My daily email from Specialty Food News included this interesting tidbit: A UK village restaurant, The Fat Duck, has been ranked one of the best restaurants in the world, trumping our very own French Laundry.
The Fat Duck has apparently "pioneered" such culinary masterpieces as sardine-on-toast sorbet and bacon-and-egg ice cream.
To the UK contingent that honors my space with your presence, please fill me in. What is it that makes this place so great? And is the bacon and egg ice cream for real? I love you Brits, I really do, but I gotta say ... wtf?
