Wednesday 19th October, 2016 – Cameron’s Kitchen, Stony Stratford
Cameron’s have for a long time run a series of wine dinners, based around a country or region and with food chosen to match. And so after a gap where they’d been trying to figure out what region to go for next, we found ourselves attending the Chilean wine dinner with our regular wine-dinner friends.
The food is usually interesting and always varied, though now and again the resulting dish is not what you might hope for. The starter with the first wine was a ceviche with a mix of fresh fish and prawns, and a very citrussy dressing containing both lime and lemon as far as I could tell, along with the red onions. It was fresh and zingy and sharp and got the meal off to a lovely start, though it really isn’t an autumnal dish. The puffed up flatbread with it mopped up the juices nicely and left us ready for more wine and the next course.
Luckily we’d have sufficient wine by then not to care much, but it was a shame as it let down what had otherwise been a very good meal.
