I took the lovely boyf out to dinner last Saturday, with our friends the Bs. A gorgeous little restaurant with only 20 covers, designed to make you feel like you were eating at home albeit a very, very nice home with fabulously attentive hosts! They knew in advance that I don't eat meat and dairy and did me proud, not only was the food delicious, but my meals matched the other options, how lovely not to feel like the odd foodie out. And the "only 1 bottle left" wine list was a real treat, the boys took it as a challenge and Mrs B and I thoroughly enjoyed having a taste too. To top it all off, it snowed in March, and we ended the meal watching huge, beautiful flakes fall outside through a proper "picture window". Perfect evening.
This dish is inspired by my main course, our host kindly gave enough tips to start me off. It's not exactly as his was, I think I would need a homemade red Thai paste for that, and I've added in my latest great find, fish free king prawns.
