Panna Cotta - apple puree, caramel ice cream.
All made in house. All created by Craig Millar, the man with the inventive mind, the luxurious taste buds.
2 AA Rosettes.

There is John Street and James Street, and then of course George Street. All the houses are built tight into the winding narrow passage. Number 27 is one of the few with a stairway, and like a Haiku, so small they constitute one mighty move. This move will be to blow open the view to the Firth of Forth: 2 floors, a loft and a Bulthaup kitchen.
|The Forth is calm, for the moment. It's said one's neighbors begin calling up the street as the dolphins move west.|
Area to the left will be main bath.

The A917, a two lane road, runs a ribbon east-west through the coastal villages of Elie, St. Monans, Pittenweem, Anstruther and Crail to the eastern point of the Balcomie links. A footpath links the villages.
Before I begin on the new cottage, the new library, the new life, I'll set the scene:
Here is Pittenweem Harbor, the village where I am staying, the shore with the tide in, the taste of what Autumn looks like through the trees on the road to St. Andrews, the home of golf and the St. Andrews University where Prince William and Kate Middleton met...but I'll get to that later.
as if God's paintbrush was flicked over the hills and left yellow, orange, gold and red in watercolor and dabbed, smeared and brushed into shape.

OH. MY. GOD, the chocolate soufflé with it's soft chocolate pudding center, the warm melding with the cold ice cream and the raspberry sauce.
Totally unexpected and one more reason why Angelini is the go to place for precision, flavor and fantastic value.
We love it.

"It's not what you know you're going to do - it's what you discover in the act of doing it."
….so says Jack Grapes, http://www.jackgrapes.com award winning poet, playwright, actor and teacher of word juggling extraordinaire. And guess what….he's right…there are so many unknowns to the unknown and how can one ever know how it will unfold until the unfolding begins…
Did J. M. W. Turner know he would paint exactly this when he stood before the blank canvas? http://www.william-turner.org
It's January and time for the annual watercolour display at the
Scottish National Galleries…
and so a new year begins, slightly cold, unusual in it's loneliness and heart speak and time travel and the digital age and the warp speed with which it all travels. Now is the time to read Marcel Proust, take in season 5 of Downton Abbey, and remember …."it's what you discover in the act of doing it."
