In the heart of Cheshire, where culinary dreams come alive, La Popote invites you to an evening of unparalleled luxury and gastronomic delight. On this special occasion, we present a Lobster Soiree that promises to elevate your dining experience to extraordinary heights. Let’s tantalise your taste buds with a glimpse into this opulent affair.
The Main Attraction: Lobster Thermidor
Prepare to be enchanted by the pièce de résistance of the evening – the Lobster Thermidor. This classic French dish is a symphony of succulent lobster meat, gently sautéed with a blend of aromatic ingredients, then reunited with its shell, generously cloaked in a velvety, cheese-infused sauce, and baked to golden perfection. Served alongside are tender baby pearl potatoes and a vibrant mesclun salad, harmonising textures and flavours to create a truly exceptional dining experience.
Starters that Set the Stage
For those eager to embark on this epicurean journey, the starters promise an equally enticing prelude. Diners will have the choice between two exquisite options:
- Wild Mushroom Tart with Rocket and Smoked Oil:

- Butternut Soup with Whipped Feta, Pumpkin Seed, and Crispy Kale:
- A velvety emulsion of roasted butternut squash, elevated by the creamy richness of whipped feta. Topped with crunchy pumpkin seeds and crispy kale, this starter is a harmonious blend of comforting warmth and vibrant textures.
A Decadent Dessert Selection
The sweet crescendo of the evening is marked by an indulgent array of desserts, each a masterpiece in its own right:
