French onion soup with fresh thyme and gruyère cheese, coconut crȇpe wrapped around halibut delicately poached in truffle butter, forest foraged ramp risotto topped with prosciutto and dusted with fresh parmesan, crack pie with milk ice cream on a vanilla tuile and a French canelé with a malt barley and hazelnut latté. Yum. Chris Godfrey’s twelve course meal in a can sounds amazing.
The optimist underestimates how difficult it is to achieve real change, believing that anything is possible and it's possible now. Only by confronting head-on the reality that all progress is going to be obstructed by vested interests and corrupted by human venality can we create realistic programmes that actually have a chance of success.
