6pm: “amore, saremo in sei per cena…”!
yes, we decided to have people for dinner around 6 o’clock yesterday afternoon, having practically nothing in the fridge, except the two sea brims I had bought in the morning for dinner for the two of us. so, after running to the fish market to get the (one) last brim and a bas, and got some vegetables at the store next door, we managed to put together a respectable five-course dinner in about one hour work total!
8pm: table ready and (the first ever) ambient music (1975) in the background, guests ring the door!
who: Anne, Marc, Caroline, François, the two of us
- stuzzinchini di pasta sfoglia con semini varii (lino, sesamo, sesamo nero, semi di papavero)
- mini tatin di cipolla e uvetta all’argan, servite su letto di misticanza
- dorate e branzino al forno
- finocchi stufati con le erbe del giardino
- crumble di rabarbaro
- tisane e John’s Sloe Gin
… and, yes John, your Sloe Gin is nearly finished (it might be gone by tonight!).
