I have at last returned home, and the revelry has already begun. I spent my first full day back gorging myself on excellent food prepared by myself and some friends. Lunch consisted of black tiger prawns in a white wine, butter , shallot, and garlic broth with a fresh baguette. The desert was a cake soaked in grand mariner topped with a warm fresh berry compote and brandy whipped cream. Dinner was a chinese feast put together by my friend Iris. The meal was composed of scallion pancakes made from scratch, deep fried pork spareribs, rice ovalette ( chinese equivalent of dok) stir fry, mushrooms and bok choi in a light soy-anise gravy, and lots of little ranch 99 appetizers. Tonight I have a date with the leftovers.
