The taste is sour

Published 15 June 1993

Sir, John Burton-Race, chef at L'Ortolan in Shinfield, Berkshire, shows what his customers can expect if they dare not to like his food ("Dish of the Day", Weekend, June 5).

You report him saying he did me "a favour" by letting me into his restaurant and that I then asked for a larger table and showed off all over the place. I did ask for a larger table because the table I had was both small and very wobbly. After that I sat quietly (too quietly) and ate food I didn't care for.

Yours sincerely,


6-8 Sackville Street, W1.
