PictureAt the end of our May lunch we decided to try something a bit different and settled upon the theme of Italian wines. We approached La Cucinetta’s chef and he agreed to create a special menu for us.

Ray did a great job organising the people and the food and I’ve done my best in recording the afternoon.

The restaurant produced individual menus for us and I’ve reproduced one here.

The entree was seen as a “white” friendly course and the other two courses were “red” friendly with the slow roasted lamb specifically created for barolo.

In the end we had some profiteroles and cheese as well, though both were slightly disappointing. However, I must admit my judgement and notes were becoming rather hazy by then.

We had 7 lunchers : Geoff and Nikki – Barolo (times 2), Greg – white, Ian – Barolo, John – sparkling, Ray – the white(s), David – Barbaresco
