Viva Espana & Meridian
We’re not sure what H.E. Ramón Gil-Casares, The Ambassador of Spain, was being served aboard his transatlantic flight to and from Madrid on official business, but those of us who dined on salmon tartar, lamb medallions with sauteed potatoes, pineapple and melon sorbet served with La Val-Albarino – Rias Baixas 2011 and Toro 2008 courtesy of Moet Hennessy at his Foxhall residence preceeding The Meridian Ball – we want to say thank you!
“Welcome to the Spanish house,” said Charge d’Affairs Juan Manuel Molina. “We are celebrating our long cooperation with Meridian House. We have a long history, founded about forty-five years ago. Today, dialoque is very important in a global society. We are very happy to be here with you and appreciate your cooperation. I would like to raise my glass to all of us and celebrate together our common friendship especially on international understanding in these interesting times. Muchissimas gracias.”
