"Here Galetti follows the well-worn principle of intelligent cooking, that of matching expensive ingredients such as lobster with much cheaper ones such as her choice of vegetables. It is all done to great effect." READ REVIEW

"My friend had the 'Winter Tomato’ – a rectangular savoury base adorned at painstakingly creative angles with leaves and vegetables. It looked more like a Turner Prize entry than a tart. 'It’s lovely,’ said my friend. 'But, to be honest, I could have done with a side of chips.’" READ REVIEW

"... I won the main course by going for squab, which came in the shape of two small lozenges of soft pink breast with a rhubarb glaze (again, that unexpected but delightful sweetness).
