2. Sea Urchin Cronut at Bounty
It might look like an innocent, unassuming piece of pastry, but Bounty’s Valentine’s Day cronut is topped with a twist – a caramelised layer of sea urchin meant to evoke crème brulee. It’ll likely make for a memorable amuse bouche ahead of a meal that’ll include butternut squash soup with stuffed squid, a hibiscus flower sorbet & slow-braised lamb ribs with beetroot confit.
