My worst nightmare has come true (besides losing any more teeth due to malnutrition, this is true by the way and I am looking for a kind tooth fairy!!!) . I have been invited to what sounds like the most gorgeous and wonderful event in the world, a demonstration then eating of fruits de mer at L’Ortolan and it clashes with another event where I am eating. Do you have any idea how hard it was to do the decent thing and say no to this. Fruits de mer, my third favourite food group. I ate Jersey last year just in oysters, scallops, mussels, lobsters, prawns and squid. Jersey was left dry. We have been asked not to return. Yet I have just turned down this amazing event at L’Ortolan, a place I am desperate to visit and review. Please, dear reader, be proud of me and feel for the terrible wrench I have in my heart and the space in my stomach.
