Bloody Mary Cazpacho with lamb and melon skewers
"A meal without a glass of wine is our name Breakfast. "Ha! What a very sympathetic statement, with which Vijay Sapre tells us in the editorial of the current issue of the Effilee, where the culinary hammer hangs. In Germany, one slips with such habits quite quickly into a questionable corner: "LUNCH already have a glass of wine?" One is often asked by caring people in the area. And one sees clearly in the cloudy or doubtful folds of the forehead that one moves with this improper behavior rather quickly towards the edge of society. At least in thought. Is she drinking secretly? Does she need alcohol in broad daylight? Do we have to talk urgently? Maybe she has a problem?
The answer is no, we do not have to talk (at least not about it). I feel fantastic! I only prefer the French lifestyle. I love good food and I love good drinks, I derive a lot of quality of life and joy. Even a simpler meal gets something elegant and round through an average good wine. And why should not I spoil myself with delights even during my lunch break, after spending half a day doing some work and spending another good part of the day? Why should I torture myself with a sweet soda as an accompaniment, if I can have it tastier? Just. You have to do it well as soon as possible. Point.
Incidentally, this should not be a call to professional drivers, operators of heavy machinery and pregnant women to neatly nibble at noon. It is only a desire not to consider every consumption of alcohol as an expression of a deep-seated problem, but also to allow enjoyable, carefree sides. We understand each other, right. Drink responsibly. And don't drink and drive. But have a nice lunch.
Stupidly, I can not think of an elegant textual transition to the delicious soup down the picture. Let's try it instead with a pinch of sarcasm: If you do not want to raise the wine stigma in public, you can use inconspicuous things. How about, for example, a glassy vodka in the soup? For camouflage you just add a small skewer.
