Recent meetings

Unfortunately we were still short of one of our members, but we remembered him in the customary manner.

July
The menu we had set ourselves was a bit challenging in terms of time (more than I had expected – I allowed pre-discussion to go on a bit too long!), and we enjoyed a meal of red orzo risotto (yet another recipe from Lindsay Bareham’s column in The Times!) bulked out with griddled chicken thighs (giving a hint of barbecue on a summer’s evening) to satisfy the demand for animal protein amongst us, and served with green salad; followed by luscious lemon pudding with pouring cream (which I had overlooked we had had once before). This was once again washed down with our favourite Côtes de Rhône from E. Guigal.

Thursday 13th June – Unfortunately we were short of a couple of our members, but we remembered them in the customary manner.
Fortunately the menu we had set ourselves was not too onerous, and we enjoyed a meal of Dijon Salmon Salad (yet another recipe from Lindsay Bareham’s column in The Times!) served with minted Jersey new potatoes; followed by Chocolate Soufflé. This was once again washed down the same Chardonnay as last month from the Maconnais region of Burgundy – Viré-Clessé de Viré 2016.

Tuesday 7th May – Chicken and Mushroom casserole (à la Ray), served with creamed potatoes or rice and seasonal vegetables, followed by traditional marmalade bread and butter pudding. Note: for which a suitable white wine was suggested and agreed. At an earlier meeting, after a brief – and unnecessary – debate it was agreed that, when attendance so dictates, there should be a second bottle of wine. Agreed nem con!
