A brief picture post today, to ease myself back into things after the annual chocolate orgy. These are all from last week’s food and wine bloggers’ dinner at Vinoteca last week – many thanks to Niamh at Eat Like a Girl for organising it all, and to the guys at Vinoteca for the fantastic scoff. A really great meal, and it was good to see some familiar faces and to meet some new people.
Stand-outs included the purple-sprouting broccoli with anchovy butter (no pic, I’m afraid – it’s dark in Vinoteca’s private room, and not everything photographed well) and the gurnard salad. At this time of year, sautéed potatoes are dressed with fresh ramps (the leaves of wild garlic) and parsley – it’s good to see a menu packed with so much that’s seasonal.
