The Final - Menu for the Orient-Express.

That sounds like such a fragrant and summery menu of the sort that would be a delight at garden parties (I liked your description of 'ladies in white dresses' wondering through a garden).

I use both lemon and lime oil (a brand beginning with B - I don't know if that's the one that you favour). Both of them make such an impact to soups, dressings, puddings and ices when used with discretion (before now my husband made a pudding with a tsp of lemon oil and it burned our mouths it was so intense). However, I am rapidly running out of my present supplies and don't know when they will be available again (they seem to be pretty much out of stock in the UK).

I don't know how I missed the seasonal chocolates you mentioned from Cocomaya - maybe I should be less rigidly focused on their salt caramels and almost any combination of chocolate and hazelnut.

Thanks so much for showing us a menu. I did find your Swedish menu elsewhere as well and it's nice to see what the wretched programme producers didn't let us see!

I think your Orient Express menu was perfectly decent and restrained. If you have others menus you can show us, I for one would be happy to see them.

Congratulations! My favourites to win from the moment I saw your concept and signature dish.
I really like the way you keep it real with this blog, too.
We tried Russell's roast lamb / squash / pear recipe this weekend and it was simple and delicious, a definite keeper. Thank you!
