I was having a glass of a wine with a friend last night who is in the country on a flying visit to organise her wedding. It is going to be at the ancestral home in the provinces.
'How are you going with the catering?' I asked, 'are you going to be able to do it locally?'
'Hmmmmm,' she said,'I asked the "best" cafe in town if they could prepare me a sample menu, which they did.'
'They even included their signature dish.'
She took a sip of her wine and paused.
'Coleslaw with pineapple and marshmallows.'
Every once and a while I am reminded just how outstanding this country is, and last night was one of those times.
