't bad. It wasn't my favorite, but nice to try none-the-less! 

2. Pork rillettes
This one was so good! It had a pâté-like consistency and it was served with a apple sauce.

3. Butternut and sage risotto
I'm not usually keen on risotto, however this one was an exception. It had such a nice texture and all the flavors were so good! I wish I had a bigger portion!

4. Fillet of salmon
This was served with textures of cauliflower and a saffron potato. The salmon had a really nice flavor and I thoroughly enjoyed this course!  

5. Breast of chicken
Served with haricot beans and chorizo, this course was one of my favorites!

6. Pear sorbet
This course had such a refreshing taste, and cooled the rather rich taste of the chorizo from the previous dish. A pudding I would definitely order a larger size of!

7. Rhubarb and custard
I always like rhubarb and custard desserts, so this was a welcome twist to the usual form of this pudding.
