Madong chocolate ganache, Irish cherries and créme fraîche ice cream

Mamo is always worth the drive. By the looks of this picture, I am ready to dive into the sensational Madong chocolate ganache, Irish cherries, and créme fraîche ice cream head first. The Madong chocolate’s velvety richness is simply divine, promising an unrivalled chocolate experience.

Accompanying it are juicy Irish cherries, their vibrant sweetness adding a delightful touch to every spoonful. And let’s not forget the pièce de résistance—the créme fraîche ice cream. Its creamy texture and delicate tang provide the perfect backdrop for these flavour dops. This exquisite combination will create a dessert sensation. This dessert is a harmonious interplay of textures and flavours. This is the culinary journey of the week. And I personally look forward to indulging in each heavenly bite. This dish promises to transport me to a realm of When Harry Met Sally level ecstasy.


Bruscetta – Aperitivo

You can’t beat fresh quality tomatoes on bread with a smattering of salt. Truly if Europe has thought us anything, it’s that tomatoes are a way of life. Now when you layer that on bread. Oooft Madone. There’s something utterly irresistible about this humble combination. It’s a dish that speaks to the essence of pure, unadulterated flavour. It is the marriage of these two simple components, the tomato and the bread, that creates a magical alchemy. The tomato’s natural acidity mingling with the bread’s nutty warmth. Nom. It’s giving essence of GirlDinner treat, making it our starter of the week. And with just a light sprinkle of salt, the flavours are elevated, with each bite delivering a balance of sweetness and savoury satisfaction best paired with a glass of wine and your best mate.


Strawberry Baklava – Amy Austin

Darlings, prepare yourselves for a visual feast that is unrivalled this week. Behold the resplendent beauty of the Strawberry Baklava. See it pictured above, adorned with a glistening Strawberry Coulis, delicate Thai Basil, and a sprinkle of Basil Sugar. This dessert is a veritable work of art that’s pitched to set your taste buds aflutter as if a handsome stranger has made lingering eye contact with you across the bar.

Every bite promises a blissful journey. To a land where the crisp layers of baklava mingle with the luscious sweetness of strawberries while the aromatic Thai Basil and a subtle hint of Basil Sugar add an enchanting depth. It is a dessert that not only delights the palate but also nourishes the soul with its sheer beauty. This Strawberry Baklava, with its intricate presentation and tantalizing flavours, is undeniably the crowning jewel of this week.


Strawberries + cream maritozzi – Elliots

Look at that modern classic. The Strawberries and Cream Maritozzi from Elliots is a little treat that is genuinely perfect for a Saturday morning. It’s a tender, pillowy maritozzi roll lightly toasted and filled to the brim with luscious strawberries and billows of fresh cream. A Maritozzi is a traditional Roman pastry that has come to take centre stage in London bakeries if TikTok is to be believed. It’s basically a light sweet bread type thing filled with cream and various toppings. Elliots bring that Italian classic to the fore here. It’s a modern twist on a timeless delight, destined to become a centrepiece of indulgence for your weekend.


Blue fin tuna belly, salted kohlrabi – Note

Look at this beauty of a dish. This is the summer of raw fish, so why not go whole hog and lean into OG Bluefin tuna? Take a punt on this extraordinary dish this week, and you will feel like a baller. Just look at the succulent slices of Bluefin Tuna Belly, so tender they melt upon your tongue. Not have paired them with the tangy crunch of salted kohlrabi. The delicate flavours of the tuna belly intermingle with the subtle brininess of the kohlrabi, creating a symphony of taste that is nothing short of extraordinary. It’s a culinary adventure that promises to transport you to the realms of gastronomic bliss. So, my dear friends, be bold, take a chance, and savour the extraordinary flavours of Bluefin Tuna Belly with Salted Kohlrabi this week.
