First edition of Friends and Food
In celebration of his new diggs, Mo Z, former culinarian behind Corner Suite Bistro, Vancouver’s Voted Best New Resto of 2010, invited a few VIP’s for a dinner party.
Roasted tomato salad -Sweet and juicy tomatoes with radish and pickled shallots over a bed of mixed greens and shaved carrots
After his first bite…
Sweet and tangy couscous sprinkled with cranberry and lemon juice.
Braised lamb stew in a red wine reduction – potatoes, shallots, carrots, infused with thyme. This was very flavourful and surprisingly light. Paired with Peter Lehman’s Cabernet Sauvignon. Absolutely superb!
Sorry, Andrea and Jack, the Californian Merlot from a box just doesn’t do it for me, call me a wine snob. Come on, it came out from a sprout as if I was pouring diluted Coke. Not even Coca Cola Coke, a replica of Coca-Cola made in China.
Palate Cleanser Refreshments
In between courses, after finishing his palette cleanser, Ciroc Vodka….he moved on to an entire bottle of Prosecco and Beer.
Courtesy of Sophia aka Ms. Dessert Monster we finished off this fine meal with Creme Puffs, lightly drizzled with a sweet and tangy red wine reduction sauce.
