March can be summarized with two words – sunshine and freezing. We had a record breaking 249 hours of sunshine during March, but temps below freezing every single day. Spring seems to have gone missing...
Food- and wine-wise March was quite memorable with a long weekend in Copenhagen with TheMan (see last post), and Easter break with time to try new recipes in our kitchen. Duck al la Orange with wine braised onions, potato puree and crisp sugar snaps for example or seafood canapés. Favourite wines have to be to 2002 Domaine Latour Corton Grand Cru and 2009 Domaine Weinbach Riseling Schlossberg Grand Cru. Classic French wine making at its best.
