Twitter Tasting - the dinner table

For those who didn't follow last nights ground-breaking Hugel Twitter Tasting a transcript of my 'tweets' through the evening. To be read in reverse order as they are displayed in newest first order. For accompanying photos there is a flickr group where all who were there have posted images.

Ten of us sampled each of the wines in turn; each with a different course, twittering as we did so. Later, once the Americans sat down to their meal and tasting, we twittered about the wines. Finally collapsed to bed about 2AM.

not hugely impressed with the PB, vastly better with food - the onion tart was beautiful - the wines acidity cut thru the egg perfectly

Scallops first course - seems to have gone down well with the wine

The foie gras course

Not entirely sure how useful this is especially as it does not include the dozens of others who twittered through the evening, their questions and replies but I requred a record of the evening.

Compliments to the chef! The Scallops looked particularly well-prepared, and based on the tweets, were a big hit. Wish I were there.

Ooooh, I do love that top photo!

So do I Jeanne! Great aint it! A lucky shot really as with most of my best pictures it is just a point and click without much thought. That might sound a bit smug and all but its true!
