Food to Die For

He gazed at her apartment on the other side of the courtyard where the pots of brilliant red geraniums added a splash of colour to the drab gray cemented tiles.

He had been cooking since she accepted his invitation to a meal.  Once the menu was decided it was just a matter of sourcing the right ingredients.  Lung and Loin Bourguignonne, Tandoori Liver and thigh baked in clay with marrow with tiny Lady Apples on the side.

Only the best tableware with the finest crystal set on damask tablecloth would do to commemorate another culinary triumph for Dr Hannibal Lecter.

This week's entry is a bit late (almost in line to be next week's entry).  The food choice for this post was inspired by janice poon's blog

  1. Dear Subroto,

    Oh dear, not a dinner invitation to accept. And, of course, the next question is who's on the menu. Guess we're not talking beef liver are we? Great twist at the end. Earp.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

    1. Thanks Rochelle, he probably believes in giving a human touch to the meal. That blog link in the end is pretty interesting too.

  2. Ewww, Subroto. I also wonder who's being served. Great description--almost too good in fact. Well written. :) --- Suzanne

    1. Thanks Suzanne, I wanted to imply that it was a rival but am keeping it within the word limit and leaving it to the reader's imagination.

  3. Ouch,... I wonder if the guest and the menu are the same.

    1. No need to force feed as he cooks too well. But Hannibal’s foie gras is likely from a source other than ducks or geese ;-) Thanks for reading and commenting Sudhir.
