Re: August emergencies

That week works for me and as the week of the glorious twelfth I'm happy to adorn full tweed hunting regalia ( avec glass or stirrup cup of Port in hand) for the photo shoot for next month's Horse and Hound. Sorry, forgive me, a touch of heat stroke for which Port will be a good cure!

Re: PLACEHOLDER: Quinta do Cachao Vertical

I and one or two others at last night's tasting think that September is still the best month for this vertical and so what about earlier in the month-say 18th?

Been slow to provide this but:

Truffle mac and cheese

Gammon and skinny chips with black pudding but with no egg (to be donated to JDAW if present). A side of the seasonal vegetables (so green beans/spinach etc)

Dessert TBD on the night

Thanks

I would be up for that Alex as it's one that was mooted a few years back. Maybe I shouldn't have decanted that bottle of V92 only an hour ago!

Re: Tue 5th June - Vintage with an '8' theme.

No longer being able to post from my work laptop as a consequence of an 'upgrade' to our internet security would appear to have been a contributory factor in missing placing my food order. I will therefore place on arrival. Apologies for the oversight.

Re: Warm-up for the BFT: Something nice from the 60s

Personally I would prefer to bring my 7 IVDP glasses rather than go to further (and unnecessary for me) expense in hiring. However, those that want to can do so.

I’ll encourage les autres by showing enthusiasm.
• Duck liver pâté.
• Gammon with everything including Ian’s egg.
But these is going to be one of those occasions where I opt for the rib-eye steak (medium-rare) skinny fies and green beans, preceded by the truffle mac!

Thanks

Re: Tue 17th April 2018: cellar reduction and health check

A huge thank-you to Magnus for giving of us some clearly suberbly stored Poirts ( a few of which-the W80 in particular, seemed to be in a sate of suspended animation!). Interesting to note that on this showing the F85 and T85 seemed to have flip-flopped in terms of evolution (the latter now coming a...
