Tonight chez nous, cultural misappropriation goes far east. East being a usefully vague word.
The star wine is TWS Beaujolais Blanc, this is VERY good, the buyer has been on their toes here. If you are a white Burgundy person… this might be of interest.
ALL ROOM TEMPERATURE, far-east buffet:
Vietnamese(?) dressing involving: lime juice, fish sauce, rice vinegar, chilli oil, shallots, soy sauce, brown sugar.
Cold water prawns. Next time I might omit (or char grille)
Courgettes yellow and green ribbons with mint & chives & yellow tomato.
Cold edame & soy noodles, blanched bok choi, cherry tomatoes.
Duck eggs, soft boiled.
Bagel topping. with sesame and nigella and all manner of crunchy bits. Should have been toasted peanuts but I didn’t have any.
Eating… being mostly raw & blanched, flavours are enhanced… everything turned up to 11. Happy Monday evening everyone.
