Satnam’s Birthday Dinner at the Kennedys
Andrew and Lisa kindly invited us to their house for my birthday dinner. Bless their souls.
Lisa is an excellent cook. She’s preparing a Niger Slater squid/lime dish here.
Ahhh, I think there few things more promising than a nicely set table.

The combination of squid, lime and herbs was divine.
Lisa also baked this utterly stunning focaccia (also Slater). It was outstanding!
The main was a Slater Kitchen Diaries lamb with chick pea mash. Super yummy. Lisa hand peeled each chick pea! This produced a wonderfully smooth mash.
The Kennedys provided a very tasty Shiraz from Stellenbosch: I loved it!
We brought a bottle of Kathryn Kennedy Lateral that I had brought over from California. One of our favourites which we had been saving for a special occasion.

Some candles went AWOL. Nigella’s luxurious Guinness cake.
