Many residents of Altrincham harbour fond memories of Paul Kitching's 'Juniper' restaurant. It's over ten years since he and Katie abandoned Juniper and relocated to Edinburgh, in the guise of 21212.

We finally made it there last night, to enjoy a superb meal. It's not the sort of place where its appropriate to take pictures of the food, but we arrived early and I sneaked a snap of the dining room before anyone else got there.

I've also inserted two screen dumps that show the menu (choice of 2 starters, 1 soup, choice of 2 mains, 1 cheese, choice of 2 desserts - hence '21212') but that doesn't really give you much clue as to what we ate - that would run to several pages. For instance, the cheese course comprised 13 different European cheeses and an assortment of different crackers.

Possibly the tastiest meal we have ever had...

Paul and Katie say "hello" to all their old friends in Altrincham and would like to welcome anyone who visits Edinburgh and cares to savour one of Paul's culinary treats.

Tuesday 24 February 2009 - Chaophraya

2401chaophrayaSue and I enjoyed an excellent meal here tonight, unusually for us in the centre of Manchester.  The mixed starter was really very tasty as well as being a good plate full, and Sue's curry and my prawn special were both tasty, washed down with a nice bottle of Chilean sauvignon blanc.

A strange day, really, starting with the sadness of John Shepherd's funeral, and finishing with the witnessing of an incident on the tram.
