Beef supplied by @Humble Tiller , veg from the garden, beef stock and dumplings. It was lush.

Mr. GRB has been making smutty dumpling-related comments all evening!

Sorry chaps , no Photos , I just don't take photos in restaurants
this afternoon ,me and Lady Beagle had the good fortune to dine at Mr Nick Nairns new premises thoughtfully named "Nicks" on Henderson Street, Bridge of Allen
Starter for her was parsnip and apple soup, with a scone, and butter and goats cheese, I tried it , it was perfect
My starter, chicken and leek terrine with chutney, balsamic spots some spots on the plate of very overcooked onion pulp and very thin toasted sourdough toast ...strangely , it all worked , especially the burnt onions which was a great surprise

we both decided to have the fillet of beef medalions , (rare) dauphinoise potato and carrots and spinach with jus/sauce/ ok gravy which was very thin but exceedingly delicious... beef was perfect, potatoes perfect vegetables perfect

what Can one say other than perfection on a plate

All staff were spot on and looked like they enjoyed their work, which means lots in my book

It was a bit expensive (compared to some other restaurants in the area) , personally I give it 10 out of 10 and it was worth every penny of my ill-gotten wealth which I was forced to part with

I recommend this establishment to the collective

Just sayin".
As you didn't cook anything.
 
I'm not allowed to make dumplings at this time of year. When the kids were younger we made disgusting looking Halloween food. I made doggy-doo dumplings in stew. They were made with usual dumpling mix but with gravy browning and dried herbs added then shaped into long poop shapes. They looked so realistic, nobody would eat them. Except me. Very tasty.
 
Supper for a German friend tonight. Beef rouladen, red cabbage with caraway & juniper, bread dumplings. The gravy is made from the veg & stock in which the rouladen were braised.

I’m told it was just like Oma used to make, & this is a good thing as Oma a good cook :)

Very nice. I wish I could make red cabbage like my Dutch mother used to make. I should have asked how she made it but it is too late now.

Looks excellent Cap'n. Had exactly the same dish about a week ago cooked by my German girlfriends mother. Luvly jubly.

I bought a jar of pickled red cabbage in Tesco, drained & rinsed it, added juniper berries & caraway seeds, then warmed through with a drop of water. One method I know involves cooking apples too.

Cheers! Read about it somewhere, as my friend & I had been discussing German food & she said she liked the dumplings I keep in store thought the two would go well together with the cabbage :)

More than the food, your contrast composition is worthy of the Tate London.
That could should be an Album cover, dude.
