Duck Inn for dining delicacies

-

DRAKE’S Restaurant at the Duck Inn has an updated menu of main meals this season, again drawing inspiratio­n from a range of different chefs who’ve brought their own style to the restaurant over the past few years.

“Of course we have to have duck on the menu,” said owner Aleks Stanish, “and the duck Maryland remains ever-popular.

“We’ve kept some popular dishes and introduced some new, one of the most requested being the 12hour slow cooked lamb.

“It’s juicy, pulls apart, and just falls off the bone.”

Head chef Nick Stewart returns to Drake’s Restaurant this season, complement­ing the modern accommodat­ion of the Duck Inn, which Aleks and his wife Karen rebuilt in 2013.

A meal in the intimate restaurant wouldn’t be complete without a taste of this season’s new standout dessert.

“The tiramisu has been a big winner.

Tiramisu is normally a cake, but these are made individual­ly in a cocktail glass, in a unique Italianins­pired style,” said Aleks.

The desert came about from a chance meeting Aleks’ son, Boris, had with a two-hat Michelin Chef while completing biathlon training in Livigno, a town in the province of Sondrio, northern Italy.

“It has the same flavours people know and love, but is more rich and creamy,” Aleks said.

The Duck Inn is open for dinner every evening except Tuesday night and offers a range of matching wines to suit the main courses and desserts on this eclectic menu.
