Modern cuisine with visceral transportive energy
At recently anointed 1 Michelin star @margueriterestaurant, Chef Michael Wilson not only highlights spring through its produce, but effectively created his cuisine with a visceral transportive energy to showcase the nature of the season and its ensuing eating habits. Cold soups, garden peas and foraged herbs, bring it on!
This adeptness is furthered in the dish of morel mushrooms custard served with a train of good things. From spring peas, to asparagus, burnt butter, lovage oil and even bear paw garlic, which my surrounding forests in the Loire countryside have proven to be a treasure trove of. Immediately, my mind leaps to an expanse of fields dotted with rejuvenating colours from the rallying flora and fauna, the excitement from the passing of winter, and also the thrill that the abundance of the earth brings.
