Opera and spring flavours for the Easter Bank Holiday weekend

Easter is just around the corner and it’s about time to start planning our Bank Holiday weekend food adventures. Some of you are probably having family dinners with lamb and other Easter specials but why not try French food and live opera one of your holiday days?

No Easter weekend meal at Bel Canto is complete without aperitif… A glass of champagne or prosecco sounds like a great idea. If you are feeling the spring vibes a kir royale is the perfect cocktail to enjoy while listening to our live opera show.

Start your meal with an “opera salad” or our carpaccio. Our mixed baby leaf salad with French dressing is bursting with refreshing spring flavours like asparagus, olives and sun-dried tomatoes.  Our beef carpaccio is thinly sliced and is served with green bean salad, Parmesan and a sweet raspberry dressing. These starters will give you a great start but will definitely leave some space for the main course.

When it comes to your main course there are plenty of options to choose from. Our oven baked monkfish is a perfect, light spring meal. It is served with smoked pancetta, baby spinach, crispy capers and veal jus and can be accompanied by a mixed vegetables side dish. If you are looking for a meat dish, our Prime British beef fillet is served with Pomme Maxime and shredded truffle, creating a delicious combination that will satisfy the meat lovers’ taste buds. Our vegetarian Fregola risotto will give you the taste and colours of the Mediterranean. Fresh vegetables, pea coulis and parmesan tuile make this dish our Chef’s spring favourite.

A good meal should be followed by a great dessert. Our coconut panna cotta served with fresh pineapple and red berries is the ultimate spring dessert. Refreshing and flavoursome it is served in a glass jar with fresh fruits. For the wine lovers, the perfect sweet wine recommendation is a glass of Sauternes Château Roumieu. If you are looking for an even lighter alternative, you can choose from our wide selection of sorbets and ice creams.
