  1. What does the wasabi go with? EDIT: My bad, didn't read it properly.
  2. Ignore the blogger, whatever. It's still a horrible way for these chefs to act. These guys are celebrities in this industry and running their mouths like that where anyone can see is disgusting. It's not the way you run a business and it's a very immature way for grown men to act. P.S. I've been to Hibiscus, it really wasn't very good. Mr Isherwood's gave a better review than I would have.
  3. So have a Coke or a cocktail like I did.
  4. I may have had a sneak preview yesterday, perks of the job!
  5. Wasn't my style at all when I visited. Lots of bitter, sharp, odd flavours and tastes. I lean more towards the Phil Howard camp I think!
  6. Graham Garrett really seems like a lovely bloke. Bet it was hard for him with those two.
  7. Headed for dinner here on the 25th after lunch at Dabbous. Hotelypmia the next day. Ridiculously excited!
  8. The Perch is on the verge and definetely worth a visit. http://www.the-perch.co.uk/ The Mole Inn is a great 2 rosette pub. http://www.moleinntootbaldon.co.uk/ and of course Le Manoir www.manoir.com
  9. Gee's is nothing special. A nice location but for the price the food isn't great. It's one of the better restaurants in Oxford though. Luna Caprese is worth a look, a great little Italian trattoria style place. Not many know about it. Brasserie Blanc and Jamies Italian i'd say are the best chain restaurants in Oxford. If you want to leave the city centre I can give some good recommendations!
  10. I can see my ex-colleague Kyle in that second picture!
  11. Hope they don't get that smelly table...
  12. You get a tower of petit fours at Pied a Terre...
  13. 'Thanks for your review, we have managed to get rid of the smell, it strangely disappeared when you left, funny that, just telling it as we saw................. See you soon. Sat. ' Wow, is this for real? That is not profedssional at all, even if it is just tripadvisor.
  14. Wow, hope they are OK. Hope to visit soon.
  15. Im kinda excited to go here
  16. No where I know of in the UK is tipping considered an insult. There is however a different mentality to tipping here.
  17. Interesting seeing England from an outsiders perspective. Shame you couldn't sample more of Oxford..!
  18. To be a development chef or something similar your best bet would be to go through professional kitchens as normal, make your mark and move from there. One of my housemates is a development chef for a 2 Michelin star chef here and that was his route and the route of others I know too. Difficult otherwise to show you have the talent and skill to create in a way that's useful in a professional kitchen.
  19. People are like that about a lot of things, each to their own.
  20. Ridiculous in any kind of establishment to get this wrong for a table of two. Unless the person serving the food didn't take the order and wasn't told who was having what. Anyway in that case they should ask not just assume.
  21. Those petit fours look like actual desserts themselves!
  22. If your father is a professional chef he should know better.
