I’m slightly in denial that Christmas is exactly two weeks away – my Christmas shopping is not going as well as I would like. In the spirit of starting to feel festive, Colleen and I paid a visit to Fortnum’s Lodge at Somerset House and pretended that we were fresh off the slopes!
I loved the theme of this year’s lodge, with the fire, the garlands on the fireplace and the gorgeous faux fur throws, we really did feel as though we’d come straight off the slopes ready for some apres-ski!
The Lodge is run by Fortnum & Mason, the iconic London store famous for its blue bags, Christmas hampers and all round luxurious feel, so we knew we were in for a really luxurious treat.
Served with both baby new potatoes…
I wasn’t even remotely sad when I dropped my bread – it just meant I was in for some more cheese!
From a foodie standpoint, the combination of the cheese were perfect; it had a great depth of flavour and the sourdough complimented this perfectly.
We kept dipping, laughing and smiling until all the bread was gone and we were utterly full of cheese1
