Dinner Impressions


A few impressions of a nice dinner at our friend Steffen’s, a very talented home chef. Everything was meticulously prepared and tasted delicious. A fun evening!

Frying a poached egg…

Prawn on poached egg, shrimp tartare, parsley foam– what a highlight!

This off-dry Riesling by Spreitzer was a good match with the first two courses. A bit of sweetness in the wine was a good-working combination with the mild shrimp.

Hare filets on seasoned Puy-lentils – Sensational, addictive preparation of the lentils!

Mild Chicken Curry.

A Rosé in a magnum bottle by Knipser was the perfect match with the curry!

This Roger Sabon Châteauneuf-Du-Pape “Le Secret des Sabon” held for a perfect finale of the meal! Powerful, nice fruit, complex!

    Just a thing, the hare doesn’t really look one: it seems too bright (the flesh) for being hare (wildhase). Was it not a rabbit or something like that?
