In spite of my almost 50 years on this earth, I have never once engaged in so called ‘Michelin-starred’ dining. Don’t get me wrong – I have had some amazing meals. But what I’m talking about here are those multiple-course tiny morsels of edible art prepared by some world class chef; those meals that span an entire evening and require taking out a second mortgage once the bill arrives.
I guess the frugal Scot in me just can’t justify spending several hundred dollars on one meal when so many people are literally starving. However that is not to say that I haven’t been intrigued by such menus or fantasized about such an evening out. Take this description of a food writer’s visit to one of Great Britain’s most highly regarded restaurants. Wouldn’t it be fun, just one time, to be served a meal from there?
What is your most memorable meal, haute cuisine or otherwise?
