Why am I looking so delighted and pointing enthusiastically at a plate of lentil soup?
Sure health food is good for you - there are those who do indeed get enthusiastic about lentil soup, though I doubt they feel the need to take a picture of it!
The dress code is a clue - and the tie is seriously making a statement ( I love ties!) - so this is me in Vienna as a guest having a meal out in one of its best Italian restaurants.
The fork is also a clue - lentil soup can be thick, but doesn't usually need a fork to eat it.
The reason for the beatific grin and the pointing finger and the need to have a photographic record is - I am about to enjoy the biggest creme brulee I've ever seen in my life. That large oval dish with its acres of brown caramelised sugar is a dream come true. After the photo shoot, I remember slowly making my way across the plate oblivious of all dietary consequences and aware only of finally knowing how loosely I'd previously used the adjective delicious. This creme brulee recalibrated the word for me. Once I thought I knew what it meant - now it is defined and its colour is yellow beneath caramelised sugar - and is not small :))
