Dinner at Tassia’s

When friend-and-fellow-foodie Tassia tweeted that she was about to cook up a storm and was looking for dinner guests, I bit the bait and went right in.

I turned up with wifey Kristal and an empty stomach, ready to devour whatever Tas had in store for us. However, I was refused access into the kitchen and was told to hold my corners. Lol.

The night was spent chatting away over endless glasses of wine and delectable eats. We started out with a nice bottle of perfectly chilled Yellow Tail Moscato and nibbled away at aperitifs of pepper-stuffed olives, plantain chips, and French macaroons.

And a very luxurious Quiche Lorraine made by some French friends that were visiting her.

But the highlight of the night was Tassia’s chunky chicken penne alfredo. I’ve got to admit it was one of the best pasta dishes I’ve had. Perfectly cooked penne with just the right amount of cream, seasoning, and plumped chunks of chicken breast fit for meat lovers, aka me.

My sage worked well, too.

By this time we were well on our way with the second bottle of wine.

Oh, I almost forgot the scrumptious garden salad which started the entrée round. The freshest medley of lettuce, olives, carrots, bell peppers, sweet corn and raisins, topped with grated white cheddar and drizzled with a divine balsamic vinaigrette, one of my fave salad dressings. This definitely cleansed our palates and prepared our tastebuds for the rich, impending penne alfredo.

The night ended with a reminder that the following day was a workday. #womp Nonetheless, everyone was pretty buzzed to even be bothered. All in all, it was a great night spent with great friends, great food, and yes, great wine.

Live. Love. Eat.
