Paella for MTL

MTL had a white and dark chocolate dessert. It was delicious.

There were truffles - briefly - then back home, replete and happy.

Good morning, Pat and everyone.

I haven't had breakfast as yet...so you know what my tummy is saying after looking at this feast?

&^%$#@*&(??+)(*& - translation: FEED ME [with a few rude words added, I won't repeat].

Pat said...

Did he get to taste it?

Cheers.

Pat said...

Randall: I had ONE spoonful. Honestly - in the interest of research. And I gave him a bite of my lamb. I've just realised why the art work of the lambs bothered me as we were having coffee.

Love your closing statement...
" there were truffles - briefly - then back home, replete and happy."
So charmingly written...
cheers, parsnip

Pat said...

Parsip: yes I sometimes forget about the photo and demolish the model:)

rashbre said...

...but where were the truffles? Did they roll off the table?

Maggie said...

This looks so absolutely wonderful. Thanks for sharing the reunion with us.

Jimmy Bastard said...

Pat, the spread looks pure dead brilliant on the table hen. I'm glad they you and I both share an interest in fine dining.

I will admit to having a passion for a good unpasteurised stilton, and a fine port at the end of a meal.

Four Dinners said...

A wonderful place spoiled by shite modern decoration and crap food presentation.

HOW can you have beams and that awful lambs head thingy???

Please may I shoot the owners at your convenience?

Not averse to modern and old intertwined but I'm sorry. The decor is garbage.

So there.

Four Dinners said...

ps...

....and if anyone gave me a plate of food looking like those I'd throw the bloody things back at them.

So there.

Pat said...

Rashbre: off the table into my mouth:)

Maggie: I'm glad you approve.

Jimmy: I think the port and stilton is more a man thing but as we had some port in our Christmas hamper I'll give it a whirl and you a toast.

Four.D: oh dear now I'm wondering what the boys will think. I can understand having travelling mementoes around the house - I do it myself. I have to admit I found the lambs a bit Hannibal but otherwise was quite happy. You sound quite cross. There's always the Carew Arms to fall back on.

Whoo it looks like you had a good old feed. Just what is needed in this weather. I agree about the sheep, a bit twee. It is shame how many decent old pubs we've lost isn't it.

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Beautiful place and Beautiful Food, too! A perfect place to Celebrate your WONDERFUL Reunion, my dear.....Your 'starter' Deeeee-Licious! A lovely night out with a wonderfully exotic meal.....I'm with your MTL...Dessert just has to be chocolate! (lol)

Pat said...

anna: fingers crossed - most of our old pubs are surviving.

Naomi; so glad you like it and the starter was my favourite. I suspect if you had been there MTL would have had even less of his dessert.

Sheri said...

Yum. This looks like my kind of place! Now if I can just figure out how to jump across the ocean. . . .

lom said...

I love that rose, thats something I am going to have to try.

Pat said...

Sheri: good - that's two of us:)

LOM: good luck - the result is worth the effort.

Kanani said...

Rustic but fancy!
Looks great, Pat. Nice ambience!

Pat said...

Kanani: not exactly economising but it was a special day.
