Let those corks pop!
Another 15 hours or so and 2009 will be no more than a memory. All in all, it has been a good year, with lots of little trips to France and the Belgian Ardennes, meeting up with old and new friends, cooking and eating great meals … and starting up this blog last May.
Tonight and tomorrow we will be toasting to the New Year with Champagne. When we buy our Champagne we take into account three criteria: the brand, the price and … the colour or design of the small metal cap on top of the cork. This last criterion may seem a bit unusual, but there is a very specific reason for it. I’ll tell you all about it in the New Year.
In the meantime, I wish you a very pleasant New Year’s Eve and a fabulous 2010! Let those corks pop!
See you in January!
