The Duchess Dines . . .

3219 Glendale Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90039

Last night we had a very fun time at Canele, the narrow boite a stone's throw from Los Feliz on Glendale Boulevard in Atwater Village.  The Duchess, having relocated, rarely makes it over to that side of town anymore, but this was a special occasion.

Canele periodically hosts "Friends Cook" evenings on Tuesday nights, where -- in addition to the regular menu -- a three course prix fixe option concocted by a culinary friend of Canele's is offered.  Last night was one such night, and our friend David Shiverick of Langdon Shiverick Wine Imports was the appointed chef.  It was delicious! 

Perhaps most enjoyable was the wine:  we toasted with the Fin Amour "Cuvée Cuthbert" Vin de Pays des Cotes Catalanes, from David's vineyard in the South of France at the base of the Pyrenees (French Catalonia, very Le Comte de Monte-Cristo).  A blend of Grenache Gris and Carignane Blanc, it was spectacular.  If in New York you may have a bottle over dinner at Daniel, or at August in the West Village.  Highly recommended, and well done David!
