I was lucky enough this year to be invited to the Sofitel Melbourne Cup Lunch, it was a wonderful day, the food was great, the Chandon Champagne was amazing and I had a little win on Red Cadeaux.
For those of you who don't know - this is Laurel, Gary and Mark from radio station 4KQ, I have been listening to them for years now, I am a real fan of Laurel and of course her wonderful hubby, Troy Cassar-Daly. Every year 4KQ give away tickets to the famous Sofitel Melbourne Cup Lunch and I never win, this year was the same BUT I was extremely lucky to be invited by the Sofitel staff this year. After the main meal I went and found Laurel, Gary and Mark and they were so nice and very accommodating when I asked for a photo.
This is the Entrée - a succulent seafood selection.
The main - Seared Blue Pacific Swordfish served with corn and fennel risotto, my first time for eating swordfish - so delicious.
And of course dessert - various little yummy goodness.
I also had several glasses (I lost count actually) of Chandon.
Ahhhhh - it's all over for another year...
