London Lunch

After the seeing the chocolatier's windows in the previous post, my walk carried on along the road to the Berkeley Hotel, where, after my last delicious lunch at Marcus Wareing's restaurant, I had to go back for more LOL!  This time I took my Mum along for her birthday treat.  
Pickled egg dip with pork scratchings - yum!

Speciality caramelised butter (right)

The specially made gluten free bread rolls
for my Mum!  The pastry chef even 
emailed me the recipe when we asked for it!

The restaurant's Friday tradition
Fish & Chip Soup - as good as ever!

Ballotine of duck and fois gras - delish!

Poussin 3 ways with turnips and
spinach - mmmmm!

Pre dessert of meringue yoghurt with
fruit and crumble.

Mum's gluten free chocolate and rhubarb
dessert with granita.
It was very rich - too much really!!

My egg custard tart with blood orange, yoghurt 
and granita.  The custard tart is the famous tart 
as made for the Queen in a competition 
by Marcus.

A birthday surprise - apple layers with jelly.

Some Columbian Chocolate ganache to finish.

Truffles to take home.


  1. Dear SA,

    It all looks delicious ~ I'm hungry now!

    How lovely that they made such a fuss of Mum.


  2. Hi PP - yes it was lovely! SAx
