The invitation went something like this:
Hennessy would like you to come and sample some cognac and cocktails. Thursday, 3.30pm. You free?
Notwithstanding the fact that I am not much of a brandy drinker, I recognise
free drink when I see it the need to go forth and sample such things for the greater good of my readers. Besides, I am fond of brandy butter, brandy snaps and I’ve even been known to have the odd brandy alexander, so it’s not like I had a massive aversion to the task at hand.
Seeing Hennessy in a new light
So, with my sampling boots on, I headed off for what turned out to be quite an educational affair (honest, guv).
Would you care for some wine with your meal? Why, yes, silly question,
hand it over here’s my glass…
Now, I will put my hands up and say that I am no expert on the subject of fermented grape juice. That fact, however, does not deter me from quaffing my fair share. Expertise requires practice and I am all about further education for my taste and wine buds. So you can guess that I was more than happy to chat with the guys at Curious Wines about trying out some wine matches for the Daily Spud. I mean, where do I sign?

Yes, you could say that I have taken a bit of a minimalist approach to the Eating Your Words Challenge.
