Gbf's parents came to visit recently and this is what they pulled out for show & tell.
It looks flat in the photos but its really a bowl made out of telephone wires!! They found it in a gift shop on their way to our house. Such wonderful colours and the electric spiral is so full of...Pizazz!!
The next day we all went to Ashcrofts Restaurant in Blackheath. We were sipping our wines when the bread came out... in a Telephone Wire bowl!!
What a coincidence!! The owners of the restaurant had found them on a trip to Africa about 5 years ago.
Our lunch was outstanding!! Each course better than the last, the service exceptional and the company was wonderful.
Here's dessert -Vanilla Bean Custard with Spun Toffee. Sprinkled with rose petals! Yum!!
A few people have asked how we ate our desserts... We weren't quite sure to begin with and started by nibbling at the sugar shards. As we gained confidence we broke the toffee down into the custard and gobbled it up. :)
