Birthday continued!

My lovely, beautiful friends Harriet and Theana told me on my birthday (July) that I'd have to wait until I got back up to uni for my birthday present. They said it was a surprise and that I'd love it.

They were so right. 

These guys are amazing. You should know by now that I love saturday morning kitchen/James Martin, and that I watch it like it's my religion. Well, the girls booked us a table at James Martin's restaurant - the Leeds Kitchen. When we got there some kind ladies took our jacket, and the girls said that we'd be going for the taster menu - 6 courses with wine. My goodness was I spoiled!!

James Martin new it was my birthday so he signed my card

cream of cauliflower soup

pressing of ham hock, celeriac remoulade and red wine shallot puree

pan fried fillet of mackerel with chargrilled asparagus and devilled butter dressing

slow cooked ox cheek with creamed potatoes and pot roasted vegetables
