Was this asked for?

If so and if met with a positive response I will have scallops and bacon followed by sirloin steak (medium-rare) with skinny chips (preferred) or big fat chips (more likely).

If scallops not available I will have the parfait to start, please.

Not on a diet. Never been disappointed with the way a medium rare steak has been cooked at B&F but often with the black and blue.

It's the THIRD part of the tasting, only for very end! Part 1 = F63, Part 2 = EB, Part 3 = Axel :)
(please let him bring it for the end, I haven't tried it and would love to!)

No “chicken supreme” on menu. You have been ordered “Grilled free-range chicken breast with slow braised chorizo and red peppers”.

I have been outvoted by the attendees (at least all of those called Phil). We will be having a third flight of ports on June 15th, the third flight being 1937 colheitas.

Hi
sorry for the delay - food order
- Goats cheese salad
- Steak medium rare.

I notice that I am down to bring a F63 from the same pipe as yours. I can do this or if you want some more variety for the second half - I can substitute this with a Butler Nephew 55.

Let me know

Cheers

Tony

Awaiting organiser's judgement (AHB), but you might like to preempt by answering his perhaps likely response of "Is it English Bottled?"

I'm assuming the BN55 will be English bottled, in which case please bring that. I think we'll have had our fill of F63!
