    If you could order ANY two courses (main and pud) at a restaurant, what on earth would you choose???

    Today me and my lovely OH were offered the chance to attend the NewcastleGatesehead EAT! festival thing in a couple of weeks - every year they do something crazy and food related (eating in the dark last year - wierd!) and this year the lucky few who go along to the restaurant get to pre-order any two courses they want and a number of local professional chefs will cook it! Anything! anything in the world!

    Now I find it hard enough to choose from an actual menu, so I had to think long and hard about it, but eventually choose lamb cutlets with new pots and seasonal veggies (very sw friendly!) and for pud a dark chocolate torte with vanilla ice cream (not so sw friendly, but i Luuuurve rich dark choc puds!)

    So come on, if you go to do this, what would you choose.....?

    Main - mushroom and parmesan risotto with a side of seasonal salad veggies to break it down a little

    Pudding - anything chocolatey, I'm not fussy :D

    I remember seeing something on TV about the eating in the dark thing, very strange! I think I would choose something like a risotto too! Probably pea and asparagus with salmon mmm.. and for pudding I would have to have sticky toffee pudding and custard! :)

    louisedan - i was just the same! I was googling everything from nigella's website, to death row meals for inspiration! (death row meals are all just hamburgers and milkshakes, nothing very inspiring there!)

    It's really, really hard to decide isn't it? I'm sure when I'm there I'll wish I'd thought of what everyone else is having instead! x

    ooh can i change my mind? *been thinking loads about this one*


    my ultimate dream of a pudding would be a mountain (like loads) of Peanut butter flavour M&M's covered in Cookie Dough ben and jerry's ice cream *faints at the thought* I am so lucky these M&M's are only available in the US! (and at extortionate prices in the UK) they are my weakness!

    Oh my god I don't think I can decide. But right now I would love to have some seafood noodles from wagamama, complete with prawn toast and fried gyoza dumplings on the side. Then a melting middle chocolate pudding served with really good vanilla ice cream.
