A few months ago, Bob and I decided to venture out on our first date night since having Freya. We decided to go to Le Cochon Aveugle in York after having to cancel a booking there earlier in 2017. We had originally booked to go around March-April time 2017 and then found out we were pregnant. As I didn’t want to miss out on amazing food but knowing that the menu was served blind, we decided to cancel at the time and rebook at a later date. The team at the restaurant was very understanding and allowed us to cancel as soon as we knew about the baby.
Fast forward to November 2017, and we finally got to enjoy the 8 course tasting menu that we had thought about all year. For those of you that may not know, the restaurant was set up in 2014 by 26-year-old chef Joshua Overington and his partner Victoria. Joshua then went on to represent the North East in Great British Menu; a show both Bob and I had watched for a couple of years. Incredibly we had not long had to cancel our booking for this restaurant, than saw Joshua on the TV taking part in the show and were absolutely gutted when we found out he owned the restaurant we were desperate to try out.
On entrance to the restaurant we were really impressed with how intimate it felt and for our first date night since having a baby; the perfect setting for such an event.
