British cuisine - just to prove that's not an oxymoron

I'm supposed to be eating there in August.... Hmmmmm some of his dishes are so totally off the wall that I'm not sure about the taster menu at just under a hundred quid a head!

Well, I'll report back after my 'experience' (meal just doesn't seem enough to describe it, does it?)

I read about The Fat Duck awhile ago--what an impressive story! I'm not sure if I'd be too excited about the food, either (I don't tend to be TOO adventerous with food, especially when I'm spending a lot!) so I can't wait to hear about your experience, Ishbel!

Fish and chips is about as far as I can be dragged down the British path. Good Luck, and I hope you enjoy the experience.

Otter, if you eat meat pies, roast beef, lamb with mint sauce, hearty casseroles, roasted potatoes, fruit pies etc..... you've certainly already ventured much further down the British path than fish and chips....

I wish you luck Ishbel. I married a pretty good "Pommie Dish", & there's no competition from that lot.

Meat & three veg is about my limit for the pommie cuisine, or a pork pie.
