Who's excited for NYE? I hope you've all had a happy and healthy 2012! Last night Jim and I, along with our friend Kate, went along to one of our favourite restaurants in Norfolk, the Wildebeest. It's such a tucked away gem right out in the countryside but I thought it would merit a blog post because it can be quite difficult finding great restaurants in this area, and this is definitely one of them. As well as this, the food is so beautifully presented so it makes for lovely photos and if any of you are passing by then you should definitely pop in!
We started off with some bread and a lovely glass of red wine.
For starter, Jim had haddock and mussel risotto whilst Kate and I had the same - beef carpaccio with a horseradish sorbet which was so good.
For main, Jim had monkfish tail with a pea risotto and other yummy things, Kate and I went for the same again and had sea bream with chorizo gnocchi and greens which I thought just looked beautiful on the plate! (And some thrice cooked chips with gruyere on the side too!)
We all rounded the meal off with white chocolate and ginger cheesecake with salted caramel ice cream and almond biscotti, it was so so delicious and so beautifully presented.
They take bookings, so if you're ever on a Norfolk adventure check them out. If not, then I hope you enjoy the photos and maybe get some inspiration anyway!
