Clean-lined modern cooking with East Asian notes

Mortons is a beautifully maintained Elizabethan manor of the 1590s on the Isle of Purbeck, within sight of Corfe Castle. An openness to East Asian tastes brings a teriyaki-sesame dressing to seared salmon seasoned with Dorset's own wasabi as an opener. This could be the prelude to fillet and braised cheek of pork with fondant celeriac and a rustic white bean cassoulet fragrant with rosemary, or sea bass with crab and tomato in a Thai-seasoned sauce of lemongrass and galangal. Sharp citric flavours illuminate Tuscan-style orange cake with lemon curd and mascarpone ice cream, and refreshment is also the keynote of chilled rice pudding served in cherry soup.
