Ahead of National Vegetarian Week we thought we’d celebrate by sharing the secret recipes to one of our newest veggie dishes at The Salt Room. It’s quickly become one of your favourites; Charred Artichoke with Stracciatella, Pink Grapefruit and Truffle Dressing. The dish is achingly seasonal, the freshness of the grapefruit coupled with the Stracciatella and the richness of the truffle dressing work together perfectly for these brighter days, best coupled with a crisp cold glass of white. We suggest Bread & Butter, Californian Chardonnay.
1 pink grapefruit segmented
12 pieces charred artichoke
80g hazelnuts – toasted and crushed
1 head frisse – picked, yellow leaves only
1 clove garlic minced
70g extra virgin olive oil
40g chardonnay vinegar
8g white truffle oil
4g truffle paste
Divide the Stracciatella between four starter plates. Move cheese around so as to fill almost to the rim of the plate.
Season the cheese with olive oil, lemon & lime zest, and the salt
Top the cheese with the artichoke pieces, 3 per plate
Arrange the pink grapefruit, hazelnuts and frisse evenly amongst the plates
Finish the dish by drizzling the truffle dressing over the dish and enjoy!
