FERA – At Claridges , London.

It was a cold December Saturday night in London and my first ever trip to Claridges for dinner. I was accompanied by a couple of my foodie friends ( David from the Critical couple blog and Kevin Finediningexplorer ).I `was` going to leave my camera at the hotel and have a blog free evening but seeing as though it`s surgically attached to my face I ended up taking it. Basically we were just heading there to support Simon Rogans new venture and to have a good old lads gossip and plenty of wine as this was the official start to my Xmas wind down.

So straight on to the food. We opted for the Tasting menu (£95) and also the accompanying wine flight selected by our Sommelier. Our Chef for the evening was Dan Cox who took up the position of Head Chef after spending the last few years up in Cumbria at Rogans flagship restaurant  Lenclume in Cartmel.
