During times like this #coronavirus, it’s actually quite nice having the family around.
After brainstorming how to avoid cabin fever we found a fancy solution: celebrating family life with a special gala dinner just for the three of us but with everything that comes with it, except for guests. This is our way to stay positive in times like this. It’s a good idea to have something to look forward to at the end of a week.
The already settling ‘isolation routine’ for a brave student is filled with studying all day long – haha – ok got me 😇. I rather play games, read a book, watch Netflix, or hang on the phone. But this day will be different – something special.
Our famcy way to escape. 🤩
We cooked all day long and prepared everything for a unique gala dinner. To spice it up and get the whole feeling of the festive evening we all dressed up to the nines.
I’m sure you would love our seven-course menu! 🤤
Lamb’ Lettuce & Vinaigrette
Pasta with Ramson-Pesto
Zander on Mountain Lentils
Lime Sorbet with Agwa
Prime Rib Steak
from the Organic Young Cattle form Lungau (region in Salzburg)
Asparagus with Sauce Hollandaise
Paired with a Magnum bottle of Champagne Drappier – Brut Carte D’or and an amazing tasting really old wine from 1985 (quite some years older than I) – Chateau Margaux, Premier Grand Cru Classe. And most certainly a glass of sweet dessert wine and coffee should not be missing to complete a fantastic evening.
Oh yea, if somebody thinks now “But hey, isn’t it fasting period now?” – well yea, I’m totally aware of that, but for such an occasion you just have to make an exception! 😇🥳
You may also realized from that magnificent menu, that I’m really thrilled and a bit spoiled to have two amazing cooks at home! 🥰😎
Oh, and for those who are wondering “what the hell is ‘Agwa’?” This is a Bolivian herbal liquor made with Bolivian coca leaves and 37 other natural herbs and botanicals, including green tea, ginseng, and guarana, but from the beginning distilled and produced in Amsterdam. Thanks to its ingredients this sorbet-Agwa mix is used as an intermediate course due to its stimulating effect.
By the way, it’s very easy to prepare, you just have to buy these two ingredients (lime sorbet and the Agwa Liquor) and mix them together. And ‘Voilà’ – Ready to drink. 🍸
