Last night was our Christmas party. There’s only Geri and I, but everyone deserves a party — and by party, I mean a lovely meal. We enjoyed another stunning tasting course at the enjoyably unpretentious Alchemilla, our first visit since they earned a Michelin star. Our seven course tasting menu:
tenderstem broccoli, satay
squid, squash, pork belly
pot roast cabbage, oyster, buttermilk, berwick edge
We also enjoyed several small "snacks" and delicious bread and butter. The food is always a talking point but last night it was exceptional. That pigeon; the plate looked like a meticulously organised nature table and tasted extraordinary. I washed everything down with two cans of Magic Rock's Saigon Fog IPA, packed with lychee goodness. Party hard.
