Yesterday evening was fun. Long-time wine chum Nick Alabaster got together a group of wine nuts for a dinner at Canteen, a new-ish restaurant in Spitafields. The dinner was convened under the auspices of a celebration of the fact that my book Wine Science won an award, but it was actually a good chance to drink some fine wine in very good company. More on the wines later, but for now I thought I'd post some photos. Canteen is a brilliant restaurant - the combination of the food (modern British, high quality ingredients) and ambience (modern but classy and relaxing) is a winning one. It was one of the most enjoyable wine dinners I've attended.
