Review on The Sisters Jordanhill
Jacqueline and Pauline O'Donnell (the 'sisters') have become one of Glasgow's gastronomic star turns since opening their eponymous restaurant not far from Jordanhill station.
Scottish produce is at the heart of things culinary, and supplies are procured from near and far. Scallops and creel-caught langoustines are delivered daily from Ullapool by Mark ('the fish man'), lamb and beef are from Smitton Farm in Dumfries & Galloway, while organic vegetables are provided by a friend of the family.
The result is a feast of patriotic dishes produced with flair and gusto: Perthshire wood pigeon with Charlie McLeod's black pudding and caramelised apple, chicken breast with Dingwall haggis and whisky mustard cream, fillet of sea bream on chive mash with roast tomatoes and herb dressing, for example. After that, expect flag-waving desserts such as staunchly traditional cranachan or warm rice pudding with fruit compote, plus Scottish cheeses with home-baked oatcakes.
The sisters now have a second string to their bow at 36 Kelvingrove Street, close to the Art Gallery.
