This particular evening was hosted by the underground restaurant House of Commons with our exclusive chef for the evening Peter who hails from Caplansky and our sommelier Mark who paired my favourite, organic cava for our entrance cocktail and decadent and bold wines with every course. The company we kept ranged from all different industries and disciplines from the finance sector to media, fashion, PR, and car industry all seated together in one long table. Marcello was, as one would call him the
But of course, what you are waiting for is the report about our dinner, which was delicious! Being that our chef was from Caplansky - our entire dinner was very carnivorous!
Our soup course was a 5 mushroom consomme, you can taste the earthiness of the mushrooms and definitely there was one big juicy shitaki mushroom to enjoy. Our main was buffalo rack ribs which were tender and juicy but the BBQ sauce that was paired with it was what gave the dish UMMPH!
While the courses continued to come, we were still engaged in conversation and only stopped to take bites of our food, drink and savour those moments.
It was truly an intriguing night of great company, interesting dialogue and of course good food. Marcello continues to hosts these dinners series and who knows you may be 'chosen' as the L12 next time! As for the props, the paper and pen was handy for drawing and writing questions on. The hand creme was used obviously to keep our hands moisturized. The tape was used to tape up the questions we wrote down on a mirror at one side of the room at the end of the night. And the gum was to make sure our breath was fresh after our dinner. See- it's all a master plan!!
