I’m interpreting during a dinner tomorrow and had to choose what I wanted from the menu: I chose Wild Mushroom Risotto, Globe Artichokes Barigoule and Chocolate Marquise & Pistachio Ice Cream, when really, what I wanted was a selection of Antipasto, Roasted Rump of Lamb and Selection of Cheeses.
Why? Because in my experience, it’s best to pick foods that don’t require too much chewing during these kinds of dinners. Needless to say, I didn’t look at the wine list.
