I visited the Black Hoof again recently and had a mostly great meal. One dish however, sweetbreads with peas and chanterelles, I thought really missed the mark. It sounded great on the black board, very seasonal, chanterelles yum. But the sweetbreads were heavy and flavourless, peas and chanterelles just dripping in butter (often a good thing, but to much here). The dish was very heavy and monochromatic, and I was so looking forward to it. Sigh.
Has anybody else tried this dish? What did you think? What are good sweetbreads supposed to taste like?
