On Saturday, we went to Juli and John’s for a charcuterie dinner! Jin and I haven’t had oysters in awhile (ok, that was a lie, we just had some a couple weeks earlier at a photography opening at their store!) so we brought 4 dozens over from Oyster Boy (our favourite oyster house in the city).
Jin showed John how to shuck oysters, and away John went! He shucked all 4 dozen for us! Thanks John!
They prepared this amazing spread of cheeses and meat. I have never had charcuterie for a whole meal before which is surprising, as I am big lover of cheese. I guess I never thought I would be full, but boy was I wrong! My favourite cheese of the evening was this cheese with tartufo in it. I will have to remember to get it when I go to The Cheese Boutique one day.
We left with a parting gift, something they got in Japan. I think it looks like an owl, Juli thinks it looks like a scary face, but we treasure this little guy because he represents prosperity.
Thanks for a wonderful evening guys! (and for prosperity!)
