Delifonseca is set to serve an exclusive Easter Sunday set menu for the first time following the success of Mother’s Day.
On Sunday April 5, the award-winning Dockside restaurant will mark the national holiday by offering a specially selected three-course menu that has been devised by head chef Martin Cooper.
Proprietor Candice Fonseca said: “As Easter is predominantly a family orientated occasion, we’d like to encourage people to leave the cooking to us so that they can enjoy some quality time together. Easter should be a time for gatherings amongst loved ones and friends - not a time to be stuck in the kitchen!”
To begin their meal, diners can choose from a range of starters including Baked Figs stuffed with Blacksticks Blue and wrapped in Cheshire Air-Dried Ham; Chilli King Prawns with Samphire and Pea, Mint and Courgette Soup.
Main courses include Herdwick Lamb Rump served with Boulangere Potaotes, Courgette and Basil Puree and a Red Wine Jus; Fish Stew containing Red Mullet, King Prawns, Squid and ‘whatever else to boat brings in’, as well as Mushrooms à la Grecque served with a Leek, Lemon and Thyme Potato Cake topped with Melted Mature Cheddar and a Crispy Poached Egg plus Sunday roasts for the traditionalists.
Those with a sweet tooth can then enjoy desserts such as Easter Sunday Ice Cream Sundae; Vanilla Pannacotta served with Fruit Couli and Apricot & Pistachio Easter Trifle.
Candice added: “Whether guests prefer nostalgic Easter flavours or something a little more contemporary, our Easter Sunday menu is packed with unique foodie combinations that all of the family will enjoy. With that in mind, we’ve also created a suitably portioned menu for little ones.
“We hope that our inaugural Easter celebrations will be the first of many.”
The Easter menu is available at Delifonseca Dockside on Sunday April 5 from 12pm and is priced at £26.50 per person. Booking is essential and a non-refundable £5 deposit is required.
