A tasting menu that genuinely serves to showcase the talents of a brilliant chef, perfectly balanced, carefully timed and matched with expertly chosen wines? (… T)hat’s exactly what’s on offer at Cassis, the smart Provencal bistro in Knightsbridge where I enjoyed a meal that, on reflection, was probably the single best restaurant meal I ate in 2012…

We’ll happily revisit Cassis time and again for its crispy farmhouse chicken: thick, juicy rounds of Devonshire chook that are sous-vided, rolled in herbs, pan-fried and then oven-baked. This triple cooking makes for an outrageously tasty dish…

Abela knows what he’s doing and most things are as they should be. You can count on great ingredients that are well-sourced, cooked well and a stonking, even flustering, wine list to go with it all…

No one who truly empathises with food would serve magret de canard, or choose red cabbage to accompany guinea fowl or use mangetouts crossed with batons of celery as its garnish…
