What I Had for Lunch Today: Tian
We had tian, corn salad, pickles (yes, homemade), and a terrific yeasty bread drizzled with olive oil. Dessert was biscotti and coffee. Sandwiched in between was a primo concert by the Pioneer Consort, a trio who play a variety of stringed instuments, mainly violin, cello and banjo or banjar. If you want to know what a banjar sounds like, buy one of their albums. Money well spent. I did, and I ran right home and played it a couple of times. Makes me want to have a secret tryst, just so I can hire them to play gypsy music at a candlelit tête-à-tête.
