Diners can now sample the dishes which wowed the judges on BBC’s Great British Menu at a Lake District hotel.
Dan McGeorge, head chef at the Rothay Manor in Ambleside, was named champion of champions at the series’ banquet for his dish Give a Dog a Bone.
Now Dan will be serving his competition dishes at the hotels as an evening tasting menu
The four-course tasting menu inspired by this year’s theme of British innovation, features Dan’s full menu including his starter, fish course, main, and dessert.
His starter, called Doctor’s Orders, a deconstructed take on a classic scouse, is made with Herdwick lamb loin, barbecue carrot, a carrot top emulsion, pickled onion, potato crisp, toasted yeast and a lamb consommé.
The dish celebrates Lucy Cradock, Liverpool’s first practising female doctor.
His fish course, Deep Blue Sea, consists of barbecued monkfish, served with cockles, kohlrabi and a silver submarine flavoured with Xo sauce.
The dish is a nod to early submarine designer Reverend George Garrett, whose first design sank off the coast of Rhyll.
The main course, The Amazing Adventures of Isabella Bird, marks the achievements of this intrepid explorer, orientalist and first female member of the Royal Geographical Society.
The course is made up of six Asian inspired dishes, one from each of the countries Isabella’s visited and includes: Korean fried lamb sweetbreads with a sticky barbecue sauce, Japanese tempura vegetables, Vietnamese morning glory with oyster sauce, soy marinated quail eggs, stir fried lotus root and barbecued char sui pork.
His final course, Give A Dog A Bone, features a bone shaped milk chocolate mousse, with a miso caramel centre, sprayed in chocolate, served with a miso caramel sauce, salted caramel ice cream, honeycomb miso tuile and yuzu gel and zest.
The dish celebrates the training of the first four guide dogs by Muriel Crooke and Rosamund Bond.
The menu will be available to diners for a limited time only and must be pre-booked. The menu is priced at £90 per person.
A matched drinks pairing is also available priced at £48 per person.
