Home.......huh.

Not one of you guessed correctly.

No winners then,

except LMM and I of course!

I mean there's food and then there's Gordon Ramsay food...

and LMM and me...

I started with the...

Ravioli of Dorset blue lobster and salmon poached in a lemongrass bisque, basil vinaigrette

and then...

Roasted John Dory and sautéed langoustines, violet artichokes, pink fir potatoes, carrot and cardamom velouté

and finished with...

Assiette of rhubarb, crumble, syllabub and mille feuille

but I didn't leave it there I also had espresso and chocolates (for an extra fiver!)

But I'm all beat out now. I'll spill the, expensive, beans tomorrow on our trip to Claridges. There is so much to tell. Ramsay himself was there. Doesn't get much more exciting than that for a waiter like me. Well that said, I did get pretty excited in the science museum and then again at Tate and the TV in our hotel had internet access so you can imagine my joy at that!

I'm easily excited.

Oh and a word of advice for anyone planning a trip away. If you decide to chuck out all the perishable food in your fridge before you go, chicken breasts etc go ahead and throw it right out into the bin outside. Don't do what I did and leave it inside the back door so that when you come home your house smells like there are bodies under the floor.

Not pleasant......

Blogger's been playing donkey dick with comments all night. And I'd left such witty ones earlier on the tail of the previous post.

Look at the fancy weather you had for your trip too. Back to the grind now though.
Where was my 2 for 6?

Twenty Major said...

Fuck, that was my guess but I got distracted before I could leave my comment.

The starter was a guess but I knew you'd have the John Dory.

yoyo said...

My guess was actually that you were going to look at the prices of the restaraunt, laugh hysterically, go have tea at MdDonalds and then go buy a Ferrari.

Dont suppose you happen to know if they had any vacancies there, did you?
(Claridges or McDonalds, I dont discriminate in times of cash shortage)

I went to Gordon's restaurant in Dubai in September, the food was divine. Manuel I would like your opinion on something.

I am allergic to eggs and told the waiter and he was amazing with filling me in on what I could and couldn't have. Anyways, for my starter I ordered the scallops and they had a dollop of caviar on top. Just as I was about to tuck in, he came over and stopped me because he wanted to check the extent of my "egg" allergy. Seriously? Conscientious or taking the piss?

Medbh said...

What a delightful dinner!
Yum.

I have a habit of putting stinky stuff in the freezer until the trash gets picked up. There's nothing else in there but ice cubes and waffles so it works.

Manuel said...

bbb: not til sunday......wouldn't want to be in my section on sunday night....

twenty: it was sublime......

yoyo: didn't notice but hey give it a go.......mates rates?

fmc: awh thanks!

mimi: Conscientious for sure. I mean they really do take care of you and at the same time they really don't want to get sued....

medbh: it was just magnificent......I was just being lazy.....plus my freezer is full of ice cream n lollies......

Anonymous Boxer said...

Welcome home, traveler! I have a little crush on Gordon Ramsay and I'm looking forward to the opening of his new restaurant in Los Angeles... I will be there!

Please give me news on him; was he screaming in the kitchen? Throwing things? Details, details.....

eguinan said...

Don't you just love London? Overpriced as it is. (although, and I know it's no consolation to you, the pound v euro thing is working out rather well for some of us.

I'm moving there this year. Can't wait.

eguinan said...

Goddamn it! My Blogger profile is long dead. I'm here!!!!

Manuel said...

boxer: I think I have too......eh um er I mean I'd like to hang with him and shout at chefs......

eguinan: it was brilliant....we were staying in kensington and chelsea which was rough ......or maybe not.....

I knew it was you.......

jen said...

Yep - I just got back and all the veggies at the bottom of the fridge have turned into garbage soup...

savannah said...
