I ate my first whole, baked cheese in a french restaurant in Guangzhou last year and after seeing something similar on Masterchef, decided to try and recreate it for Mr HHM's lunch . It was quick and simple and I'll definitely be making more of this!

BLACK by Ezard
I love bread! Especially complimentary bread served at restaurants. It's always one of the highlights of my meal and Black didn't disappoint. 
We were given a soft, warm and buttery brioche to share between 3 and lucky for me, both my dining companions weren't huge fans of the brioche so...more for me XD
Roasted duck breast, braised and crispy kale, confit leg 
cannelloni, foie gras sauce. The duck was perfect!
Poached Hapuka, calamari, chorizo, celery, onion sago.  I've never had sago in a savoury dish before but it was really good. As much as I loved my duck, I actually suffered from a small bout of dish envy because of the Hapuka. 

Corn fed chicken with parmesan custard, broccoli angelotti and roasted jus
Crispy potato with crème fraiche, smoked bacon, aged cheddar. This is seriously addictive. We were fighting over the little small pieces of bacon and crispy potato left on the plate. 
 L:Mac and cheese. This was the disappointment of the evening. The mac was quite bland and it didn't taste very cheesy.
R: Cos, chorizo, piquillo pepper, heirloom carrot. Really light and refreshing salad. 
Lemon meringue tart. The lemon tart had a nice tang to it without being too sweet. The 6 mini meringues were very soft and marshmallowish and they were shared perfectly between 3.
