A beautiful early Spring February Sunday in Oxford to visit a daughter and took her out for a slap-up lunch at the George Street Social. It was buzzy, busy, a bit grubby, obviously studenty and mildly uncomfortable. However, great service and had a great big yummy dish of a white bean stew with bacon, carrots, tomato & celery topped with a generous confit duck leg with a glass of decent merlot and I was very happy. Daughter had a vast plate of linguine with smoked salmon and a pint of lager (?!?) and that made her happy too. Good value and proper tasty food.
Husband and son off to Megeve tomorrow for a few days skiing and scoffing quantities of melted cheese in many forms – raclette, tartiflette, goat’s cheese salad and even smothered over the most scrumptious lasagne at the Radaz, their favourite cozy mountain haunt. Yes, I am envious but with everyone away I get a few days at home ALONE to focus on …. STOP PRESS!! Our new Deli. This has been a long time coming but we have at last found the right premises in the right place and the lease is being signed today. That’s all I can say at the moment but definitely more to follow…..!
