When I walked into the Hereford House this evening I knew I was going to have seafood; I just didn’t know what kind. As soon as I opened up the menu, it jumped out at me like fish behind a boat’s motor—the Atlantic Cod with a side of Cheddar Ranch Potatoes.
When that plate came to me, I knew I’d chosen wisely. The cod looked like it was wrapped in a delicious pasty. The truth was far better. Chef Gilbert’s team had dusted it in seasoned flour, sautéed it in clarified butter and baked it until it was just perfect.
The Puree Blanc on top added a welcome richness of cream and white wine to the flavors of the seasoned flour.
It wasn’t until I was nearly done with both pieces of cod that I realized it had happened again—I forgot about the side. But this wasn’t just any side. This was my Cheddar Ranch Potatoes, the side I often wish I’m having with just about every meal.
I’m telling you, these Hereford House entrees are so good, you’ll lose your senses for a bit.
