I know it´s cheating to post a picture and a tiny text and pretend it´s a proper entry. At least, I saw that on mattbites the other day, so now I know I´m being guilty of bad net manners.
But this doesn´t merit much more than a brief comment.
Yesterday evening I went to a wedding reception. It was a very grand wedding, they´d pulled out all the stops. The venue was a XVI century royal palace, the garden was amazing, the band, the piano recital at the beginning, everything was tip-top.
As was the food, which was highly delicious. But in that Spanish-caterer way.
First you´d be offered a mini pastela, redolent of cinammon . Then would come a shot of gazpacho. Then a tiny square of something that looked like cheese but turned out to be foie d´oie dipped in white chocolate. Then would come chorizo.
See? Hot and cold. Übertrendy one minute, comfort food the next. I was blown this way and that, as I sipped my daiquiris and said hi to my relations.Dazed and confused, you could say.
And the balsamic glaze. What´s with the balsamic glaze?
Is everything drizzled with balsamic glaze all over the world, or is it just us, going trough a phase, and it will stop?
