Now another thing people who know me have heard me say millions of times – I like my food to be “WET”. So this serving of two very large (almost the size of my fist) ravioli sitting on a slice of char-grilled capsicum, with octopus tentacles draped over the top was rather dry by my standards!! Also not the way I normally eat pasta. Did I like it? It was OK! I would have altered the filling to give it a bit more wetness, I would have removed one or two tentacles so that I did not have the whole octopus on the plate and I would have provided a little sauce of some description. But, it was palatable. Who was the chef? – I don’t really know – I was the guest at a lunch and I don’t really know who was responsible for the menu. The main course was grilled fish, followed by a fig and frangipane tart – very satisfying. Albeit all a bit dry! BUT week one of my challenge has kicked off.
Share with me new tastes you have enjoyed lately.
In week two – just gone – the new tastes were salts, and I mean many, many, varieties of salt. I will tell you more in an upcoming blog ……but French Lavender salt on hot chips…….SENSATIONAL, Tahitian vanilla salt on ice cream…..DIVINE!! DC xx
