Food, Glorious Food: The Meat Show: What Is Meat Fruit?: London’s Fruit Made Out of Chicken Meat – Eater



In this episode of The Meat Show, host Nick Solares continues his carnivore’s tour of London with a visit to Dinner by Heston Blumenthal. His mission is to take the famous meat fruit, a dish that Solares calls “one of the most unique dishes in all of meat eating.”

Meat fruit is essentially a liver parfait, wrapped in a mandarin orange flavored jelly, and shaped to have the exact size and texture of a mandarin orange. The appearance is a little uncanny. Chef Ashley Palmer-Watts explains how to eat the dish: “The balance of the gel is the right proportion […] When you spread it on the bread, you’re getting the condiment along with the parfait.” This particular dish was invented at Dinner by Heston, but it pays homage to a classic dish made of minced meat and shaped to resemble an apple. Palmer-Watts elaborates, “we always start looking backwards into history, we take inspiration from that.”
