This weekend we were fortunate enough to be in the company of great friends for an evening of culinary adventure. We've known Clare and Nick for almost ten years. Every so often we have the opportunity to sample Nick's gourmet creations. Imagine being in a fancy restaurant, and having the chef cook especially (and only) for you. Twelve carefully designed courses to amaze our palates and intrigue our tastebuds. Mmmmmmm...
The Place Setting
The Next Dessert
I could explain the courses, but I don't want to risk being inaccurate about the details. I know there were a lot of sauces, reductions, textures, tastes, gadgets and temperatures. There were also a lot of HOURS, and time spent shopping, thinking, and preparing. It's quite incredible, really, to witness Art in action. But best of all, being with people who are doing what they love to do - few times does it get much better than that. Cheers to you, Clare & Nick!
