Birthday dinner

Just had a very enjoyable birthday dinner evening with the in-laws. Lots of laughter and good food and everything went to plan, even the experimental presentation of the entree – wasn’t sure whether it was going to be the one-mouthful-wonder that I hoped for but it was! Quite successful. Bit of a Top Chef-styple interpretation of Insalata Caprese.

Tomato & mozzarella bites
Spanakopita & salad greens
Warm spiced apple cake & whipped cream

And an Alsace Grand Cru Pinot Gris – I don’t like pinot gris (that famous quote of mine says it all “eeeeuw it tastes like the smell of a rotten lemon found in the bottom of the fruit bowl”) but this one was quite nice. The Grand Cru was probably the mind-changer … damn expensive taste!

And a really great end to a lovely day. Once you have left your day job and given up underwater photography I think you should definitely go into the catering business.
