We're all familiar with the story of Alice in Wonderland. Or at least, we know about the white rabbit, the Mad Hatter, and so on. What we didn't know was what it would be like to could combine the famous children's story with fine dining...until this weekend, that is.
Muse had the pleasure of hosting Gal Ben Moshe of Glass Restaurant, and what he had in store for our guests was more than your average meal. Combining whimsy with creativity, Gal created an 8-course Alice in Wonderland themed tasting menu, taking us through many of the story's riddles and quirks, disguised in carefully crafted dishes.
From 'Mock Turtle Soup' to 'Lobster Quadrille', Gal kept us intrigued, entertained, and of course, well fed. It was an aboslute pleasure to work with Gal, and an honour to share our kitchen with someone so talented and passionate about food. We're already looking forward to next time!
A big thank you to everyone who came on Saturday and Sunday and shared this experience with us, and of course a huge thank you to Gal!
