Vietnamese food is about the balance of flavours, of sweet, salty and sour – there is no measuring device that can ever match your own taste buds.

BA Pop Up

Happily on standby without knowing so, (there is a food chain and I am usually found somewhere at the bottom), Richard Vines, Food Critic at Bloomberg invited me to dine with him at the BA Pop Up in Shoreditch. Days before, it was launched by Heston Blumenthal, Richard E Grant and Tracey Emin.

We got to savour Heston Blumenthal and Simon Hulstone’s Olympic inspired dishes on an aircraft set as if we were flying somewhere.

Duck egg w roasted onion consomme, lemon thyme, gruyere cheese & tapioca. Salad of mustard leaves & salted walnuts

I was very lucky to be Richard Vines‘ guest because Simon Hulstone especially prepared our dishes and gave us lots of treats, more than the three courses we ordered. Obviously, this is fine by me, my appetite is huge! Simon Hulstone, winner of the Great Britons food category is Head Chef at the Elephant restaurant in Torquay, Devon where he holds a Michelin star.

Salad of golden beet root, peppered goats curd, micro watercress & elderflower dressing
Braised British beef, grain mustard & horseradish mash, confit of young carrots & hispi cabbage
Sustainably sourced fish pie with a warm tartare sauce
Rillette of Brixham mackerel, dill picked cucumber dashi jelly & croutes

My favourite dishes were the salmon tartare, the yellow beetroot and the duck egg with tapioca. My phone ran out of battery before I can take pictures of the dessert which were a chocolate fondant and a lemon curd cheesecake – both amazing!
