easter in edinburgh
We spent the Easter weekend in Edinburgh, visiting family and resting our tired London minds and bodies. We tucked ourselves away from the bitterly cold weather, venturing out only to eat lunch or to buy provisions for supper. On Friday we tried horse tartare (a little strange, my young English palate has to admit) at L'Escargot Bleu and guzzled down a bottle of Gewürztraminer, before heading home with a sore head and allowing ourselves to indulge in an afternoon nap. (Also: is it wrong that I sort of love the restaurant's old wine crate and striped linen tea towel lampshades? Possibly...) On Saturday we cooked sea bass with lemons and risotto and on Sunday we obviously had to have lamb and dauphinoise. Easter heaven.
