The Fat Duck

Wolfram Siebeck's adventures in snail porridge and yuckerie should put to rest those tired old canards about English cuisine. The Fat Duck is now creeping toward the top of my lifetime to do list. Especially the crab risotto (hat to the Foodie of the Flea).

Finally it's official. The best restaurant in the world is called The Fat Duck. To thank for this revelation are 600 experts (chefs, critics and connoisseurs) who were surveyed by the British newspaper The Guardian. And because 600 experts could never be wrong, we finally have the conclusive list of the fifty best gourmet restaurants in the entire world. An exceptionally high number of them 14 to be precise are in England. Which doesn't surprise anyone who has ever succumbed to the culinary seduction of English family hotels.
