Feast: September Celebrations Part One

September is an unimaginably celebratory month for me--and this year even moreso:
  • my beloved boyfriend, The Fussy Eater, and I celebrate two years together;
  • this humble little blog turns one year old;
  • Hagia, Beanie and Zeus, my adorable kitties, were all born in September, and
  • the Feast Day of Cardamom Addicts and Sensual Gourmets is celebrated with all the rites and pagentry it deserves...well, not really, there could always be more pagentry(yes, my birthday is coming up)
And you thought that truffle was the only bit of wondrous decadence I'd be posting about this month...

To get ready for a month of feasting, TFE and I had a wonderful dinner at a truly fine establishment. Our meal started with some wonderful flatbreads dusted with zatar spices, followed consisted of a composed salad made with red grapefruit and avocado, followed by a pretzel-encrusted pork tenderloin served with snowpeas, corn and poached pear, with a dessert consisting of orange-cinnamon sorbet and lemon-poppyseed poundcake with blueberries. To finish off this meal, there were two of the most dreamy chocolate-mint truffles known to man.

Happy everything! I too celebrate my one year old blog this month, as you know, my 6th anniversary with my husband and his birthday. September is the month for celebration and an excuse to dine at restaurants we have had our eye on all year. Looks like you picked a really good one. Wondering if you could let me know the name of the establishment?

What a marveoullous feast - though I must admit that my eyes keep being drawn back to the truffles. Mmmm, chocolatey goodness! Congratulations on the many milestones this month holds for you, and I hope I can keep reading about your adventures for a long time to come :)

Hello all

Kat - Thanks so much!

Tanna - That was really nice bread. They also had a cheese-curryleaf bun which was quite nice.

Sarah Lou - I've emailed you the name of the restaurant, in case you decide to make the long drive over...and if you do, you need to let me know :)

Ivonne - Thank you, my dear!

Phoenikia - Welcome! I'll send you the restaurant name--it's not in TO, so it would be a day trip for you.

Ellie -- How absolutely sweet! Thank you so much!
