More anniversary celebrations at Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck
Hope you’re all having fun in the sun. Our holiday is coming to an end now â€“ it’s been amazing, I can’t wait to share some photos with you all next week.
Before we went away, Ben took me to Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck restaurant in Bray, Berkshire. It was like nothing I’ve ever experienced before. It was such a unique evening, if you ever get the chance to go, you absolutely must.
The Fat Duck is nothing like a regular restaurant – it’s more like a show. The quirky staff are like entertainers and they come and explain what you’re about to eat. They take you on a journey â€“ they said ‘now you’re at sea’ and handed us a shells with iPods in them so we listened to the sound of the waves and then we were presented with fantastic fish dishes.
The presentation was just out of this world. Not only is it a real taste sensation but they try to tap into your other senses too. You think you’re eating one thing â€“ like an egg â€“ and your brain is totally prepared to eat egg and then it turned out to be something completely different. Once I’d cracked into it, the egg actually turned out to be chocolate!
The whole evening was just amazing, so memorable and a real treat too. We wanted to celebrate our first anniversary in style and we did exactly that!
Speak to you soon.
