I thought I'd get in trouble of I didn't join in, so here goes:
Cat Power's The Greatest. Listen to it. Now.
A year-long trip around Italy in a supersized VW Combi.
So hard. I do love my food. However I have settled on:
Starter - A big bowl of steamed mussels cooked to perfection in a garlicky creamy white wine sauce and served with a crusty bread roll for mopping up the juices. Waiter - more Champagne!
Main Course - Homemade Italian ravioli filled with spinach and ricotta served in a sage butter with fresh Parmesan and cracked black pepper. Bertani Amorone 1975 to drink. Grazie Mille!
Dessert: Creme brulee with a side of pistachio ice cream (they don't really go together but how does one choose?)
Cheese Board: As recommended by the Chef.
Johnny Walker Blue Label.
Oh my God I'm so stuffed.

Now that all doesn't sound so bad does it?
