In Topic: I Had A Dream . . . .

HA !!  Yes, it was way before I went to the Fat Duck - I was there in 2013.  the dream was in 2009.  Heston was not in my mind at that time.

 

The Melbourne restaurant is nowhere as good, unfortunately.  I haven't been there myself yet, so speak from 2nd hand experience.  I sent my mum there last Easter but she said the food/menu was ordinary - nothing spectacular or theatrical like the Fat Duck.  I suppose you go there with a huge expectation, so it wasn't fulfilled in any way.  She sent me pics of the meal.  Nothing like the Fat Duck, so just a good time away while he was renovating his restaurant in Bray.  Then he leaves Ashley (his head chef) over here, but he has nothing like the personality or enthusiasm of Heston, and I am guessing the menu shows that.

 

Can't think when I will pop over to London next . . . have just got two new puppies after my best furry friend passed away late 2015.  They are a handful but so lovely to be with.  They are too young at the moment for me to leave.

:)  Hello Jacky !! 

 

Sorry to hear you haven't been well, but very glad you have recovered.  Time gets away from us all, and months go past when we're all doing our own stuff that we forget to check up on our old friends. I'm sorry I thought you were just busy doing other things instead of thinking you might not be well.

 

Congrats on getting a paperback published !  Well done - I look forward to reading it soon.

 

There was a little drama earlier on, but all the posts from that have been deleted, and in short, the good fight was won. :wub:

 

Catch up with you soon - good to see you back here.

I, too, would love to see the pics, but get an error page when I click on the links.
