  1. Many thanks Carlos! I'm laughing out loud actually :)

    Anna proposes Borschtsch with an extra glass of acidic red wine (!), Renè Pape simply couldn't propose anything that didn't contain rotKRAUT!?
    Ferruccio with Schrammler wine instead of Brunello... What is he thinking!?
    And to top it all Joyce chips in with cinnamon rolls -- for a 300 euro dinner.

    Gotta love this :)

  2. BTW Carlos are you going to Salzburg yourself?

  3. Hahahaha ;)))) Well there is also some risotto and steaks ;))) + book + Montblanc gift... ;)))
