Well, I doubt any of these items are even remotely Indian, but they sure were a delight to savour. I was treated to this delish platter during a recent lunch invitation from a friend. Thanks for the good time and good-er food, A.
On the plate are pasta cooked with basil, garlic, and tomatoes, grilled pork with orange and water chestnut, spiked with liberal rum sprinkling, and roasted cauliflower. The cucumber salad (with a vinegar-oil-garlic dressing) and pineapple juice proved just the right accompaniments for the appetizing meal.
I am glad I accepted the lunch offer. What better way to catch up with a friend than over food? A being the great gourmet and gourmand he is, proved his mettle--from peeling garlic, to cooking the delights and washing the dishes in the end. I came back from the lunch with a hearty stomach, and highly impressed with A's all-round skills.
