So this is 2008

So eight courses and a bottle of wine later it's 2008

That was six hours spent on a meal folks. It's almost a full working day!

There was prawns, lobster, scallops, sea bass, foie gras, truffle soup, ravioli, sorbet, beef, smelly sock cheese (alright I passed on that one), chocolate mousse, mango mousse, more sorbet, tropical fruits, little chocolates coffee. I may never eat again.

I am now off to sleep the sleep of the over indulged if I can find somewhere to put my stomach

Happy New Year everyone

It sounds wonderful and mouth-watering. I've been wondering how it all went.

Hope you found somewhere to put your stomach....that cracked me up!

Hope you've recovered from the meal - you would need six hours to get through that lot:) Happy New Year!

It's great isn't it?
We did the same and I'll post photos and description soon.
The band was 2 old codgers on accordion & saxophone, and when the saxophonist sang I knew he was the long lost husband of Margarita Pracatan.

Crumbs, that's an astounding amount of time to spend on eating - sounds fantastic though!

'Somewhere to put my stomach' made me laugh too... not that I know the feeling or anything... ahem.

Happy New Year XXX

Yes, but you did eat at least 5 portions of the richest chocolate mousse I have ever tasted!!! I left my stomach at the restaurant, I'll collect it when I start feeling hungry again!
