What I'm writing about at the moment is nothing very esoteric or philosophical or deep; however, what interests me is that it was more or less spontaneous and it pleased a few people so here goes:
Monday night dinner
Attendees: Michael, Pamela, Nobu and me.
Cheese plate: Roquefort, Comté and some fromage de chèvre from Sonoma.
Main course: Sashimi grade tuna marinated in miso, meyer lemon and white wine, then seared. Brussels sprouts sauteed with shallots and dried red currants. Meyer lemon risotto.
Salad: Arugula with shaved fennel, cucumber, persimmon and a tarragon vinaigrette.
Dessert: Persimmon and goat cheese tart.
All made by hand by yours truly with local, seasonal ingredients, and with love.
And many bottles of wine, naturellement.
En plus, it goes without saying (but I'll say it anyway), I heart sharing a good meal with good company!
