our friend's lunch set up looked like a magazine spread. there was a festive drink to start, followed by the plumpest most delicious scallops I've had in a very long time. lunch was a vegetarian affair and we had yummy nut loaf with homemade beetroot relish, a nigella butter themed potato, parsnip and porcini gratin and greens. the nut loaf was my favourite, it was like surprisingly like meatloaf!
the star of the show was the girdle buster - an ice cream cake of sorts with a super thick base of two kinds of biscuit, two kinds of chocolate followed by an ice cream layer and then a whisky caramel. it was so amazing. sadly we finished the leftovers we were sent home with earlier tonight.
