Back in London

We’ve been here a week, and I think we’re about adapted to the time.  We’ve had some decent meals and wine so far, too.

Tonight we had chicken breasts stuffed with basil, mozzarella, and sun-dried tomatoes.  Opened a 2003 Aubert Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard.  This recipe has a lot of potential, although I totally underseasoned it, so it was a bit bland.  Also, I think using something like chèvre would have made it a bit tastier as well.  I love mozzarella, but it needs a supporting cast when cooked.

A couple days ago we had roast cod with Parma ham and red pepper coulis.  This was a really tasty dish.  I should have paired it with something else, but we opened a 2006 Rudius Cabernet Sauvignon.  The wine was really, really good, although a poor match for the dish.  Not that the meal was ruined, but it was one of those meals where you enjoy the food by itself and wine by itself, and they don’t really meet in the middle.
