The last meal of 2018
As tradition demands the the last meal of the year is enjoyed in the great company of my good friends in Horsens. Typically my friends in Horsens have been finding the meals at various places, however, this year I had located, that the local Michelin place in Vejle (Memu) was selling out of the house meal for New Years celebration, so we decided to try this option out for the transition from 2018 to 2019.
The starter was a creamy soup of Jerusalem artichoke with chorizo crunch and pea leafs. The smoked cod was missing, as the received cod as judged to unfit for serve. Therefore all the buyers received a free bottle of either white, rose or red wine as compensation for the missing cod.
The in-between dish was braised pork jaw with celery puree, raw red beets and truffle cloud.
The main course was beef tenderloin fried as wild together with mustard seeds and rosemary, slice of bacon, pickled onions, fried imperial hat, small potatoes with herbs and sauce with pickled cherries and peppers.
The sweet closure to this last meal was a dessert of dark chocolate fondant with light-frozen passion fruit mousse, ginger caramel and crisp oat flakes.
The price for this four course menu was 395 DKK (approx 52 €) per person. It was all in all a very good last meal of 2018.
