Oh it was all beyond wonderful but it always does look too good to eat.
Blood orange slices, the white chocolate tower had lemon mousse inside it and the ornate strands were sugar.
very delicate tastes and absolutely perfect
By the time you get to desert at V&A's, you're too stuffed to eat more.
Strangest experience I ever had dining. You look at each course they bring you and can't help thinking, "that's awfully small". But by the time you've eaten your way through all the courses and come to desert, you're absolutely stuffed.
It's really quite amazing and once you've done it, you can't wait to go back!

And if you eat at the Chef's Table there is even more food. Donna's favorite is the Kona Chocolate Souffle' and mine is the Grand Marnier Souffle'.Originally Posted by catrancher, post: 269631

To put it in a bit more context, at the end of the meal they brought out a wonderful plate of hand made chocolates and sweets. Only about eight of them but from experience we knew they would be the best chocolates ever. Neither of us could even think about eating one, we just couldn't eat another thing and so they boxed them up for us.
Perhaps as a photo on its own the desserts look small, it didn't occur to me because as a whole experience, it's so wonderful and filling that anything larger at that point would have felt over the top and rather gross to me.
All I can do is say, try it!
