I just read an article about Fat Duck in my US Vogue issue for July. Pretty cool. Someday I'll make it there.
I love that place, been there 3 times and it never dissapoints but always cleans out your wallet. Just finished an excellent book on Heston Blumenthal (Chef at the Fat Duck) and was amazed that he has no formal training. I still think fondly of the The Duck confit/pea shooter presented to me in a test tube a few years back.
My father and I ate there this Spring. Bray is gorgeous and very romantic. Food was very interesting~ would I return? Not necessarily~ it was hardly the best food I've eaten~ especially for those prices. However, it was definitely the most unique food I had ever tasted, and the palate cleanser that stood out was a sorbet dipped in liquid nitrogen. Without wine we spent more than $400. I would try the tasters menu~ "when in Rome..." and all that. Bon Appetit!
