Well here we are again not far off Christmas. Turkey and panettone beckon!
Thank you so much to everyone who reads, comments, shares, or who I bump into and tells me they enjoy reading my blog – I do appreciate it! I hope you all have a lovely festive season and all the best for 2015.
These are some of the dishes that stand out from this year – unique, clever, or just plain delicious. Auguri di buone feste and “see” you next year!
Sugar Snaps and Celtuce with Savoury Lemon Curd at Monopole. Who would have thought lemon curd could work with vegetables?
Tomato sorbet with a tomato jelly, pistachio and rice crumb, and parmesan custard at Berowra Waters Inn
The Pedro Ximenez Magnum at Nomad….mmmmmm
New England Lobster roll from Supernormal…..super good
Scallop cake with herbs, peanuts and prawn broth at Rockpool. Neil nails Asian once again.
Panzerotti at Luini in Milan, my tastiest cheap eat for the year!
Buffalo milk three ways, at Trattoria Nerino Dieci in Milan….a great little trattoria
Three milk cake at Spice Temple (still hoping Neil will share the recipe :) )
Pappardelle with oxtail ragu at Via Alta, fragrant and rich
Udon noodles with pork and chilli at Cho Cho San, but most of the dishes I had here were great
An unexpectedly good dessert called the “pavlova cake” at Gardels Bar
Western Australian scampi scented with Japanese curry, apple, sheep yoghurt, mushroom at three hatted Sepia
What a year. And so many places on the list for 2015! Enjoy
