Lightly Roasted Lake Trout with Forced Rainbow Chard and Clams
Chef: Lee Miller
Seasonal vegetable: Rainbow chard
The right combination of vegetables can really enhance the flavours of a fish dish. Spinach and tomatoes add some depth to this meal, but the rainbow chard is the star player. Rainbow chard is actually the name given to a collection of different-coloured chard – the stalks can vary from ruby and rhubarb-coloured to various shades of green. The chard itself is a leafy vegetable, and once cooked, its flavour is more delicate than spinach, so adding a little butter (as in this recipe) can bring it to life.
Traditional English food in Leeds
A welcoming city in West Yorkshire, Leeds is home to a variety of restaurants, cafés and street food stalls. Traditional English food, much like Scottish food, is based around subtle yet satisfying flavours. Fish and chips, Sunday roasts with beef and Yorkshire pudding, bangers and mash, and a classic fry-up (a fried breakfast) are some of the most popular dishes.
There are two sides to Leeds that you should explore during your visit: you can go upmarket and eat in one of the many sophisticated restaurants (including the Radisson Blu’s Firelake Grill House and Cocktail Bar), and you can also try something more traditional in one of the many cosy pubs – you’ll find fantastic food in both. Book your stay in the Radisson Blu Hotel Leeds today, and start planning!
