Ma Cuisine is a model of simple sophistication. Fresh ingredients and traditional recipes are handled simply and satisfying with no homage paid to the latest food fads. John McClement's Ma Cuisine French bistros are well known by locals in the leafy suburbs of Twickenham, Kew and Barnes. The simplicity of the food is reflected in the understated décor which consists of plain painted walls, framed poster prints and slightly 1970s plastic table cloths. Inspired by 1950s French food, a starter of asparagus salad comes with an excellent hollandaise and the wild mushroom risotto is equally accomplished. Mains are simpler still. A cassoulet of confit duck and Toulouse sausage is cooked to perfection. From the fish dishes, wing of skate comes with a tasty, tangy caper and lemon butter sauce. The accompanying vegetables, crisp green beans and potatoes dauphinoise are plainly presented but winningly handled. Desserts are equally satisfying, the petite but decadent pot au chocolat being particularly good. This was hearty French fare without the fuss at exceptionally reasonable prices. Ma Cuisine is something of a local institution and the compact dining area is regularly packed most evenings.
