The Krug Room at The Dorchester, Corrigan's, Texture, Mangal Ocakbasi, Rasa, Brindisa, Roast, Canteen, Wagamama's, Arbutus, Umu, Pearl
Maldon Oysters with Lanson Noble Cuvee 1998 Champagne, Joselito Jamon de Jabugo with Tio Pepe Fino, white asparagus from Navarra with Vina Tondonia 1990 white Rioja, Lentejas con chorizo with Castillo Ygay Rioja Gran Reserva, miso blackened cod with Burklin Wolf Riesling Grosses Gewachs, well hung t-bone steak with a great red Burgundy, selection of smelly French cheeses with a dry Madeira, chocolates and Islay malt whisky. If I wasn't already about to die, I would be after all that…
eating, cooking, drinking, reading, singing. Preferably all at the same time.
