What to expect at Lauren's place
Great mix of Sherries, and a great journey of tastes from the drys to the very sweetest. The food pairings were superb and gave ideas of how sherry could be incorporated into any (or every) course of a dinner party. The food itself was delicious, the pulled pork in a Brioche Bun particularly stands out and was delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed the surprise dessert, it worked well, a good bit of showmanship and I am pleased that I now know how to pronounce Jerez, having pronounced it in a more “obvious / ignorant ” way, all my life. A well presented and entertaining evening with plenty of background of each drink and , for me, interesting to find out how Sherry is actually made.
