The second half of Wellington on a Plate is given over to Burger Wellington, a veritable festival of all things burger. There are all sorts on offer: beef, chicken, venison…and the sweet. We returned to Field & Green this week for their Brick Lane burger…and a couple of other treats too.
We decided to start with the black pudding croquette with apple sauce this week. As black pudding lovers, this was a delight. It wasn’t your slice as part of a full breakfast, being much lighter and softer. The apple sauce cut through the strong flavours as a perfect complement. We drank a vermouth with this to start our meal.
The burger this year from one of our favourite places to eat in Wellington was an Anglo-Indian-spiced fried chicken with Coronation curried coleslaw in a Shelly Bay Bakery milk bun, served with papadum and raita. This was a spicy burger, full of flavour, with moist pieces of chicken and an excellent old fashioned curry coleslaw that was a perfect match. I loved the pairing of papadum and cooling raita as well.
So, the verdict? Once again Laura Greenfield and team have produced wonderful food, full of memories, flavours and clever combinations.
