No one’s written up the ER meet up at Olio a week ago. Here goes..
The Wine Lady had a tasting of Central California zinfs and a wonderfully jammy bottle from Amador County. I’d like to get some more of that, for sure.
Some folks bought food to share. Jason (our host) got a Pizza margherita and I ordered a nice platter of French cheeses.
I had to leave before it ended. Oona was coming in from KC and we’ve had a lot of work to do, getting the townhouse ready to put on the market. No rest for the wicket.
On the 27th, I cooked a Belmont Butchery piece of boneless leg of lamb. It turned out wonderful.
Gigot a la Sept Heures!
I roasted this for 6 hours on a bed of garlic, rosemary, bay leaves, savory, & thyme at 300 F.
The roasted garlic cloves were like candy. Sorry I didn’t get a picture of the finished dish until we had devoured part of it. We served this with an Albariño and a bottle of Fin du Monde.
