Alsace Society Chapter 3 - Annual GEWURZTRAMINER Meeting at Bar-Roque Grill, 7 September 2013

After a summer hiatus, we reconvened the Alsace Wine and Gastronomy Society at Bar-Roque Grill for its Third Chapter, which I titled the AGM (Annual GEWURZTRAMINER Meeting), an Alsatian feast featuring six of the best Gewurztraminers from Alsace.  And for my friends at the Registry of Societies, no we are only an informal grouping of wine and food lovers and are not officially registered, so I will not be lodging any minutes or accounts anytime soon.  I can, however, share with you this wonderful photo of a whole roasted foie gras d' Alsace, served with roasted quetsch plums marinated in Chinese five-spice, courtesy of our favourite Alsatian chef Stéphane Istel:

The rest of the AGM, of course, was no less spectacular...
