Nostalgic country estate cooking

Carden Park is a lavishly scaled country estate not far from Chester. If you look hard, you'll see its Jacobean core, but the views from the formal gardens to the Welsh mountains beyond are enough to be going on with. Country-house cooking with a nostalgic air is the drill, embracing ginger-crumbed goats' cheese mousse with beetroot purée and a parmesan wafer, before a trio of lamb - a faggot of braised shoulder, roast rump and chargrilled cutlet - with sticky red cabbage, wilted spinach and fondant potato. Finish with flapjack-based coconut and raspberry delice with coconut ice cream and raspberry sauce, or tangerine tart and orange sorbet.
