70 Three-Michelin-Star Dining Connoisseur Raves About Cumbria's L'Enclume: 'A Gastronomic Masterpiece'

Monday, April 1, 2024

Alexander Varga, co-owner of a Michelin-starred restaurant in Hungary and a globetrotter with a passion for three-Michelin-starred establishments, extols the virtues of Cumbria's L'Enclume.

Founded by head chef Simon Rogan in Cartmel's medieval village on the Lake District border, this three-Michelin-star eatery has won Varga's praise amongst an impressive roster of dining experiences.

He's dined at 70 such establishments worldwide, including Heston Blumenthal's Fat Duck – and L'Enclume ranks among the best.

In his enchanting video documenting the meal (with over 200,000 views), Varga offers thoughtful insights into each dish's intricacies.

For a price tag of £290 per head, including tasting menu, select wine pairing, and extras, Varga was left with an unforgettable dining experience.

Each new flavor experience at L'Enclume met and even exceeded Varga's high hopes, resulting in a pleasantly surprised response.

The user raved about the king oyster mushroom being exceptional, which he enjoyed alongside a 2006 Charles Heidsieck Blanc de Millenaires Champagne.

Although Varga wished for a more serious wine pairing, L'Enclume's exceptional menu, countryside location, and commitment to farm-to-fork concept set it apart as an unparalleled culinary journey.
