Chez Toño

About a year ago, Toño started a new job as wine buyer for a posh wine seller. Toño is responsible for all Latin countries except France, Quebec and Louisiana. This was a dream come true for Toño and he is very happy at his new post

The buyer team at his new firm has this tradition to invite each other home for a fine dinner and so tomorrow, they will drop by at our residence for a little soirée.

It is not that you cook and they have to eat what you serve them... far from it, every tiny little detail is discussed in the team and (luckily for our household budget) they also contribute some of the wine.

To cut a long story short, here is the menu they came up with:

Wow what a feast! Are you making all of it at home? Glad to hear us awkward vegetarians are catered for

Your menu sounds incredible, but more like a restaurant.. Are you sure you aren't also chefs in your free time? Hope the dinner goes really well!
