Asparagus, Bean, and Pork Belly Salad.

Leg of Lamb Cooked for Seven Hours.

Chestnut Leaf Wrapped Goat's Cheese.

Granny's Apple Tart.

Clue: Not in the UK, but should be a lesson to all our 'simplicity is the new complexity' drones.*

*I hope this whole thread doesn't break some eGullet rule about having fun.

Was initially thinking American, but then Granny wouldn't have made an apple "tart". So possibly somewhere in Provence.

Bistrot d'Eygalières?

Not sure that 'tart' necessarily precludes America particularly on the West Coast. Also it's referred to as 'Chestnut Leaf Wrapped Goat's Cheese' rather that 'Banons' or whatever it is in France.

The clue about 'simplicity' implies that it might be an older menu.

I'd go for USA, post Paula Wolfert's re-launch of seven hour lamb but not as recently as that sexy little pork belly salad might lead us to believe.

Chez Panisse? About five years ago?

Quite impressed, but it's a current menu, and in the old country.

St John?

ETA: Ooops. Not UK. The other old country.

Looks a bit like like Aikens until you reach the Baileys cake and "artisanal" cheese, both of which have the unmistakeable tang of a provincial hotel ...

Caramelised Shallot Tart

with Tetilla, slow-baked tomatoes

and chickweed

____________

Roasted Fillet of Hake

with hedgerow garlic

and Lebanese cous cous salad

____________

Baked Rhubarb Tart

I'm afraid this one is ludicrously easy to google, but I know you're all far too sporting to do such a thing... I suppose the prevalence of tarts gives a clue in the comfort direction. perhaps a prevalence could be a collective noun for tarts, like a pride of sommeliers or a nicoise of it girls.

I go to bakeries, all day long.

There's a lack of sweetness in my life...
