Mouth orgasm

So Engage turned 4 about 2 weeks into my internship, and so we all went to Myoga to celebrate.
(Spoiler: Myoga gives you mouth orgasms)

We did the 6-course tasting menu with copious amounts of wine. Each course has about 5 options each, so so great. My choices were easy because of veggieness, but how others would choose I have no idea.

My 6 courses were:
Mouth tickler: Goats cheese and jalapeno samoosa with mango salsa and coriander
Salad: Haloumi and asparagus salad with poached egg and aged balsamic red pepper
Pasta: Potato gnocchi with smoked pumpkin, sage butter, roasted seeds and truffle cream
Cleanser: Lemon lime sorbet
Main: Wild mushroom risotto with asparagus and pecorino shavings
Sweet: Sticky banoffi pudding with glazed rum banana and vanilla bean ice cream

Possibly the best meal I have ever had.


Being grown-up (pfft)

So I am now a 'Creative Brandcrafter' (ie designer) at Engage Brandcraft in Greenpoint. We're opposite Beluga, which is rather dangerous when peanut butter sandwiches start losing their appeal...
I work with 4 great guys; Chris, Ian, Dijon and Vaughn. Chris talks branding even when drunk, Dijon puts porn music on for all of us to enjoy, Ian says "Just saying" a lot and Vaughn gets fillings without anaesthetic. I ask questions all the time and have the only messy desk in the office.
Feels good to be earning and working with awesome people all day :)
