With its perfect combination of sweet and sour, mango complements the rich taste of creamy cheeses, balances the heat of smoky dishes, and intensifies the flavors of other tropical fruits. This versatile fruit pairs well with apple, berries, caramel, citrus, coconut, melon, vanilla, and cinnamon.
To prepare mango flavoured protein smoothies I will try different pairings.
This wonderful place is situated in a Victorian manor house.
Surrounded by 16 acres of Surrey countryside, Hartsfield Manor is a four-star Victorian property boasting elegant interiors and a garden terrace.
I had a romantic dinner here. The menu was as follows.
Starter: chicken liver pate with toast bread fingers and red onion jam. Well, the toast was nice crispy outside and soft inside, a perfect thing. The pate was a little dull, I would have made it a little spicier with something, for example green peppers. And would have cooked the red onion jam a little longer with a little more honey and balsamic vinegar. The lettuce was flavourless, I would’ve used a little dressing on it.

The main course
Chicken breast supreme wrapped in bacon with red wine jus
You may think that this was a simple chicken breast. But no. It was full of flavours from the bacon and spices like salt and black pepper. It was tender at the same time. The vegetables were cooked with simple spices like salt a black pepper, minimum. Unlike similar dishes in London hotels vegetables were flavourful.
Third course was warm chocolate browney with vanilla ice cream.
I’ve never heard about warm browney, you can have cold and a kind of hard browneys in coffee shops. I always considered them forgettable. But not this one.
I lliked the warm chocolatey flavour with the cold vanilla ice cream splashed over with chocolate sauce.
If I have to summarize the menu, I would say it had an outstanding quality.
It’s more than a simple coffee. On weekend mornings I cherish myself with this. You need a double espresso or machiato, a little honey (coffee melange), a little hazelnut cream liqueur (home made), whipped cream, caramel sauce and cinnamon powder.
Quite long list isn’t it.
But iit’s worth the long list.
How to consume this yummy thing?
I use long tea spoon with which I spoon the cream topped with hazelnut cream liqueur, caramel cream and cinnamon or even with chocolate sauce. I try to plunge the cream into the coffee trying to make a more terrific flavour.
When it turns a little red, add chopped onion and stir fry until it becomes translucent. Add one or two teaspoons of flour and fry. Add one tablespoon tomato purée and one chicken stock cube and 200 ml warm water. Boil. Add mixed herbs like marjoram, thyme, Provence herbs, salt and black pepper. Simmer on medium temperature.
In the meantime cut chicken breast in two thin fillets. Season with salt and black pepper. Dust with flour and fry on one tablespoon of oil for two minutes on both sides. Add to the sauce and simmer for ten minutes under cover.
Season with hot sauce if you like hot flavours. Add chopped gherkins. Finish with one tablespoon of yoghurt or sour cream. Bring to the boil and serve.
The chicken will be render, the sauce a little hot and sour from the gherkins.
