Dinner with the Parisians

Dinner with Parisians

         During our visit to Paris I had the privilege of being invited over dinner at Alex and Claire’s place. When Sudhakar informed me about the invitation we mulled over what do we gift them on our visit. Finally we decided on buying good French wine for the couple. Sudhakar being a non alcoholic we weren’t sure how do we distinguish the good from the bad. We walked into a mall at La Defense and asked the salesman to help us. He was kind enough to select a good Bordeaux wine bottle.
         I reached Sudhakar’s office at Suresnes in the evening after which Alex drove us to his home. En route we crossed apple orchards in the countryside.

         We were greeted by Claire over wine, juice, cherries and olives. Claire had pondered on deciding the main course menu as we were vegetarians.

Noodles for dinner

         She had prepared noodles with some veggies tossed over. It was her first attempt to prepare a vegetarian dish and I must say she had a done great job. It was here that I was introduced to the Peri Peri/ Piri Piri sauce from Portugal.

Claire and Alex were to be married soon, she showed me the small port wine bottles to be given to the guests in their wedding.

For desert there was the lip smacking pear tart and Portugal coffee. All in all a yummy evening with a wonderful couple.
