The Long Awaited Birthday Present
Lynne chose a gift voucher menu of World Heritage Cuisine for her home-cook husband Michael to celebrate his birthday. But his demanding work schedules delayed the occasion for six months. Last night we had the pleasure of meeting them, preparing and presenting a special version of the Missing Bell Izakaya Meat and Seafood menu. Here is the actual serving.
