Chefs Nigel Boschetti and Anton Manganaro, executive chef at the Grosvenor House hotel and head chef at the BAFTA 195 restaurant respectively, have revealed the menu for the EE British Academy Film Awards.
The starter will be beetroot-marinated salmon with horseradish yoghurt, pink grapefruit dressing, and confit lemon; with the main course loin of lamb 'en croute', slow-braised shoulder of lamb, spiced red cabbage with golden raisins, butternut fondant, spinach and watercress mash.
There will be vegetarian options for both the starter and the main course, with the veggie starter to be beech-roasted pepper with quinoa salad and leek and wild mushrooms; while the veggie main will feature a Yorkshire feta 'en croute' in place of the loin of lamb.
Dessert for all will be a 70% dark chocolate brownie with mousse, lavender cremeux and berry compote.
