I’m not sure which aspect of the press release about a new menu being served at Mercedes-Benz World in Weybridge, Surrey, I find most disturbing. Is it the impression created by the “tongue-in-cheek” main course – yes that is literally:
Rillette of pork cheeks, pickled beetroot with pork tongue, pease pudding, Bramley apple sauce
Or is it the restaurant’s name, Gullwing. Rather than having a mental image of a gull-wing car door (ie the type that hinge at the top), the catering context made me wonder about diners being encouraged to eat seagulls.
As a vegetarian, I don’t think either option is very appealing – although both would be organic with the official menu offering food from former-F1 racing driver, Jody Scheckter‘s pioneering Laverstoke Park farm, not far away from where I live.
