Dinner party

We held a little dinner party last night for some friends. It was a very pleasant evening and everybody enjoyed it.
As a mark of respect to one of the guests, a young nationalist who is quickly making a name for herself as a speaker, my wife put on a similar meal that she had prepared for another well-known nationalist many years previously. That was when Sir Oswald Mosley first visited us.
The menu (female readers like to know these things) was as follows:
Starter... Caviare.
Main course... Tournedos steak stuffed with oysters and served with oyster sauce, noisette potatoes, cauliflower with cheese sauce.
Dessert... Home made rhubarb crumble.

The meal was accompanied by couple of bottles of Champers... Pol Roger, (demi-sec) and Veuve Cliquot, (brut)
A bottle of very good wine brought by our guests was enjoyed later in the evening.
Other guests joined us after the meal and with a selection of four different malt whiskies and a wide choice of liqueurs, etc., a very convivial get-together ensued.
Quite a lot of bridge-building was done that evening and something tells me that my semi-retirement isn't going to last long!
