    Chocolate soil. I hate "soil" and chocolate soil sounds like something unpleasant you'd find in a bucket.

    And liver? Yuk.

    Liver is very good for you. It is particularly delicious cooked with bacon, onion gravy and mashed potato. Yum.
    The poached pear and chocolate soil looked very tempting, but I agree the term "soil" is not very appetising.

    Soil. That's just stupid. It looked pretty rank too.

    We had some very pleasant liver, mash and bacon last weekend. Soil, in this context, is a word that's on a par with 'moist' IMO.

    The chocolate soil in question looked like very dry shavings to me. Not at all appetising.

    I hate them referring to chocolate 'soil' as if it is an actual thing..

    Chocolate soil? The pretentiousness is laughable.

    An awful lot of things that are very good for you are also not very tasty!

    We had 'soil' at our wedding meal... turned out it was crumbs.

    Had a meal yesterday... wooden boards and a piece of paper under the food. With their logo all over it... like I might not remember where I was eating.

    I hate meals served on anything but plates! You can't really put wood in the dishwasher,therefore I don't trust it to be clean enough.

    And cutlery on slate is a horrible noise.

    Here's another vote for proper plates.

    Chocolate bread an butter pudding with hazelnuts. I think I might make my own version of that. Yum.

    Loved the puddings. You can't go wrong with lemon and blueberries. The passion fruit filled profiteroles looked divine. Even Jo's soufflé and fruit looked tempting.

    Can't say I fancied the undercooked venison and pork.

    Yes, I thought they looked as though they had merely been passed through a warm kitchen. There's rare and there's that venison and pork. I'd be feared of being unwell after that.

    Venison is usually served rare, no problem there, however 'pink' pork is a recent trend and not usually a problem.
