Enjoying time-out by the sea in Sydney with the heady arrogance of an Australian summery Winter. Thursday night dinner with a melange of old and new friends, all united with the common cause of 'a lark'.
BBQ Haloumi with Watermelon and Star Anise Vinegarette (Riesling, aged Chardonnay or Semillon, Vermentino, Albarino, Rose - merlot or grenache base)
Lamb Stifado with Potato, Spinach, Lemon and Yoghurt (Shiraz - cool or warm climate, Zinfandel/Primitivo, Cabernet Merlot, Barbera, Carmenere)
Baked Rosewater Milk Tart with Pistachio Praline (Botrytis Riesling, Late Harvest White, Cointreau)
Despite the anticipation of all this, the need for Weetbix, cold milk and lots of sugar just won't escape me.........
