My Meal Of Memories (And Win Jacob’s Creek Wine!)

Jacobs-Creek-wineA few years ago (pre-motherhood) I loved inviting friends over for a dinner party. We’d dress up, put on some good music and spend the whole evening eating and chatting and drinking wine. We’d probably then end up playing Rock Band on the Xbox afterwards because as much as we thought we were grown up, having a dinner party, there’s always time for Rock Band, right?

These days, dinner parties are less frequent non-existent, which is why I loved the chance to throw one, a couple of weeks ago, with Jacob’s Creek. They asked me to think of a three course meal which evoked special memories for me (read more about why I chose each course over here) and they chose a wine to go with each course. Which was jolly nice of them.

dinner-party

It struck me, as I laid the table for my guests, how ill-prepared I am for a dinner party. I mean, back in the day when we held them fairly often, no one expected any bells and whistles. But now we’re proper grown ups, we should really have place mats and napkins (with napkin rings I guess, if we’re being dead fancy). So all of that has gone on my ‘I should really buy that one day’ list, and I went with a minimal look, with a simple jar of flowers adding colour to the table.

The light was fading when my guests arrived, and I took this grainy snap of me with my mum – both enjoying a glass of Jacob’s Creek Reserve Chardonnay. Then we sat down for our starter – scallops with pea puree and pancetta. This dish reminds me of my first wedding anniversary, when Mr P and I went out for a posh meal in London and then stayed in the Soho Hotel.

scallops-bacon

I’m not sure I did this dish justice, in the presentation stakes, but I don’t pretend to be Nigella Lawson, I’m just me! And it tasted good, so that’s what counts, right?

Our main course was steak with triple cooked chips. We served it with roasted Chantenay carrots (my favourite of the carrots) but I made a total gaffe and forgot about the Bearnaise sauce. Whoops! Actually, though, it was testament to the steak that we didn’t actually need the sauce. Mr P cooked it to perfection (medium rare for me) and we ate it with Jacob’s Creek Reserve Shiraz. It took me back to our honeymoon, when I ate steak in a treetop restaurant in Port Douglas, Australia.

steak-chips

Next came the cheese board… usually my favourite course of all and one that reminds me of the Neal’s Yard Dairy cheese that Mr P bought for me when I’d just had our daughter, because he knew how much I’d missed unpasteurised cheese during my pregnancy. But at the dinner party, by the time we’d eaten our steak, and finished the bottle of Shiraz, it was gone 11pm and we were all pretty full up! So we ended up enjoying the cheese – and some more Jacob’s Creek wine – the following day.

    There are all the usual dinners we had as a family, Sunday dinners, winter sausage casseroles and summe Bbq’s. However, my favourite meal of the year was, and still is, Boxing Day turkey sandwiches.
    It reminds me of the joy of Christmas – that golden time in the run up to new year where life really slows down. Good doesn’t have to be fancy! Turkey sandwiches and a splash of ketchup… That’s my meal bliss!

    My twitter name is @mrshumphreyjr my memory evoking dish is Iceland’s individual pizza’s which my dad would serve up nearly every Saturday whilst my night nurse mum was getting her sleep. The memories of these lovely dad and kids days was enhanced because both my brother and I would fall upon our foods like we hadnt eaten for days, but my dad would carefully add pickles, chutney and other condiments to his meal, but the time he started to eat, we would have nearly finished. Interestingly although during my childhood I hated all of these condiments, now I am the same, adding pickles and chutney’s to my meals….

    @chiprocky My mum is the queen of pudding making and nearly every Sunday she would make us either a lemon meringue pie or a creamy rice pudding. The whole family including aunties, uncles and cousins would crowd into our kitchen eagerly awaiting their share.

    My OH and I are huge foodies – with waistlines to prove it!
    We love to celebrate all occasions with food and wine. So many meals so many memories.

    I think the starter would be Tiger prawns in shells with lemon and garlic. First time we ate them abroad was celebrating my 40 the birthday – OH had a wine too many on board and tried to crunch the shells! We still laugh about it today. We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary in New York and ate the tastiest steaks in Gallaghers Steak HOuse off Time Square – a magical, memorable evening. No meal is complete without one of my mothers steamed syrup sponge with custard – sadly she’s no longer with us but all her puddings are never to be beaten, hers were the best including Spotted dick and Jam Roly Poly. I never did get her recipes off her. That is my meal of memeories. I’m bluemoo17 on Twitter. Lovely comp and blog

    Twitter name @loveyourlifelive my favourite meal is a sea food platter… I have so many reason for this amazing dish and will choose it above any other choice on the menu…. To sample this gorgeous dish at home would be a real treat and would evoke some of my fabulous memories….
    When I was 16 I work in a seafood restaurant and had so much fun…that when I came back from my travels in my twenties I worked there again to save extra cash… After meeting Mr p, we shared our very first seafood platter …. Still together 20 years later so this tasty dish brings back, fun times in my youth, happy times in my marriage and also reminds me of living in Australia.

    It’s a simple meal, mashed potato, cheese and hard boiled egg all mixed in together.
    It was the “close to pay day” meal in our house when growing up but we never knew that at the time. It was just a fun meal. Now realizing that makes me appreciate my parents even more

    For me it’s Irish stew. My mum and dad’s first date was at the St Patrick’s Day ball so ever since I remember we have had Irish stew to celebrate on St Patrick’s day and heard the story! Now every time I eat it I’m reminded of true romance and happy family times. I’ll have to start telling my kids all about mine and daddy’s first date over milk shakes whenever we drink those too :). P.s you need to do more dinner parties, food looks scrummy!

    My Mum is Irish and used to make us huge pans of her version of Irish Stew, with corned beef. I used to love it and still do, although I’m veggie now, so I use Quorn pieces instead of corned beef nowadays. For afters, there was always lots of home-made baking, including her locally famous shortbread. She doesn’t bake as often nowadays, but I’m happy to say that she’s baked some shortbread for us today!

    Christmas dinner. It reminds me of the times 13 of us used to descend on my grandparents’ house (2 up 2 down) each year. We were so many that we had to have 2 sittings and we weren’t allowed to open presents (that were brought by aunts/uncles and grandparents UNTIL everyone had eaten, so there was no rushing off to open them. Great times, sadly no longer with us and now there are still so many of us that we would need about 5 sittings if we were to do it now. @STORMBAT (did it wrong first time round, sorry)

    Sweet potato fries – remind me of my holidays to the usa – we started eating them out there about 10 years ago before they became popular in the UK

    Pizza reminds me of a lovely holiday to Rome when we enjoyed delicious pizzas straight out of a woodfired oven and drank wine al fresco with views of the Acropolis on a hot Summer evening – unfortunately no pizzas have ever matched up in taste! @LindyHine

    The meal which always evokes happy memories for me- homemade lasagne and chips with key lime pie for dessert. It was the first meal I cooked for my (then) boyfriend. 14 years and one wedding and two kids later we still have this on our ‘date night’s.

    My meal of memories is everytime I smell or cook chicken breasts with bacon wrapped round them and onion. It bring so many memories of my Nan, who used to cook a loads of them for us, wrap them up in tin foil and give them to us for a long journey in the car. We always got them when we were going away and they were delicious! Even to this day the memories come flooding back!
