Memories of Taste.... the aftermouth

With the invitation was also a questionnaire, sent to engage, excite and entice the reader/potential eater into remembering, revisiting and reminiscing about their memories of taste. And so they did. Which was a massive relief for me as the responses were what the menu was to be created around!

Ribena was there, potato waffles made a few appearances (which lead to numerous experiments the main conclusions of which were: 1) its the crunch that creates the potato waffle experience, 2) that crunch does not belong in an ice cream- its just a bit weird) Chicken kievs, choc concrete, marshmallows, some interesting Jewish meals (which unfortunately were a tad too late but have inspired a future dining experience) crumble and strawberry yoghurt, to name but a few.

So I set to work and created the menus (see below kids one side, adults on the other) and had lots of fun. I think the diners did too. Lots of positive feedback, awesome.
