Dinner Joys Galore


A free tip for your next social event. Get a group of friends together in a Skype multichat. Set a date for a dinner. Divide courses and entertainment responsibilities and set no further rules.

If your friends are anything like mine you will end up with six hours of pure joy featuring:

  • Three types of game sausage (boar, deer & moose)

  • Pickled wild mushrooms

  • Home made bread

  • Thai-style chicken skewers with cucumber-coriander salad

  • Veal carpaccio parmigiano

  • Phaesant leg on grilled portobello mushrooms pictured above, with a topping of pomme grenade foam (latter á la El Bulli)

  • Crème brulée

  • Alsace Gran Cru Riesling, Cotes du Rhone Villages and 1er Cru Sauternes on side (not to mention the vodka for carpaccio)

  • A pop quiz revealing the true usage of whiskey in 7th century Ireland (involving donkeys) and greeting traditions in Tibet (involving tongues)

Just lovely.
