  • (1888PressRelease) July 15, 2010 - Temperatures may be rising but the award-winning 18Fifty5 restaurant at Copthorne Sheffield Hotel ( is keeping it cool with the launch of a new summer menu with daring flavour combinations.

    The multi award-winning 18Fifty5, most recently titled Best Newcomer at the Westside Sheffield Restaurant Awards, has used seasonal produce in its adventurous summer dishes, whilst maintaining the restaurant's reasonable prices.

    Starters include poached and roasted breast of wood pigeon with Yorkshire rhubarb, a rillette of the leg and a raspberry brioche; and butter poached lobster tail and claw with watermelon, avocado, carrot & bread wafers.

    To follow, main courses include black olive oil poached monkfish tail with courgette,
    tomato, couscous, cucumber & basil sauce vierge; roasted best end of "Devonshire Estate" lamb with fennel, orange, potato bundles and lavender jus; and red pepper cannelloni with ratatouille, watercress pesto, rosemary & green olive focaccia.

    The summer scorcher is completed with a selection of desserts including strawberries as jam, granite, diced, sorbet, dried and juice with balsamic & black pepper; bitter chocolate pavé with apricot, ginger & goats milk; and elderflower parfait with pistachio & lemon.

    Head Chef Ernst Van Zyl, who has worked in many high profile AA Rosetted restaurants including the five-star Hilton Hotel on Park Lane, London, created the menu to demonstrate his passion for adventurous flavour combinations, while keeping the menu light and fresh.

    Ernst said: "This menu looks great on the plate as it uses high quality produce, but still remains at an affordable price. As it's summer I've used light ingredients to keep diners cool and full of life and meals include some interesting taste sensations for the adventurous eater.

    "The seasonal and very much British ingredients will take people back to nature and I'm sure they will all be dreaming of tropical climates once they have finished their meals, whatever happens with the British weather!"
