Chiswick temple to superb produce cooked with flair

Mikael Jonsson’s Hedone is a testament to his untiring, obsessive search for Europe’s finest ingredients. He’s chosen an unassuming spot along Chiswick High Road – far from the bright lights of Central London – for one of the country's most idiosyncratic and thrilling restaurants. There's a relaxed Scandinavian charm to the room – bare brick, striking artwork, blond wood and an open kitchen at its beating heart, where produce at peak freshness and quality turns up daily for transformation into some incredibly creative dishes. Turn up with an open mind, as the deal is a brace of tasting menus that can change during service and one table may not get exactly the same as another. An opening salvo of canapés sets the scene, among them and intricate pea cone filled with veal jelly and rare tuna and topped with lemon mayonnaise and dried capers, prefacing an array of easy-on-the-eye plates of sublime flavours and technical virtuosity. Devon crab comes with crisp apple, horseradish and hazelnut emulsion; peerless langoustine is dressed with coral foam, coconut sauce and dashi jelly; superb lamb gets a kick from kale powder, anchovies and cabbage. Among sweet courses, rhubarb ice cream arrives with poached rhubarb, yogurt semi-freddo, lemon meringue and sorrel.
