I decided to hold my own "Apalachin" style cigar mafia dinner in sunny Texas
last weekend !.... which took a lot of planning and was of course held at a
secret location :-)

Cigar connoisseurs from all over the country flew in for the event which was
a great success and enjoyed by all.

A pre herf was attended by the heads of the 5 families and whilst I handed
out some splendid Ramon Allones Belicosos, the attendees followed them with a
selection of rarest of rare 1492's,1994's Cubatobacco 25th anniversary
cigars to name a few.

The main event can only be described as a gastronomic delight, I am
salivating at the memory!...

Veuve Cliquot champagne reception....perfect with a cigar of course :-)

Smoked salmon crostini on fruit bread with capers

Calamari with arrabiata sauce

Ceviche Bianca with mango and avocado

Shrimp cocktail

Lobster cocktail with endive and granny smith apples

Corn and shrimp bisque

Melanzanna Parmigiana

Farfala pasta with mushrooms, bolognaise and spring peas

Roasted sea bass with clam broth and spinach

Petit fours


Accompanied with some delicious wines....Stonestreet Chardonnay Alexander
Valley 2005 and 2005 Chateau St Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon

....and just a few bottles of Chateau Margeaux 1986

The wining, dining, smoking and great conversation went on till 4 in the
morning !!!...and a great herf was enjoyed by all. I may have to make this
an annual event :-)

seeing you at the next herf :-)
