I’m not much of a cook but it’s mrs damonism’s birthday and she likes a home cooked meal (that she doesn’t have to make) so tonight I made duck confit with potatoes roasted in duck fat and broccolini sautéed in garlic butter, with blood orange Panna Cotta for dessert. It all went surprisingly well (I was particularly worried about the Panna Cotta because I hadn’t made one of those before and it has a long lead time so little margin of error).

We also had a pinot noir from Ten Minutes by Tractor and it was expensive (compared to what I usually spend on wine) but man was it good. I haven’t met a Mornington Peninsula pinot I haven’t liked, but this was something else. Would have been a bargain at four times the price.
