Shabby Background

Thursday, July 22

Main course

For starters, I'd like some milk and whiskey....

A muscle towed my brow upward. "We are talking fine dining, people, and I want you all to go international," I announced to a group of Marketing majors last Sunday. These are what I fancied from their presentation:

1. Red mullet and skordalia (Greek)
2. Salmon sashimi with avocado (Japanese)
3. Braised halibut provencal (French)
4. Chargrilled prawns with lemongrass, tomatoes and coconut (Malaysian)
5. Lamb Steak with tequila and chilli (Mexican)
6. Veal roast with aromatic herbs and potatoes (Italian)
7. Roast mutton with red currant jelly (English)
8. Vermicilli with oyster mushrooms and king prawns (Vietnamese)
9. Somboon crab curry (Thai)
10. Chicken chow mien (Chinese American)
11. Barbecued lamb cutlets with mango and coriander salsa (African)
12. Bulalo (Filipino)
13. Paella vegetarian (Spanish)

Never again will I go to work with an empty stomach.
