My life is full of great experiences, made better for sharing.

Amuse Bouche is a French culinary term for a pre-appetiser that seeks to "amuse" on arrival.
In this case, it was lunch at the Adelaide Botanic Gardens Restaurant, and the dish served on a little log, was a small pear walnut and cos lettuce salad. The Pear was beautifully prepared with both some fruit and essence. Shaved walnut and the tiniest cost lettuce I have ever seen, just 4 or 5 centimetres around.
On further enquiry, we discovered the staff gather many of the ingredients from foraging in the Botanic Gardens.
A delightful surprise and palate stimulant.
Needless to say, the two courses fixed price meal that followed was a very pleasurable experience. It was followed by a delightful walk around the Gardens, a pleasant time in any season.
