Anyway as per I digress.
Back to Babington.
To start: the rooms.
Where's wally? Maj LOLz. Jodie the hoot! And my room:
It didn't look quite as elegant after I drunkenly thought eating a mars bar in bed at 1am was a good idea but fell asleep half way through and woke with it smeared across the pillow. #holdthechicometer
So it went like this: lunch, stared at a-list celeb, treatments (off the scale good facial btw), stared at a-list celeb's boyfriend, room, prosecco, room, champagne, a talk through the new Miss S collection which is seriously good, huge amounts of delicious food, more booze, mars bar.
So... The food.
I'm going straight in for the main deal: dinner.
We had our own private dining room (that's just how those miss s folk roll)...
Love the mustard velvet curtains against turquoise-y blue walls. Colour hi-Karumba!
The food arrived on huge platters and it was a help yourself situation (this obviously wasn't a problem).
To start: prawn cocktail, tomato and mozzarella salad and something else involving boiled eggs #nonpourmoi as they say in Lille. I just feel that boiled eggs are best kept for breakfast. Nothing personal.
Tasty - particularly the mozzarella. I prefer my prawn cocktail a bit more saucy but it was pretty delish with big prawny bits. Next the mains. Now by this point we had all guzzled a fair amount of champagne and red wine but everyone was getting on famously.
Honestly I can't really remember what this was. Fish I think.
Lamb - yum
Asparagus risotto - very delicate
I've come to the conclusion I don't have a very subtle palate. I think I might have damaged it by overconsumption of Tabasco (meant to speed up your metabolism apparently). Look - it worked for Naomi Campbell. Anyway. The risotto was very nice but the flavours were a little too subtle for my chilli mouth. Or maybe that was all the red wine. You get me? So thank you thank you Miss Selfridge - that really was a big fat treat. And definitely worth the pain the next day (even Last-to-bed Nellist would agree). AIRD
