    My daughter's new fella has been offered a job here. Whaddya think?

    Moss? Got the old taste buds going?
    Yolk. Gorse flowers. Manouri (???). Dittander. Oooh, lovely onion ash. Yum.

    Are they taking the mick? The reviews are glowing. Do people have more money than sense? Is it me being unadventurous?

    Willow catkins and gorse flowers? Sounds like the pretend food we used to cook up as children.

    Oooooh, looks scrumptious to me. The food, not the prices!

    They try to forage wherever possible. Which I applaud. But the price!

    I think I'd rather forage for myself!

    sea buckthorn seems very fashionable just now

    I was served "apple, crumble, ice cream" the other day which I thought would be relatively straightforward - oh no! - it was apple jelly, weird nutty "soil" and a sort of vanilla toffee ice cream with nuts in

    I had to send it back - I don't eat jelly

    It's like bae... I'm only hearing about it now.

    You're so hip flere!

    I don't eat jelly. Does that make me hip too?

    Willow catkins? Really? No, I'm a total square.

    This is one of their signature dishes. (To be shared between two btw).

    Is that a carrot? To share? :eek:.
    I'm not a fussy eater by any stretch of the imagination and have no problem with 'adventurous' cuisine but I really wouldn't fancy eating much on that menu. It's trying too hard to be edgy.

    Would you cut it lengthwise, do you suppose?
  13. grumpydogwoman

    grumpydogwoman Star commenter

    For fairness I'd cut it across the middle first. Then lengthwise.

    More difficult if there are three diners. Then you have TWO carrots.

    Jeeze. That must eat into their profits!

    This just isn't getting me going.

    (Except perhaps to the loo?)
  16. Lascarina

    Lascarina Star commenter

    That would choke me.

    Looks like they charge extra for plates, too.

    I assume it's the moss with vinegar and cheese. :eek:

    Well, this is odd.

    @nomad, eh??? On a thread about nomad. ;)o_O

    What's manouri and dittander? (Manouri auto corrected to malnourished!). I'd try sea buckthorn, ricotta in herbs and chestnut crumble. The rest, not so much.
