Monday 15 September - Mary's Birthday

The view at The Star in the City overlooking the river Ouse and the museum gardens in York.

The Veuve Cliquot champagne.
Aaack, they ran out of New Zealand Sauvignon blanc! Nil desperandum, they had a lovely bottle of Sancerre.
Bread was served in a flat hat.

Seared sea scallops with Yorkshire pork cheek with cauliflower purée & Picallilli vinaigrette.


The mains. Risotto of local estate shot red legged partridge, braised chestnuts, wilted curly kale, Wensleydale cheese & truffle oil.
Duck with chip shop chips & wilted spinach.

A surprise birthday platter of mignardises.
Honeycomb ice cream & lemon thyme & honey ice cream. (Oops, started eating it before remembered to take picture).
Cheeseboard of local cheeses. (One piece already eaten).
Topped off with a decaf cappuccino.
Then we literally staggered home from this awesome meal
