T coming back from Paris is definitely worth celebrating which we do again tonight. First a little crostini with tuna, tomatoes, garlic and herbs – actually an attempt to recreate something that T had seen in Paris, but somehow it turned out italian instead.
For secondo lamb (culotte – upper thigh), marinated in olive oil, lemon, garlic and rosemary, roasted in the oven on top of eggplant, bell pepper, onion, fennel and more lemon. First the diced vegetables went in the oven at 190° for about 30 minutes, then the lamb was put on top and got another 30 minutes.
By now – if you have read through just a few of these pages – it should be obvious that K has a thing for lemon. And on this occasion she may have gone a bit overboard. Some mouthfuls were a bit on the bitter side (from the white part of the zest). But all'n'all it turned out good. 8/10
With it we had a bottle of Chateau La Gardine 2006 Chateauneuf-du-Pape, which was a good idea. Maybe not Chateayneuf at its best, but still good glass of wine 7,5/10 and together 8/10
