Just a very brief note to say a huge thanks to my Colonial chowhounding chums for organising a great evening at Da Flora ( a magical place in the very truest sense of the word - they know what I mean )

The food was excellent Venetian-italian ( Bottaga (sp?) being the star treat ) and Melanie brought some interesting wines which go a long way to changing my views on the californian's ability to Vint ( is that a word?)

All in all, a memorable part of my West Coast debauchery.

So Ta! again and I hope to host a London dinner when any of you are in the UK. Hell, if he can stop whining about not getting his mum's cooking in London for a minute ( even a second ) we might even invite Howler. Now that would be an interesting meeting Anne Vs Howler. I might even pay more than I paid for my Hamed/Barerra Tickets.
