Jamie O gets a "thumbs up"

I may detest the Jamie Oliver commercials, shopping at the supermarket he champions on its merits and not its wasted advertising budget, but was surprised by how much I enjoyed his Cambridge Italian restaurant. The draw for the Cambridge Normingtons was the promise of "CRUNCHY STUFFED ASCOLANA OLIVES". We had these olives in Venice on our honeymoon... and have wondered why the ascolana olive dish is not seen more often on these shores (or the continental United States for that matter).

The meal was delicious.

We finished the evening at the convivial St Radegund pub.

Special thanks to the baby-sitting service that made the whole evening possible.
