The French Laundry & Bardessono
When Lisa and I realised we wouldn’t be taking a honeymoon immediately after our wedding, we knew we needed to do something special when we got back to San Francisco. Lisa suggested we try to get a table at the French Laundry , Napa’s 3-Star Michelin Restaurant . Apparently it’s really hard to get a table, but on our second attempt we managed to get a table for lunch. Our next dilemma was were to stay. Yountville is not know for cheap accommodation.  
Twickenham Stadium - Our Wedding Gift from Marriott
Having stayed at a Heathrow hotel once before, I vowed never to do it again. Simply put, they are cattle markets, and way over priced. So when I realised we needed a hotel before our return flight to San Francisco, I knew I needed an alternative, especially as it would be our first night alone as a married couple. A quick search revealed the Twickenham Marriott , about 10 minutes from Heathrow.  
Home Made Lincolnshire Sausages
Having watched the abysmal England game, we decided to make good use of the early morning and make some sausages. Specifically Lincolnshire sausages , which are our favourite, and impossible to buy in San Francisco. Armed with our new KitchenAid Mixer, we set out to try the relatively simple recipe: Ingredients 2.5 kg Pork, half fat half lean (5 lb) 400g Day old bread (15 oz) 50 Gram Salt (2 oz) 10 Gram Pepper (6 oz) 10 Gram Dried sage (6 oz) Directions Cut the pork into small cubes.  
Fat Duck Tuesday
On Saturday we are getting married. A day we’ve been looking forward to since we got engaged 18 months ago in Australia. We thoughts we’d finish off our life as single people in style with the Tasting Menu at the Fat Duck in Bray . The Fat Duck is legendary for having a crazy menu built from the ground up to challenge your senses. It certainly did not disappoint, it lived up to all the hype and was truly fantastic!
