Hello Folks,
Just reminding you that I am away from 11-17th November on the Douro Cruise so you will not receive any replies from me.  I will deal with mail when I return to my desk a week Monday.  In the meantime, any wine orders and money need to be with me by 29th November so if you need a copy of the wine list then let me know as soon as possible.  Otherwise place your order and payment for me to deal with on my return.
If you are lucky enough to be included in the Christmas dinner dance on December 6th then your food choices and the money also need to be with me by this date as well please.
And then into 2020 – On January 17th I have organised a lunch at the new and exciting Indian restaurant above the Farmacia in Luz called Sandeep’s.   Most Indian restaurants use recipes  from Northern India but Sandeeps include a lot of Southern recipes too so many of the plates are new to us. The chef has worked in 5* hotels and has a very good reputation so we are assured of a delicious meal consisting of a variety of dishes to share, including a special vegetable biryani that is often used at weddings feasts.  The cost is €23.50 for members, €25 for guests and that includes half bottle of wine pp and a tip for the waiters. Here is your chance to try some delicious foods that you may not be familiar with but that retain all the flavours of India.
I have 3 events lined up for February. On Friday 14th we will have a tournament at the Pro-Putting Garden in Lagos.  This is not serious golf – indeed I have never played the game but I can work my way round this course! This will be in the morning.
We can then cross the road for a meal in the Peiking Chinese Restaurant where a variety of dishes including the crispy duck pancakes will be served, again with half a bottle of wine pp. You can attend either one or both events as you wish. I have only finalised the date so can’t tell you prices etc. but people are booking anyway if you wish to be included.
Then on Friday 28th February we will head to the Luca’s Rooftop Restaurant at the Carvi Hotel in Lagos. The starter is Melon & Ham,  then your choice of Pork Loin stuffed with Plums and Walnuts, OR Algarvian Rice Fish Stew, OR Couscous with Vegetables and Raisins and finally I have changed the deserts to either Chocolate Mousse or Fresh Fruit Salad. €22.50 (€25) including the tip and wine.  I will need to know each of your courses for this one please.
I already have bookings for all of these events so don’t miss out, contact me quickly as all have limited numbers.  Messages will be answered oldest ones first on my return.
