The spoonful of oyster sorbet in particular was magical

I thought this, the Tasting Menu from a restaraunt called "The Fat Duck", was a joke. It reads like a Monty Python sketch. Some of the choices:

  • Snail Porridge
  • Salmon Poached with Liquorice
  • Mango and Douglas Fir Puree
  • Smoked Bacon and Egg Ice Cream

Crazy stuff. But, I was wrong; it's a real place. And not only is it a real place...
    The Fat Duck Restaurant in Bray, Berkshire was described by a global panel of 600 chefs, food critics and restaurateurs, as the Best Restaurant on the Planet. (here)

Well then. I should get out more.
