Birthday Boy John, Spoilt Once Again

What can I say, my friends are truly special, and after a great night out yesterday enjoying cheese fondue in Gruyères tonight we stayed home and cooked 5 star cuisine once again.

Day 1243 – July 27th, 2017

Together we prepared dinner

Stefano cooked his delicious herb crusted lamb racks, which are always a hit, and with them we served polenta, green beans & cherry tomatoes and Johns jus.

The finished meal was absolutely delicious. Fit for any top class establishment… accompanied by a magnum of Barberesco from 2013.

We decanted the wine well before dinner time and it was perfect especially when appreciated from a fine Riedel class.

For dessert we enjoyed a nut torte from one of the local pastry shops in Bern. With this we enjoyed a bottle of Elena.

After dinner Stefano turned back the clocks and we listened to many songs from the 80’s. It was a wonderful evening once more.

A few after dinner drinks with coffee listening to the tunes always creates great emotions.

Big thanks to Stefano for yet another memorable evening.

Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me…
