Living life between the barrel staves in Bourbon Country

Birthday Tapas and Tartines

Salami, Lemon Stilton, Triple Creme Brie and Smoked Gouda

I’m lucky that my friends enjoy food every bit as much as I do, therefore when a birthday or special occasion comes around there is really little thought as to what we will do to celebrate.  That we will eat, drink and be merry is a foregone conclusion.  Only the menu, time and place ever have to be decided.

This year was slightly more symbolic than others, and as such, justified a more extended celebration – tapas and friends on Friday, followed by a culinary crawl through downtown Lexington on Saturday. The slideshow that follows shows both the food involved and affection of my friends.  Thanks to all involved for a memorable birthday.
