Friday night dinner
Chris had invited us out for food on friday night with a group of people he knew, but sadly Neil couldn't make it as he had to work late. So I trotted down to meet them all at a gorgeous Italian restaurant called Cujorl, a short walk from where we live. The others included two American women, Hope and Suzy, as well as Peter who we had met before at the jazz session. It was a fab evening with lovely people and delicious food and wine. We were especially impressed with the owner's mushrooms - they had been flown in that day and were artfully displayed on a shelf next to our table. Me and hope asked for a "bespoke" risotto with the said mushrooms, whilst others had steak topped with foie gras etc. Mmmmmmmm!
