20th Anniversary Dinner
And so I found Chillingworth Road Restaurant. We hardly ever get to eat out, so I thought we should do it in style. They offer 5, 7 or 9 course "tasting" menu. We went for the full 9 courses. And we were glad we did. We had a very special night out.
A quote from their website: With a vision toward fresh seasonal ingredients and meals that deliver on both flavour profiles and healthy living, we aim to take you on a journey that will expand both your mouth and mind.
And we had a wonderful journey.
I took the photo below off their website of the dinning room. So elegant.
This was absolutely delicious. Things that we would never naturally think to order, but it was Brendon's favourite of the night.
The tables are set as above. Once you are finished your soup and roll / GF toast, the side plate is then taken away and 3 more sets of cutlery arrive (if you are going with all 9 courses). So you then have 5 sets. These are for the mains.
So if I count the plate that the soup cup was on, as well as the side plate for the toast, we had 20 plates at our table this evening. Fitting for our 20th anniversary. :-)
We had now finished the 5 sets of cutlery and were brought 3 more sets. I knife and small fork, a spoon, and a spoon and fork.
So a very special evening indeed. We are thankful to Rachel for holding the fort at home so that we could enjoy this time out.
