Valentines, How was yours?

What were you doing on Valentines?

The typical blow a bomb on flowers that usually cost half the price? Or maybe the girl who receives over-priced flowers?

Then pre-booking a restaurant a week before hand and having to choose between a menu that will cost an arm or an arm and a leg?

Or were you like me? Innocently walking into a lunch with people who thought Valentines was nothing but a day where retailers and restaurants make loads of money out of fools who believed that you should only love your other half on that particular day and not the remainder of the 364 days.

Ohh, fools who fall for commercialisation.

In any case, i thank my lucky stars for that invite as we dine and wine into what appeared to be a champagne drinking marathon that finally closed its curtains after 10 hours ( i left half way, yes, call me alcohol in-tolerant, if you wish)

Cheese anyone? Brie, Blue or just cheese?

Reminiscence of the Australian supper days; sausage rolls, daintly cut into mouth size bites.

Along with crackers, came very interesting and exotic dips and spreads.

Did i mention very grand spreads as well?

Home made Chicken Pie, something that can be called chicken pie for the sheer amount of chicken stuffed inside the fluffy pastry.

Did i not mention lots of champagne while the mains were being served?

The Duo of Mash; Truffle Mash on the left and Wasabi Mash on the right.

Lemongrass Chicken or Cock Au Citronella. Wonderfully flavoured.

Roast Beef with Yorkshire Pudding, who needs to go to Chinoz for their buffet?

Roast Duck Pasta

A Salad that had quail eggs, apples and walnuts

A Seafood Mousse that was left behind in the Fridge until it made a very late VIP moment.

When we were all stuffed; desserts made its grand arrival

Molten Chocolate Cakes with Fresh Cream

A Tacky Heart Peach and Mango Pavlova

Wash it off with more bubbly.

A luxurious lindt chocolate mousse cake.

This website/blog does not encourage excessive drinking especially opening bottles just to create a heart shape. As the bottle says:

"Enjoy Responsibly"

My most sincere thanks to the host for another memorable alcoholic lunch..

Hungry just looking at the pictures, Grr..
