I’ve been thinking what to make next week but I’ve settled on making Italian next week. I’ll use some of the best recipes I’ve learnt at Capo Cucina, my monthly Italian workshop from the past few years. I hope I can do the recipe justice! For wines, I wanted to try some Rosé this time but I’ll substitute whites if I can’t find wine that matches well with the food.
Had a great evening last Monday with Chris-Thai-nite! A record 9 guests attended, including myself, and it was the first time I welcomed people who are not direct friends or family. So a big thank you to an old friend of my parents: John and his daughter who gave the dinner as a birthday present to her dad.
My menu went very well. Pictures above. Big surprise was how well the Mango cake turned out. A bit moist still, but great taste and I’ll surely try to optimize the recipe.

Next week marks another ChrisTonite. The Thai food I had prepared for last time was great but sadly there were no reservations, so I ate them myself. But it was great to make them and I want to get better, so I’m making Thai food again.
Monday, June 13th is an official holiday in Holland, so everyone should be able to make it! I already have
2 7 reservations, so I have room for 1-2 more guests… Please also tell your friends to register for the site so they get notifications about the dates when I’m open.
