Pancake Day!

Ok, I think I've eaten too many pancakes! With cheese, with nutella and with good old lemon and sugar - yum! Oh well, it's traditional and it's only once a year. Now do I have the will power to give up anything for Lent?!?

Fun and food at the seaside

We just had a great long weekend in Cornwall. Went to the Fifteen Cornwall restaurant for their tasting menu which was fantastic. There was a veggie option for each course - two options for the starter and pasta course, more to choose from for the main and dessert. I'm torn for a favourite between the mozzarella salad that featured blood orange instead of tomato, or the gorgeous squash risotto with sage leaves. The photo I've chosen those is the "amuse-bouche"! Two little spoonfuls per person with a special veggie version for me. Great start to a really good meal.

The only complaint would be that the main course was a bit too large - I would expect something smaller from a "tasting" menu - but with seven courses over three hours it's not surprising we were feeling full! Altogether a very satisfying evening and a great location too.
