August Dish of the Month (ONE6EIGHT)

Braised pork jowl w lemon balm, caramelised parsnip & fennel salad

Braised pork jowl w lemon balm, caramelised parsnip & fennel saladThere are certain Chefs who can deliver the core flavour profile of  produce better than others, and Chef Leigh McDivitt is undoubtedly one of them. However, that clarity of flavour and layering of textures is underpinned by very sound technical skills that enable him to assemble a multitude of components on a plate with both cohesion and purpose. This simpler, but nonetheless extremely well executed dish, is an unapologetic homage to everything that is entirely joyous about food. The sublime richness of the fatty jowl and reduction, is intelligently cut across by the freshness of the lemon balm and fennel, leaving the diner in a state of sheer unadulterated bliss.
