On 24 July we had a Forgeron Wine Dinner at the Buzz. Like I said in another blog post, I think all we did all weekend is eat and have a glass of wine or a Hendrick’s Gin and Tonic, whatever the situation called for.

All of the dinners/events were definitely fun and generally good! This wine dinner at the Buzz was a quarterly dinner – a very special event each quarter. There were some empty seats, so if you were not there, you could have been.

Here are the photos of the evening. The wines we had are also listed, with my score in (score). Just one thing to note: I messed up and did not photograph the Gazpacho Nuevo, a really delicious cold dish with cream, cucumber, water cress and some other things. So sorry!
