A Birthday dinner

OK, so today I am 44.  I am not going to give one of those daft macho posts about how I will kick old age in the arse.  It is coming to us all and we cannot stop it. I am sure we can delay and cut the risk of disease, but believe me one day you will be old and disabled or you will be dead.  Today is what you have.  NOW!  Live it right now and prepare for eternity.

Bah

Anyway tonight was a meal to celebrate my birthday and we went to Wedgewood on the Royal Mile, my favourite Edinburgh restaurant.  The dining room has been redecorated and refreshed recently and it has made a difference to the feel of the place.  (I'd recommend this place or Le Sept to a visitor to Edinburgh.  Le Sept is my regular lunchtime haunt, while Wedgewood is for special occasions)  It was   - as ever - well presented.  It all tasted fantastic too.

the amuse bouche


Rabbit terrine with piccalilli and sweetcorn ice-cream


Salmon, mash, shrimp, some green stuff
