“Lazy Sunday afternoon
I’ve got no mind to worry
I close my eyes and drift away”
Small Faces 1968
I was happy to be invited to cook for a group of wine lovers. The theme being 1st growth from Bordeaux, and the admission was – bring a bottle of those of your choice. Christoph not only asked me to cook, but also participating in the the dinner and the tasting. My admission thus was the time I spend cooking.
Bordeaux was one of my first loves – wine wise. In the early nineties I was lucky to have a good friend whos cellar as in regard to top Bordeauxs had everything you could ever imagine or wish for,
So – expectations was high, and my cooking was adjusted, meaning less pepper and spices than normally, – I did not want to disturb the delicacy of those drops too much.
Here is some shots from the event…
I love this Champagne, and it was a good companion to my small amuses
One of my favourites of the day, still vibrant.
Having had 3 bottles of this in my own cellar, it was nice to revisit – and to actually feel , I drank it when it presented more of what I like in a wine. Elegang power and energy. In my eyes it was still a nice drop of course. It just hadnt improved.
A little lamb “cous cous” thing…
What a brilliant wine.
I love this dish, saw it one night on the telly. Added slices of raw mushrooms.
Probably the best wine of the day. And the only one where you thought…this one needs more time…well in my eyes. I like them young. This was so amazing, and full of energy waiting to develop. What a nice drop.
A few more bottles landed on the table, the tired Danish chef was happy people liked his food.
As for the wines….well how could you not like them. I was happy to have had the chance to participate in this extravaganza of top wines. I thank you Christoph for inviting me – here´s to our new friendship. Rock on. And for those of you that was not there on that Sunday. Well, you missed an outstanding tasting.
As for me, I met some interesting new people and that is what counts the most. I still prefer my wines younger, and was confirmed in that opinion.
