Trip of my life. So much love for the 13 other printmakers who were with me. Dinner made by my amazing prof every night. Above was our last meal, had to be recalled twice, but it was worth the wait!

Had dinner with Charles at Luke's. First time trying molecular gastronomy - very strange. It's so weird to taste something good, but not be able to identify the ingredients.

A 15th century preparation~ crisp medallions of stuffed pork, Mushroom Ketchup, Preserved Lemon, Quail Egg
Whhhaaaaa? Ok. I have identified the quail egg. And the crisp medallion of stuffed pork. It looks fried though... did they do that to their meat in the 15th century? Either way this was yummy, despite having so many unknown components. I finished it in a few bites and made sure I had a bit of everything in each bite (if that's even how you eat it??)

Thyme, Potatoes, Capers, Olives, Onions
Charles had this. Hmm. I have the same chopping board at home. The pizza base was made from smoked pork belly.
We both had this. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I knew I wouldn't be getting your typical salad. The 'solid' was the jelly cube and the 'liquid' was a consomme.
Rabbit, Pumpkin, Black Sesame, Cuminatum, Ginger Refresher
The ginger refresher was in the shape of a garlic clove, so ginger and garlic were subconsciously interchanged in conversation.
Beef Cheeks, “Foie Gras”, Cafe de Paris “Truffle”, Champagne, Ginger, Rose, Hippocras
Fancy! I just ate each component from left to right. It tasted good... but I can't tell you what it all was!
Leg Confit, “Pulled” Breast, Caramelized Onion Pain Perdu, Tomato, Duck Comet, Marshmallow
Ok, how can you not eat something called 'Cosmic Duck'? Note: The white rock on the right is inedible. You never know with molecular gastronomy.

Overall the meal was interesting. It did taste good, but it was confusing to not know where the taste was coming from. We spent a lot of time trying to figure out the different parts of the dishes and what the best way to eat it was!
