A British Sunday luncheon

My first British luncheon at The Goring!

A BRITISH SUNDAY LUNCHEON. A classic British Sunday roast usually intales roasted meat, roast potato with accompaniments such as Yorkshire pudding, stuffing, vegetables and gravy. The Goring has created its own version of the classic Sunday roast, a slightly more refined version under the direction of Executive Chef Shay Cooper. They were awarded with their first Guide Michelin star back in 2015, well deserved, the dining room at The Goring executes classic British dishes in a refined and modern way. Johan was the one of us that got closest to the more classic Sunday roast by ordering the chicken with gravy, I don’t eat meat anymore but it looked amazing! I on the other hand ordered their cod which was a beautiful experience that I was so happy with, the thing I loved the most with the dish was the fried oyster on top of the cod! I have never eaten a fried oyster in my life before, I actually don’t even enjoy oysters that much but my oh my, fried oysters is a marvellous thing! Now I need do find a restaurant in Stockholm that serves fried oysters asap, my mouth is watering just by thinking about it! It’s not very often that I get surprised by a dessert but I must say that they have created stunning desserts that you can’t miss, I had their cornish clotted cream mousse, apple sorbet with caramelised hazelnuts and I was in awe, stunning textures and flavours, my taste buds were cheering with joy!


A BRITISH SUNDAY LUNCHEON. Jag och Johan fick uppleva vår första Brittiska luncheon på The Goring förra Söndagen, en klassisk Sunday roast men här så serveras den på ett lite mer raffinerat sätt tack vare Shay Cooper som är executive chef och tack vare av hans starka vision och craftmanship så fick även restaurangen en stjärna i Guide Michelin guiden 2015, very well deserved! Johan var väl den av oss som kom närmst en Sunday roast då han tog deras roasted chicken med sås och grönsaker. Jag äter inte kött längre utan höll mig till deras fisk vilket var en ljuvlig torsk, högst upp på torsken så hade dom lagt ett friterat ostron och vilken höjdpunkt det var, vart hittar jag friterade ostron i Stockholm? Måste äta friterade ostron igen, asap, det var makalöst gott! Jag vet inte hur många gånger jag har sagt det, kommer antagligen säga det 1 000 gånger till men jag fullkomligt älskar England och dess traditioner, allt från afternoon tea till Sunday roast, Britterna genomför allt med sådan finess och klass, alltid artiga, brusar aldrig upp, vältalande samt propert klädda! Johan har lite Brittiskt blod i sig och jag fullkomligt älskar allt med London/England så att vi flyttar hit inom en snar framtid känns inte mer än logiskt.

Don’t miss: The British asparagus with sea trout (Starter) and the cod with a fried oyster (Maincourse).
