  1. Wow..I am totally speechless. Looks like an incredible meal
    Wood ash ice cream? How was that like?

  2. The stuff looks good and not quite as fussy as I would have imagined. Kind of hard to tell the style, though. A little all over the map.

  3. Jo, great photos. I’m really looking forward to trying the fish sticks, pork loin and veal sweetbreads, assuming those dishes are even on the menu at that point.

  4. Yum! Thanks for posting!

  5. Delicious looking photos! Fine art as food ~ exquisite!
