I ask you to confirm your visit a week before and also to give us a telephone number for direct contact.
NOTE: Ferran Adrià will prepare for you a personalized tasting menu. It is important to prepare it to know before if there is some important problem to take care of it, like allergies or products that we can not introduce in your menu.
Now I know in whose praise I shall be singing at thanksgiving table.
Watch this space come next Spring my dear readers. I'll make sure I get a meal at the Fat Duck in as well. Oh, yes, and Grant Achatz's new Alinea should be open by then. Wouldn't it make for an interesting blog? Can't you imagine the title? Well, I don't know, perhaps, Variations on a theme of Molecular Gastronomy: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit?
This is going to be such fun. :-)
