Food Order

I note from the default food order that some people have items that are no longer on the menu. I have therefore applied the following substitutions:

"Cornish crab salad with ciabatta toasts" >> "Spiced fish cake, Cornish crab mayonnaise, mustard" (affects Christopher, Mike, Rebecca & Tony)

"Oak smoked salmon with beetroot, orange and horseradish" >> "Chapel and Swan oak smoked salmon, horseradish crème fraîche, capers" (affects Dave)

Please say if you want something different.

I have heard a rumour that JK will be ordering the same as me for his main course.

Please do get the order in at least a week before we meet so he and I can be sure of getting our special order steaks.

I've decided I will stay in London after this event - I don't want to rush a vintage as classy as 1966

Please note that I have applied all of these upgrades to the order for this tasting and the default order. If that is not wanted please let me know what should be on the default.
