For those of us who never will: Stu_N reports on The Fat Duck experience

Whatever your opinion of the food and experiences Stu describes of his important birthday visit to The Fat Duck I would merely recommend that you simply revel in the sumptuous way in which he describes the whole experience in magnificent detail.

Best food writing I have read in a long while. Almost makes me wonder if we shouldn't do this sometime. Then again, The Fat Duck isn't exactly local to us... and I'm not sure how long it would take us to save up...

Sounds more like one of those $385 tasting menues here, but more with the wine. Never expect that for England.
It does sound like a nice way to spend an evening. Wonder if you still go away hungry?

Joe — my handy little currency converter tells me that the whole meal was slightly less than $385 per head, including the wine, and you don't go away hungry (or, indeed, sober).
