Looking for food for thought?

For a birthday girl, in pictures.

Last night, one special birthday girl was well and truly celebrated. There was even a quiz about her and a spectacular Queen of Sheba Cake (which we cannot take credit for). Always intrigued by new cake ideas, a quick search reveals via The Sweetest Kitchen "that the recipe originally appeared in Julia Child's first book, The French Chef. She says it was the first French cake she had ever eaten... and she had never forgotten it. " We hope our guests had an unforgettable cake and an unforgettable time!

Here is the feast:


To welcome Quails' eggs, Serrano ham.

 

To amuse Spicy parsnip, apple and pear soup, apple crisps.


To start Roasted beef or sweet potato, pear, chicory salad with homemade honey and walnut soda bread.




To follow Tandoori spiced lythe {or chicken}, cucumber raita, basmati rice, flat bread.


 

To finish Chocolate and lemongrass mousse with lime shortbread.
