Disclaimer: My throat is so sore that it hurts to swallow. My head is woozy from all the coughing. My chest hurts, because that is what it does when I get sick. I'm pretty miserable and definitely not to be trusted in the kitchen.
Which is where Captain Awesome's spectacular cooking comes to the fore. Tonight we had pasta. Delicious, easy to eat pasta followed by artisan gelato and tiramisu. I am so lucky that he knows how to pick a restaurant to suit the situation.
We went to Mediterranean Food Warehouse for their 2:4:1 pasta night. It was so worth the trip out in the cold. I had Spaghetti Bolgnaise with Italian Parmesan, CA had Lasagne. They were delicious, the service was great and they even had a half serve of ravioli for Monkey. The live music added to the lovely atmosphere.
The medicinal tiramisu soothed my throat and the medicinal gelato soothed Monkey's.
They also have 2:4:1 pizza nights on a Monday. Woodfired, artisan pizza with real Italian ingredients. Can I recommend the Chorizola - chorizo and Italian gorgonzola. It is my favourite pizza - ask for a little garlic.
The best part of the whole Mediterranean Food Warehouse experience is that you can browse their aisles of imported delicacies and gourmet ingredients, gathering inspiration for when you are well enough to cook again. And if that day doesn't come they offer cooking classes.
And if none of this tempts you - their coffee... o.m.g!
