“The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you've got to have a what-the-hell attitude.” ― Julia Child

A while back I posted an entry entitled It Ain't Easy Bein' Cheesy, concerning Planters Restaurant inside Tenterden Garden Centre. Today we ventured once again to this fine establishment. Here, my friends, are the pictures to prove it.

One of the daily specials was this fabulous celeriac and leek pie. It sounded so unusual I had to try it. It was really terrific. But that wasn't all. Oh no, because it came with a side dish of veggies...

These veggies. There are green beans, cabbage, some peas, and a wonderful carrot and swede mash. Swede is known as rutabaga in the States.
My sister had a big ol' baked potato smothered in cheese and baked beans, with a massive side salad...
Laura had a Baker also, hers had cheese and spring onions on it.... after a while of course it was time for dessert. Sis and I had a look at the dessert board while Laura decided against it and went to look at some snakes.

I'm sorry, but if it's a choice between looking at slithering reptiles and eating this beautiful pear & ginger crumble in a sea of delicious custard, then crumble wins out for me every time.

Sis went for the chocolate cake and ice cream. And really, who could blame her?
Well, there you have it folks. A good time had by all, even the snake lovers amongst us.
