Memories are made of this.  What a night!!  Richard flew his head chef from Lindsay House in for the preparation of the feast (prep took two whole days).  Then Richard himself arrived like a maelstrom.  He was the boss and we were the boys.  Oysters with a sublime Vietamenese dressing, creamy cauliflower soup with Helvick shrimp and almonds, lamb’s sweetbreads, kidneys and liver served with buttermilk shoulder of lamb – simple food said Richard – by God, there was nothing simple about it.  A quivering elderflower jelly with summer berries to follow and the rest of the memories remain precious to the lucky few.  Thank you Richard!

The Chef’s Table Menu has really taken off in the cookery school.  Tonight there is a 40th Birthday Party having it, last Sunday we had a lovely family Christening.  Took a few pics tonight before kick-off of the dining room set up.  It looked really great and by the sounds of things below, the party is off to a great start!!
