    Liz, I’m rendered speechless. Such gastronomic delights in Part I of your foodie fairy tale… dashing off to Part II now. (And I’ll probably bounce back and forth between them for the rest of the day!) Swoon…

    Wow what can I say, so pleased you put this together as I am a friend of Debs and asked her about her experience at the Fat Duck, her reply was to read your blog. Thank you so much for taking me on this tour. Well done. I can see why Deb could not put the experience into words.

    WOW! Amazing! One of the Berra bloggers was headed to The Fat Duck, but no blog yet, so its cool to actually get a look at the experience. Loving your dress, hottie!!! And the Marron, it looks delicious.

    I will say tho, I personally am rather over the degustation style menus, I think working at the Press Club I have been overly spoilt with that kind of dining experience. These days I much prefer a main meal with minimal ingredients. But one dining experience that does stick with me is Vue de Monde, I was a newbie chef and my work sent me down to eat there, first time dega dining too. I tried truffles and the wines were matched beautifully. I also remember thinking WOAH, work totally just paid $450 for my dinner.

    Long winded comment. Hope you are well lovely one. Happy Monday. Headed over to read part 2 now. 🙂

      Wow Vue de Monde dinner does sound wonderful… I really like the degustation because I am so terrible at picking what to eat, so here you don’t get a choice…but I understand what you are saying 🙂 Very happy Monday as I’ve finished my TAX for another year 🙂 Have a fantabulous week! Liz xx
      PS… you can never have a long winded comment on a blog babe! 🙂

    If you had difficulty writing this post, imagine the difficulty I’m having in writing a comment! I don’t know where to start. I agree that this is definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity and I’m so glad you made the effort to get there. You did well with those ballot odds! What an incredibly innovative and talented man he is. I just love the Limogue plates. So far, I think my favourite course is the icy poles because the presentation is just gorgeous xx

    Wonderful description of your evening & the meals!!! Wish I had of known about the lottery but glad I got to experience it via you. Looking forward to next instalment. Anthony & I had the most amazing meal with matching wines at Miettas years a go. Can’t even remember what we ate but it was the best! And we felt like we ate & drank a lot but didn’t leave thinking we had. We floated out!

    Oh I so enjoyed reading about your Fat Duck experience Liz, it brought back all the amazing tastes and memories I have of going to The Fat Duck in the UK last year. It was basically the same menu, a couple of dishes were different, so far! Can’t wait to read part 2 🙂

      Thanks Alison… We I’m thinking that after it is renovated that Heston will be thinking up new and exciting things to make… so London is on the list at some stage 🙂 Thanks for dropping in and saying hi! Liz xx
