Goodwood Park Hotel, known as the Teutonia Club in the 1900s, was an exclusive enclave for German expatriates. From 17 April to 14 June, Gordon Grill celebrates the hotel’s origin with notable German dishes interpreted through modern European culinary style.
Available as a three or four-course set menu or a five-course degustation, the creations highlight lesser known dishes from different Germanic regions, refined for today’s cosmopolitan palate.
The epicurean affair commences with prized German White Asparagus paired with apple cured salmon. The ensuing appetiser – Seared Atlantic Sea Scallops, smoked Black Forest Ham and Brown Mushroom Ragout with hollandaise sauce, combines the flavours of the Northern Deutschland coast with that of the South.
The German feast continues with the flavours of household Bavarian favourites. The subtly sweet Bavarian Sauerkraut Soup is well balanced with rich umami from speck – cured port fat in addition to caraway seeds, the quintessential Bavarian aromatic.
The main course presents a choice between the flavours of Bavaria, Crispy Pork Belly served with dark beer and caraway gravy, or the cuisine of the North with Poached Halibut Fillet in Mustard Dill Veloute with Smoked Eel. The pork belly is roasted to perfection in this dish that includes braised savoy cabbage and mini bread dumplings while the Halibut and Smoked Eel are served atop a compote of Kohlrabi – a German wild turnip, leeks and potatoes.
The Duo of Delectable German desserts comprising of Red Grits served with bourbon vanilla sauce and Dark Cherry Crumble Cheesecake with Hazelnut Ice Cream will both satiate and satisfy. The tanginess of the Red Grits is complemented with bourbon vanilla sauce making it an irresistible sweet treat while the luxurious dark cherries feature prominently in this cheesecake paired with hazelnut ice cream to enhance the flavours.
