I tasted good company

Dining with friends is a great way to catch up. Recently I went to a Women-in-wine function which show cased some great wines from a wonderful wine maker, Ros Ritchie. She spoke well of the wines, regions and the wine making process, and she did it all without sounding like a pompous aristocrat. She was real and knew her stuff. The dining setting at the MCG helped and the fabulous food that accompanied it didn’t hurt either.

This lovely feast for the senses was a riot of flavours: smoked salmon and scallops, with rocket, radicchio, the odd pea on the plate and a few garnishes of Parmesan and a drizzle of dressing. Yum! …and that was only entree.

What made this evening special was the girlfriends that I shared it with. A bit of girl power every now and then is always a good boost. Your girlfriends tell you how it is and keep it all real. A recent gathering of my familial sisterhood (and there’s quite a few) was also a rewarding event. A relax atmosphere with great food (always!), good company and no time pressures is to be recommended. Good company is the best seasoning for a meal.
