June 2012 Caveau Liverpool

After a months break Scousetro Club returned in June with the best meal yet, Dave and the team at Caveau pulled out all the stops, serving an eight course menu for £34.50. The food, ambience and service all evening was fantastic, with all the Scousetro Clubbers having a great evening.

 39 diners took their seats for a really excellent meal, that started with garlic snails with bone marrow, a dish that set the scene for a true classic French menu, that along they way took in sweetbreads, quail and frogs legs.

Snails with bone barrow

 

Scallops with poached pears, very nice if a touch too sweet.

Frogs legs with aubergine caviar and squash puree, great flavours highlighting what is a very delicately flavoured meat.

 

Langoustine in court bullion, lovely soft flesh perfectly cooked, it took a good bit of work to extract all the tasty stuff.

Roasted Quail and Braised Endive, another lovely dish. After a bit of prodding and delicate knife work the best way to tackle the quail was with your fingers. The endive was lovely and delicate.

 

Chilled Chocolate Soufflés with Cherries. This was my favourite dish, a classic combination rich, sweet and sharp, I thought it was beautiful.

 

The final cheese course, Reblechon with Quails Egg in Brioche. A great way to round off the meal, soft fantastic cheese with a great accompaniments.

All in all this meal was very very good, everyone who attended had a great time and really enjoyed the food served. You may have noticed that I’m missing a photo, I completely forgot to take a picture of the sweetbreads course, thus if any Scousetro Clubbers out there have one they could e-mail to me I would be very grateful.

Caveau was a fantastic venue for Scousetro Club, a head chef and staff who really wanted to put on a show made this night what it was. I feel everyone who attended got to try a new restaurant, it’s certainly a venue they were all keen to return to. If you couldn’t make this meal, but still want to sample what Caveau has to offer it’s open Tuesday to Sunday, serving classic french food all year round.
