Casa Ali ~ March menu + <3 dinner update

14 Feb dinner update and gallery

Why did I buy into the glamour of Valentines day when after all it was a Thurs-day? The symbolic has great power to re-ignite the past in a jiffy. I love all things ritualistic which you can make your own. It was a very intimate dinner for four guests and three arrived. Sebastian my sous chef had to go rescue a friend in need who was under pressure from the enormous expectations of the day. Valentines day was worth £1.3 billion to UK retailers and American spend on the day fetched $17.6 billion.

I was well chuffed at how the evening turned out at Casa Ali. Jon and Sara both live within 10 miles of  South Norwood, where as Kehkashan made an epic journey all the way from Osterly, nearly an 1.30 hrs journeys by public transport each way! The only aspect I couldn’t include as part of the evening’s promise was the foot rub – time just slipped past! The gallery has new items on the menu, the repeats can be viewed in the previous post. View and follow Sara and Kehkashan‘s image streams on instagram.
