Happy Birthday Calum


Happy Birthday Calum, originally uploaded by ccgd.

Well it was a few days ago, but Ruth took us all out to Sutor Creek on Saturday night. Magnus's cycling pal Hamish Creber was up for a few days from Edinburgh, and our Hamish's girlfriend Kyrene came over from Fortrose.

The meal and the crack were great, it was one of those nights when all the guests were neighbours or pals, and the staff all old friends. Now I never eat a pudding - I'm a double espresso type of guy - but the staff insisted that I would "like to share Ruth's so I'd better have a spoon".

Then Andrea, the chef - surprised me with this pudding, and then everyone in the place sang Happy Birthday...

It was great and I was quite touched.

Afterwards it occurred to me that Sutor Creek was the sort of restaurant that if you were on Holiday in France, Italy or Spain, and if you had stumbled in, and found that all the customers and staff knew each other, and that that the chef had brought out a special Birthday dish for one of the guests you would have thought - what a brilliant local, undiscovered, special restaurant - and the food is great too.

And you would be absolutely spot on.
