Heaven is a Place on Earth

I have dreamt about going to Petersham Nurseries for ever. We finally made it there this weekend and it was so heavenly I am practically speechless. It couldn't have been a more perfect day for it if it tried. Beautifully sunny and warm - it felt like summer. The restaurant has just got a Michelin star which probably explains a bit about why you cant get a table for love nor money. I had burata with San Daniel ham and a broad bean and mint concoction, then a fancy lamb and chick pea number and a delicious chocolate mousse for pudding. A proper culinary sensation. Albeit a seriously expensive one. I could have bought the whole shop and am not sure quite what came over me to have left totally empty handed. Most unlike me. I must be getting a cold or something. Anyway, I will be heading back there for sure. I was even quite tempted to apply for one of their job vacancies, just so I could go there every day...

My burata and San Daniel starter which looked much better in real life

We are all in love with this lamp
