Bright nights and sunny days
This photo was snapped on a tram ride home from Cutler & Co. last Thursday night. The L.F.s siblings gave me a rather generous gift voucher for my birthday to dine at the lush establishment, located in an old metal work factory on Gertrude St, Fitzroy. It was another dining highlight, coming very close to the Vue de monde experience (both, thanks to the decadence of my in-laws).
These foie gras & date cigars are an example of the exceptional detail and incredible flavor they serve up. Aren't they Fantastic?! Such fun and totally delicious. If you're daring and felt like whipping up a few for your next dinner party I came across a recipe by Shannon Bennett for Foie Gras Cigars over at The Chef's Pencil. They'd sure bring a bit of humor to the night and leave a much sweeter taste in your mouth than the cubans.
Snippets of days past:
The L.F.'s granny, Doo, passed away on the weekend. One of a kind. A total lady, whose incredible interest and thirst, for life & those she loved, will be so dearly treasured.
On a lighter note, I took a Stand Up Paddle Board lesson on Saturday with 2 friends. It was the perfect Melbourne day. Sunshine, not a breathe of wind and oh so beautiful to view St Kilda from the water. I can't wait to get out there again soon.
Crafty Monday's are back after a 2 month hiatus ...starting today. Hooray. I eased into it with another pair of these.
