Dear tumblr, I don’t normally show you my food but I have made a motherfucking terrine. Chicken livers, thighs, sausagemeat, nutmeg, onions, all wrapped up in bacon and cooked into a loaf and I am so damn proud of myself. Defeating culinary incompetence one recipe at a time. :D

Plus it keeps me fed for like, a week in sandwich form.

Three-Course Meal with Champagne and Wine

Put down your thinking cap — ‘The Case of the Mysteriously Marvellous Food’ has finally been solved, and the culprit is Criterion Restaurant. • For £45, one person will enjoy a glass of champagne on arrival and a three-course meal, with a glass of wine matched with each course. • For £90 two people will enjoy the same. • For £180 get the same deal for four people. • Enjoy starters from the set menu such as ham hock and black pudding terrine,or chicken liver parfait with red onion marmalade. • For your main course, tuck into dishes such as sumptuous pan-fried salmon with a chive beurre blanc,or a chicken, leek, and mushroom pie. • Decadent desserts include white chocolate mousse with poached rhubarb and pistachio granola, and pecan frangipane tart. • With each course comes a glass of specially selected wine, which has been chosen to compliment the food and enhance the flavour of the dish. • Please note, the menu changes daily and the dishes listed here may not appear on the menu on the day of your visit. • You couldn’t ask for a more luxurious setting — the interior twinkles with marble and gold, and the gilded ceiling is truly something to marvel at. • What’s more, the restaurant is located in the heart of Piccadilly. • Steeped in history, the restaurant is where Arthur Conan Doyle imagined the first meeting between Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson, and where the Suffragettes gathered. • More recently, it was featured in The Dark Knight and Downton Abbey. • Valid Monday to Friday for lunch from 12 p.m. to 2.30 p.m., and for dinner from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. • Certain exclusions apply, please see fine print for further details.
