Birthday

It was my birthday on the weekend and it was all a bit food themed - unsurprisingly :)
I went out to dinner on Saturday night at a lovely little French restaurant in a nearby village. It is small little place that seats about 25-30 people at a stretch - and it was fabulous. Great attention to detail, friendly service, and not at all pretentious. My starter was a wonderful trio of crab things (the crab collection they called it) which included a crab bisque, a crab galette, and smoked salmon wrapped around crab with ginger and coriander mayonnaise - all of them lovely.
The pear tarte tatin for dessert was incredible.
But my lovely friends also bought me a gift voucher for a one-day cooking course at a nearby cooking school - after much drooling over the web page I have decided on the patisserie & puddings day - I might try and recreate that pear tarte tatin :)

By the way, I wondered what you ate for main course at your birthday dinner?

Hi toffee apple,
Sorry I've been away - I've been in Australia for the last few weeks - and unfortnately the blog has fallen to the wayside.
Hopefully more to come shortly
