Courtesy of Mary's father, I tonight ate the following:

1. Wild Mushroom and Bergamot Soup

2. Roast Saddle of Wiltshire Rabbit with Foie Gras and Summer Truffle Risotto ("Game may contain lead shot.")

3. Chocolate Pudding with Spearmint and Pistachio Ice Cream

This all at Rules, supposedly the oldest private restaurant in London.

Oh, you just HAD to post the bunny, didn't you? ;-) Gosh that sounds like an extraordinary meal (proof there is good food in Britain!). I gave up foie gras, but I make sure I complain about that choice every time I see it on the menu (it is one of my favorite things in the whole world). As for thumper...well, I've got a cuteness issue. How was the soup? It sounds wonderful (I love bergamot).

It isn't just that I'm a vegetarian, but this post is seriously dark and twisted (especially the picture of rabbit). Or maybe it's that just 5 posts ago you waxed on about rodents you have loved... Colorful to say the least!

I hope your trip is going well. Oscar is doing quite well, btw.

It's true, Friskie my old pet rabbit would be displeased with me!

I will say that I don't think I had ever had foie gras before (and, when ordering, completely forgot about the whole goose torture thing) but having had it, I don't see what the big fuss is. Tasted okay, but nothing special. Definitely not worth the goose torture.

But the mushroom soup was AMAZING. Absolutely delicious.
