Last night went to the local Indian place. Shrimp pakora, tandoori chicken, and paneer tikka. Brought a bottle of Depreville Brut Rose, from the part of France near the Pyrenees. (They have a $2 per glass corkage fee)

Last night at the local fish place, the chef was surpassing his usual excellent offerings. We started with a delicious gazpacho, beautifully presented with a very generous garnish of heirloom tomatoes, Dungeness crab claw meat, cucumber and chive flowers (photo below); then a striped bass crudo with orange zest, tarragon, a bit of bird’s eye pepper and a superbly fruity olive oil (above). Then a summer salad of ripe Okanagan peaches and feta with fresh herbs. The main course— a surprise from the kitchen— was John Dory fillets buried under a mound of fresh corn sliced off the cob, and sautéed chanterelles. All delicious, and accompanied with a nice grand cru Chablis. Despite all the political unrest, shootings, health scares, travel restrictions, etc, life is pretty good sometimes. 🙂
Looks and sounds fantastic. Glad you are enjoying great food!
