Last night at Frank's kitchen
Venison tartar, Kobe bone marrow, fois gras torchon
Oysters rochefeller
Lamb done 3 ways

Overall, I thought it was a very well executed meal. Unfortunateky, No corkage and wine list is uninspiring.

In addition to water we had:

N.V. Laurent-Perrier Champagne Brut

1983 Ridge Petite Sirah

1999 Canon La-Gaffeliere

25 yr. single malt don't remember which one but was good.


That's better!


Just one more sip.

Last night, a tapas-style feast at Supermarket in Kensington (Toronto):
Edamame
Crispy calamari
Laotion spring rolls
Thai green mango salad with tiger shrimp (best dish hands down)
Sui mai
Shrimp & crab wonton tacos (also nice)
Grilled jerk pork with scotch bonnet pepper dip (pork a tad well done but oh that dip...)

Food was generally good but not so good I'll be rushing back anytime soon.

With the weather getting slightly more chilly at night, we made our first cold weather dish in sometime last night in a really tasty beef bourguignon.

How did your 03 show? A friend brough one over recently and it was less than stellar. A bit over-ripe and flabby if I recall correctly.

This bottle was not at all over-ripe and flabby. Definitely drinkable after decanting, but still very young. No fruit bomb but no secondary characterics flagrant. Old World astringence but bright fruit and acidity in balance. I'm guessing this will be way better in 5 or even 10 years. It's a rare Beaucastel from a decent or better vintage that shows it's best before age 15.


Just one more sip.

Roast Pork Tenderloins, Chinese-Style last night. Used a rub of five-spice powder and salt, and finished with a sauce from honey, soy, hoisin, garlic and ginger.

Simple and delicious.
