On Saturday evening we went to Chef Claude Bosi's restaurant for dinner to celebrate a little anniversary. It was everything one would expect from a two Michelin starred establishment with several extra delicious surprises among our six course surprise tasting dinner along with matching wines.

Along with a glass of champagne we were served cashew and peanuts with sea salt and vinegar powder, but before we had too many, some canapés arrived - choux pastries filled with oozing cheese, and savoury biscuits and little cups filled with tasty creams.
Then came a tiny biscuit cone filled with truffle ice-cream sprinkled with crushed sesame and topped with a sherry reduction. Just a little taste, but intense.
This was our menu, which was only given to us as we left - so every course was a complete surprise before it was served.  One course missing from the images is the Goosnargh Duck, which was eaten before I realised we hadn't taken a photo! Also missing is the little shot glass filled with Meadowsweet Panna Cotta topped with a Golden Delicious apple jelly.
