    Tarte Sablée à la Châtaigne
    Et Citron confit, Sabayon au Lagavulin (£17)
    (Chestnut and Lemon confit tart, Whisky Sabayon.)

    Notes: The sablée crust was only a ring. The interior consisted of a ring of chestnut mousse with a core of lemon confit (think lemon curd the consistency of very fine and silky apple sauce). This tart "filling" was topped with a wonderfully strong whiskey sabayon and crowned with a crisp sugar dome.

      If I saw this on the menu, I'd order it too.

      OK, now I know what dessert would follow with the braised dish, Renee. ;-)
