Now, we've posted a question to Fergus Henderson on the guardian's blog, The Word of Mouth, and here is his response:
French girl, ex-waitress at St John, relocated in New Zealand, running a supperclub, The French House (in hommage to both you and the place)... trying to convince them to forget about ethics and macrobiotic, and eat foie gras and offal... any tips?
"Stick with it! Good luck. Don't be disheartened and make sure it's all delicious. Cooking's not about gore or blood-lust, it's about being delicious."
So thank you very much Fergus, it's encouraging, and yes we will stick to it!
