Staying at the Drayton Court Hotel overnight I had a meal. I went down to eat, planning to have the roasted belly of pork, only to find that they had changed the menu overnight!
So in the end, I chose the pan-roasted Cornish hake with St Austell Bay mussel velouté and sea vegetables.
The dish looked fantastic, a nice piece of fish on a bed of vegetables and there were a number of mussels in the velouté.
The fish was well cooked and the sea vegetables added different tastes and texture to the dish. The velouté was smooth and creamy. I only wish I had a spoon to finish it off.
Though I think the dish was as nice as it was, I think some bread would have been a nice accompaniment. If I was cooking it at home I might have served it with some creamy mashed potato.
