Darling, the Guide doesn't even send inspectors to Canada.

King Island camembert cheese. Lindt dark chocolate covered almonds or hazelnuts. Frangelico liquer. Sigh. All lovely, but I try to limit the intake now to special occasions.

Fortunately in a large family it is not too long between special occasions!

It may horrify you to learn that in nearly 50 years on the planet the poshest place I've ever eaten is here: http://www.scotsmanspackcountryinn.co.uk/menus

Actually, Karl, it looks quite nice. I would rather have an outstanding beef pie and mash than an indifferent bit of wankery garnished with seared foie gras. I still remember a particular venison pie I had in Moulin, Scotland about ten years ago. Perfection. Your post has given me an idea for my next hike in the UK - I must do some research.

I could cop to that - and while I don't eat out much any more, I like good ingredients and sometimes spend what must seem like an inordinate amount of time on preparation.

I also like smelling nice - though the expense of a decent cologne can be spread out over quite a long time
