apologies for radio silence - busy times since last you heard form me. for my birthday e and i went into the countryside (sort of) for a lovely walk and a bit of foraging last saturday, yielding some boletus. sadly, these were less delicious than i had hoped. during the week i managed to slip a few dry martinis in and around the many conference calls, including my first visit to the attractive hix bar in soho. yesterday, i made my very first batch of sausages (of which some pictures will hopefully follow). then along to dan and an lizzie's for some 80s fun and much catching up.

pretty amazing dinner last night at st john with old school faces - bone marrow, crab with mayonnaise, braised lamb, roast guinea fowl, pavlova and plum crumble with lots of wine and a fernet branca to top it off. basically i ate way, way too much food and perhaps the digestif may not have been my wisest move. anyhoo, yo la tengo were sitting at the next table and admired my technique dismembering the poultry - a great honor indeed.

lots of pictures of food (hopefully) to come, instead today two reviews. The winery is a jolly nice looking wineshop located just round the corner from lords. better, even, than aesthetic considerations is it's wonderfully wide range of german wines - i bought a couple of bottles and the first was a cracker. secondly, i am just back from scott pilgim vs the world - again visually very strong. however, i should but refer you to a blog for my over-riding sensation: i am getting old.
