Hey that’s my coat!

Dessert is a showstopper. Zuccotto says Lance for the third time. Zoo-cot-oh … it’s Italian. It’s inspired by Il Duomo, hence the shape. As he slices and dishes up, adding a splodge of marscapone to each serve I glance across the table at Toni, a charming but somewhat vague woman I’m guessing in her late sixties. We are seated at the long lunch table for my Aunt Esther’s 80th birthday celebration. The room is probably described in those posh country lifestyle magazines as a conservatory as it’s mostly glass. The floors are timber. The air is cool and there’s mizzle outside. It reminds me of London.
