The Standard Food Order

Post by AHB » 14:15 Wed 06 Jun 2018

At last night’s dinner we concluded that it would be a good idea to post here each person’s default food order. If you don’t change it, this is what you will get.

If you want to change your default order, check out the menu available from the Boot & Flogger home page.

My default order is:
• No starter

• Special order bone in rib-eye steak (medium-rare) with skinny chips
+ Green beans with shallots

• No dessert
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
