Foodie bucket list

Crossed another one off my list this week - had real caviar (only a tiny bit) when travelling through Gatwick. There's a Prunier place on the upper level (Gatwick South) that does caviar and smoked salmon on a blini with creme fraiche - and it was lovely! I don't count carbs or calories when travelling :)

That leaves only one foodie thing on my bucket list - and that's to go eat the tasting menu at the Fat Duck. Won't be able to afford that any time soon - maybe in a few years time for my 60th?

I can't be doing with a list that's only one item long, so was wondering if anyone else has any yet-to-be-fulfilled foodie wishes (or ones you've completed)? Doesn't have to be expensive or luxurious, just something to do with food you've always dreamed of experiencing. I need inspiration!

Foodie bucket list

I quite like caviar but for my palate it is hugely over-priced. My taste just isn't good enough, I suppose? Lumpfish roe adds some flavour and colour to nibbles and is nice on top of cold poached salmon filet with salad and homemade mayo.

Our 'foodie grail' was the Waterside Inn at Bray, over the road from the Fat Duck. We took the luncheon table d'hote for around £50 per head inclusive other than drinks (DON'T order the wine before you see the price, I had a jug of tapwater which turned out to be mineral water gratis). It was really superb. Very non-kinky and a long way from Heston's stuff. Being a conservative eater, it suited me and my wife perfectly. We looked at the Fat Duck online and wandered past when we went to the WI but quite honestly, in the area, intending to spend that money on a meal, we'd go back to the WI.

Fugu

For me it's steak tartar. My foodie bucket list could do with an update too.
I crossed off Fugu while in Japan which was quite spectacular and I lived to tell the tale.
