I don’t think I’ve ever written a post that has had so many pictures in it. Come to think of it I don’t think I’ve ever been out for dinner and eaten more than 3 courses. On Tuesday evening I ate 5 courses and toyed with a bit of cheese. And yes, I have been to the gym since then.
I saw this little gem of an event at The Ship Wandsworth on Twitter and within minutes of their tweet about it going out I sent a long-winded e-mail telling them why I should get two tickets. I shan’t tell you what I said because it’s way too cheesy to be typed a second time!
I decided to surprise the boyfriend, and following a cloak and dagger rendezvous at Fulham Broadway and a bus ride we arrived at the Ship with him still thinking we were going to have a normal dinner – I also opted to pre-pay so he didn’t see the bill and tell me off for racking up yet more money on my credit card! We headed straight to the bar to pick our wines for the evening, we opted for a Beaujolais that would go with fish and meat. A rather good choice – even if I do say so myself.
- The pudding, I was not planning to like at all, I’m not a fan of almonds and I can’t abide cinnamon at all, but the ice cream was just gorgeous – it was beautifully sweet with not too much cinnamon. The cake was beautifully light with a surprise of amaretto flavour in there which was divine.The lovely Dhruv and Lee came in and answered several odd questions posed to them by the slighty inebriated group in front of them. And then, everyone left. Except 4 of us who half shared and half looked in dispair at a cheese platter – it was beautiful but we just couldn’t manage more than a slither of anything!!
