Fifty pounds for how many courses? And where are you based? If London, and the food is by a Michelin star chef, then no, I don't think that is too expensive.

When my husband and I go to our favourite restaurant in town (Edinburgh) we usually have 3 courses and one bottle of wine with perhaps a brandy or Calvados after dinner - it always costs us quite a bit more than 50 pounds per head

Enjoy your day.

I remember eating in a Chinese restaurant in Ulverston a couple of years back. I'm suspecting it won't be the venue?!

A friend of ours has a boat that he keeps at the Lakes. Don't get down there very often, but if we do make it down this summer, I may pay you a visit!

The *stars* are based on atmosphere, service and the quality of the food - not necessarily in that order. The Chef, while a drawing card, doesn't get the rating - it's the "Establishment", the team effort. You could put Michel Roux in a restaurant with a McDonalds staff and he's probably not going to get any *stars*!

It's all about a "dining experience" ...

But, you have a chance to cook with someone that worked in a star restaurant .... I'm jealous. They may not be the best - but they were trained by someone who knows a few things.

who decides what is michelin rated, and how often do they do their adjudication?

'Inspectors' visit the establishments under consideration or return visits for those restaurants which already have one or more stars.

They are supposed to be incognito, but I have heard that restaurants are often 'tipped off' about who might be an inspector!

CoG: Yes, I seem to recall the Chinese restaurant was called Jade something. It was OK, but nothing to write home about!

50 quid for six courses is CHEAP, even for a country area! Good luck with the day.
